Welcome to Adobe Forums.
Are you on a MAC or Windows ?
Which browser are you using ?
Do you see a Flash bouncing Icon here : http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/
Please elaborate, when you say "it won't work"
No, I did not see a bouncing Flash icon.
When I say "it won't work", that is what I mean. It goes through the download, tells me it is finished and then when I go back to a video, it still tells me I need Adobe Flash. It shows up in my control panel, but I can't get it to do anything. I am using Windows OS 7, and E internet browser.

Save it to your downloads folder - DO NOT run it yet.
