Installed flash player version 11.9. Went through all three steps, apeared to be a complete install. When trying to use flash player get message to install new version? Can't play any games or watch any video that requires flash player.
I am having the same issue.
It appears that you have only the Flash Player plugin installed; you also need the ActiveX version for Internet Explorer:
