I recently updated Flash Player on my Father-in-laws Desktop.
It has Windows XP and uses IE 9
I updated the Flashplayer to version 11.9.900.117.
It looked like it installed fine. No problems.
He informed me at the weekend that when he goes into Google Maps Street View it comes up with an error saying
To use street view, you need Adobe Flash Player version 10 or newer.
Get the latest Flash Player.
Also some videos in Youtube don't work.
I checked the setup on my desktop. It has Windows Vista and uses IE 9. It has the same problem.
My laptop with Windows 8 works fine.
When I go onto the flash player help and run the check, it says Flash Version is not installed.
In Manage Add-ons in tools it shows that Shockwave Flash Object is Disabled. When I go to enable it I can't. Enable and Disable buttons are greyed out
I've done several clean installs.
I've also deleted the files manually from Windows/System 32
I've deleted the cache RUN %appdata%\Adobe and RUN appdata%\Macromedia
I've ensured the ActiveX Filtering isn't ticked in Tools - Safety
I've disabled AntiVirus (Avast)
I've turned off Windows Firewall
I've tried various setting changes in Security - Trusted sites
I uninstalled and tried Flashplayer version 10.3 from the archive last night to no avail. Add-on still greyed out and disabled
I've followed everything in http://forums.adobe.com/message/5794879#5794879
I then had another Add On Shockwave but after reboot it disappeared. All seemed the same but when I went back into Google maps it asked if I wanted ActiveX to run and I said yes. Maybe I should have said no.
I've tried http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/find-version-flash-player.html but only see a blank box.
In Control Panel it shows that ActiveX version and Plugin version are 11.9.900.117. but I don't think they actually are installed properly.
Its getting frustrating. I thought I'd have cracked it by now.
No replies so far then. . . .
Just found this so I'll try this tonight. .

Let's start by first doing a clean install of Flash player, then if it still occurs let's see if we can try fixing permissions.
Still not fixed.
Installed Google Chrome.
Sounds a bit suspect to me though. It used to work with IE 9 prior to the last flash upgrade and now it doesn't but it does work with Google Chrome (which is advised to be installed) !!
