What does "I can get the 1.0 MB installer to load but not the 17.2 MB program" mean (mainly the second part)? What happens when you try to launch the offline installer (the 17.2 MB)? Including screenshots is very helpful.
It seems like there are two downloads, a 1.0 MB installer
(installflashplayer16x32_mssd_aaa_aih.exe) and the main (?) program of 17.3
MB. There seems to be no issue w/ the installer, but the main program will
only install 34%, 38%, once all the way to 49%. Then there's a message
that something is attempting to re-connect---but it never does.
Now that I'm working w/ someone who knows what they're doing, the
process goes like clockwork when I try to get a screen shot. Cancel the
emergency, secure from battle stations.
Thanks anyway. I suspect I'll be back next time there's an update.
The online installer (about 1.2 MB in size) downloads and installs Flash Player silently. The offline installer (17.3 MB) is the full installer. I'm a bit confused by your comment "...but the main program will
only install 34%, 38%, once all the way to 49%. Then there's a message that something is attempting to re-connect---but it never does." The offline does not attempt to make any connection to download anything as it already contains everything it needs. Can you confirm if the 'attempt to re-connect' error coming from the online installer?
