I am running Windows 8.1 64 bit. Whenever I try to view something that requires flash player I get a message that Flash player is not installed, or it needs to be updated.
I've explored the flash player help site and tried everything there. When I use the utility to check if flash player is installed, it tells me that flash is disabled. But if I go to Settings/Manage Add-ons/Toolbars and Extensions, it shows that Shockwave Flash Object - and all other Adobe Add-ons - are enabled. Just for the heck of it I disabled and re-enabled Shockwave Flash Object, but no change.
If I try to reinstall Flash Player, the installation stops because the installation program recognizes the most current version is installed.
What else can I do to diagnose the problem and fix it?
Thanks for any help you can provide.
Do you have ActiveX Filtering enabled, by any chance?
