I wish I knew, radiosjon. See my thread 'Flash Player 11 won't install, XP' to see what I did, all to no avail. I hope someone can find the answer.
Please uninstall your provise verion Flash Player following http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/uninstall-flash-player-windows.htm
then download latest Flash player via http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
hope it works on you computer
I ran the uninstall program. I then tried to install flash program and got the same message "program failed to register". each time it failed to install I ran the uninstall program and it said that it did uninstall the flash program.
Hi radiosjon, Please see below what I did, copied from my original thread. It's all working well now. I hope the following will help.....

Well.... Today was Eureka day. I finally got past the Active x failing to register by downloading Microsoft Download manager and then the .msi version of the FP 11 installer. Follow the links in the following reply to someone else to get to the right file to download (for my problem, anyway). :-

I Just found the answer long awaited for and it is in the shortcuts listed beside this question posted on the right and I will put the link here for whoever runs in similar situation.
It will bring you to download the full active X version afterwhat you can download the normal latest flash player version and it will register correctly.
Well, the second suggestion in the answers you'll see on the link was the one that worked. Many thanks to all who helped. Yippee!
went to adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distributions.html. which then tride to install flashplayer 11 activex. error msg 1722 did not load all programs. Why is this so hard?
went to adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distributions.html
That page does not exist; the correct URL is http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distribution3.html
Did you run the MSI installer? Can you post a screenshot of the error you get?
Please provide the FlashInstall.log file in C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash.
