I am having a problem with Flash in IE 11 / Win 8.1. I understand it is embedded. But I keep getting the window at the bottom of the screen saying this webpage wants to run the following add-on 'Adobe Flash Player' from 'Microsoft Windows Third Party Application Component....' I click allow and the message keeps coming back. On top of this, Flash will not work.
I have a feeling there is something corrupted. I have tried to download an update (kb3004150) and it says I already have this on my system. I also have tried to install it manually using the install_flash_player_ax.exe file, but to no avail.
What do I need to do to fix this and why aren't there other options on Adobe's site?
What exactly means "will not work"?
Adjusting the ActiveX Filtering settings should help you resolve those "Do you want to allow Flash Player" prompts:
You can try to work around these issues by using Compatibility View:
If that is too inconvenient, using Google Chrome may be a preferable alternative.
