I was trying to make a game work on my laptop and I looked online for help. A site said to uninstall Flash from my Programs and Features menu in the control panel and I did so probably a bit too willingly. The website said to re-install flash from the adobe website and when I tried doing this, the file downloaded, but when i clicked to open it, it brought up the screen that says " Are you sure you want to do this... etc." and when i clicked yes, the program proceeds to do nothing. I checked in the Task Manager and it shows "Adobe Installation Helper(x32)" as a background process. I just spent $100 on this game and I am thoroughly frustrated at my misfortune.
Does this program use the Flash Player ActiveX or the plugin.
The ActiveX comes preinstalled on Windows 8; the plugin installer you can download from http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/current/support/install_flash_player.exe
You may need to restart Windows before running the installer.
