I am trying to install (have installed it actually in the sense that the program shows up when I look at Control Panel/Uninstall a Program) "Adobe Flash Player 18 Active." I just can't get it ever to work, though it certainly did for years on this Windows 7 PC. The original "Adobe Flash Plugin 10" that came with this desktop when I bought it in 2010 is still there I see when I look at "Uninstall a Program."
When I go to "Tools/Manage Add-ons," as instructed on the link you provided, it does say that AFP is enabled.
What if I simply uninstalled the two AFP programs I mentioned through Control Panel and then tried to download the latest version of AFP again?
Thanks for your help,
Yes, uninstall both, then install the latest Flash Player version(s) again. Note that Windows has two different plugins:
- the ActiveX plugin for Internet Explorer
- the NPAPI plugin for other browsers like Firefox
Okay, I uninstalled both version of Adobe Flash Player on my desktop, and then installed the ActiveX plugin again. Alas, it still doesn't work.
Could malware be the problem? I run McAfee every week and it hasn't detected anything in many, many months.
Please be a little bit more detailed than just "doesn't work". Is it still the installation that fails, as in your original post?
The installation of AFP has never failed no matter how many times I install it. It's just that afterwards AFP refuses to work anymore unlike how it did for years. Sorry if I didn't make that clear.
I just clipped and added three pages from my computer that illustrate the status of my AFP. There has been no change in these three places since AFP stopped working.
