Pat thanks for the reply but the link doesn't work..I have tried in IE and FF
Which link; the link I posted, or the download links on the target page?
What exactly means "not work"; do you get an error message?
The link that you posted does not work ...
How does it "not work"?
Pat, quite simple the link does not load... at all.. regardless of what browser I use.
I have clicked on it and opened in a new tab and also copied and pasted it into FF.. The site never comes up at all. It just sits there and indicates it's trying to load.
Interesting; it opens quite immediately for me. Here are the direct download links
for Internet Explorer: http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/current/support/install_flash_player_ax.exe
for all other browsers: http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/current/support/install_flash_player.exe
No luck unfortunately when clicking both these links from IE9 they just sit there. When I say sit there they don't even start to download. I can see in download manager they are approx 16.8mb and 16.2mb but it just gives me a pause and cancel option it never eventuates..any more ideas ???
You use a download manager? Can you download them directly?
Yes, these files are about 16MB each, and it takes me about 1 second to complete the download.
One more alternative download place: http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distribution3.html
Download Manager as in the utiliy that IE9 uses. By pressing ctrl+J within IE9 brings up the downloads... that's what I ment.
I have tried the alterantive download place as well and tried to download the IE EXE installer and the plug-in based browsers EXE ,.. same result doesn't eventuate..
more suggestions please..
Something must be wrong with your system, or your Internet connection. I can download all these installers instantly, and I am more than 8,000km away from the download servers.
Suggestion: restart your machine, clear your browser cache, then try again.
Final alternative: download the 11.7.700.224 archive file from http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/archived-flash-player-versions.html and extract the installers from there.
HI Pat. I have restarted my computer. I have cleared all history and cookies and even cache under developed tools (all within IE9)..
This didn't make a difference, I also clicked on the link above and it does the same thing. Indicates it's finding the webpage but nothing renders..
Any more suggestions ???
- I have checked that there are no previous versions (via appwiz.cpl) impeding the download.
Is there any registry settings that can be reset \ cleared ?
Very desperate to get flash working again.
Can you download other stuff (installers)? If not, you may have a malware problem.
As a last resort I have uploaded the installers temporarily to Google Drive. I will send you the link via PM, then delete the file after you are done.
P.S. I will be away for a few hours now.
Pat can you please keep these installer files active for a day or so more as I haven't been around to try and download yet
I will wait until I hear from you.
H Pat thanks for this
I was able to install adobe but yes there seems to be another problem
preventing my computer from downloading anything at all
I can now browse to sites such as gmail and YouTube but it fails to load
the inbox or video after 8 seconds in.
