Close your Internet Explorer broswer and it should pass with no problem.
I closed browser...it gets to about 90% install and says..." You do not have privledges to install." and then it stops.
Are you sure that your account have Administrator privilèges?
How do I check...I can check and get back to you.
I looked at user accounts..I am listed as administrator.
Maybe you should check with your IT departement, to see if you really have all the rights.
I am the only user on the computer..this is my home computer.
If you have an administrative account and all the applications that might keep Flash Player in-use (Internet Explorer and applications that might embed an Internet Explorer instance that uses Flash), then you're getting permission problems because either registry entries or permissions on the filesystem are corrupt.
I'd start with confirming that the filesystem is in a good state and repairing any issues there:
Then I'd try running the uninstaller again, rebooting, then running the installer.
You might also consider booting into Safe Mode for that process to ensure that nothing that's keeping Flash in-use is getting loaded during startup:
First off, thank you for your help...seems like an issue no one wants to tackle.
I ran the check hard disk as you suggested, did not find anything..it went through all the steps.
Attempted to install again....same result.
I tried also in Safe Mode, even tried deleting the macromedia file folders....unable to do this.
I noted that both these file folders ( System32/macromedia and SystemWOW64/macromedia) have a small icon next to the folder in Windows Explorer. I would suppose this has some point of denying entry/alteration/installation, etc. to these folders.
Thanks again.....just a tough one to figure out...appreciate your help and taking time!!! Next move?
Re-read your instructions.....ran the hard drive checker program again....checked both boxes.
Re started computer....ran the uninstall program
Installed the MSI installation of Flash 15.
Works fine.....THANK YOU !!! Absolutely fantastic !!! Just guessing it must have been some error that you mentioned above!!!!
