My Adobe Flash Player (AFP) is gone and I cannot reinstall it. I run Win 7 and IE10. I was fine until 3 days ago. The AFP support page tells me I do not have AFP, yet it is on my "uninstall programs" list. I uninstall AFP, restart, install AFP (using save-run with no error messages), restart, and check the AFP support page to be told that I do not have AFP. I have repeated this process several times to no avail. I notice that Adobe Reader 11 and my Adobe Elements are located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\ but AFP is not there. Please help! Thank you. (PS: Shockwave Flash Object is enabled for both 32-bit and 64-bit.)
Flash Player is a browser plugin, not an executable program, and is therefore not installed under Program Files.
If you have Shockwave Flash enabled, that means it is installed. Perhaps you have ActiveX Filtering on? See http://forums.adobe.com/thread/867968
Pat - thank you! After I turned off ActiveX Filtering, I got an "action list not found" error, but then there was a link to "download direct from IE", or something like that, and now I am all set. Wish I knew how this just came out of the blue, however, you certainly have turned my frown upside down! Thanks very much for giving your time to this forum.
