In updating Adobe Flash Player an error message said I did not have authority to download it. I am listed as Administrator through the control panel and have been doing this for years! What do I do?
Download the offline installer for your platform
Windows: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/installation-problems-flash-player-windows.html#mai n-pars_header
Mac OS: http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/licensing/mac/install_flash_playe r_11_osx.dmg
Since you mention Control Panel I assume that you are on Windows. Right-click on the downloaded offline installer from the previous post, then select Run as Administrator.
