    flash player installed, activated and yet not found?




      i got the newest version of flash player installed succsessfully. The tests on the support sites also say: it is installed.

      The samsung monitor software CD i want to install, tells me afterwards, adobe flash player is not installed.

      Indeed i cannot find it anywhere, neither under programs nor under programs x86.

      And yet: showing all programs under system control for to deinstal it: here it exists, but i cannot do anything without to deinstal.


      Thank you for clearing this mystery.

          Flash Player is saved to the following location:

          • 32-bit: C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash
          • 64-bit: C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash AND C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash


          For Windows, there are 3 different player types:  ActiveX Control for IE, NPAPI for firefox and other NPAPI browsers, and PPAPI for Chrome and Chromium-based browsers.  I'm not familiar with the software you are attempting to install, however, most apps use the ActiveX Control.  Note that if your operating system is Windows 8 and above Microsoft embeds Flash Player ActiveX Control in the browser and there is on other installer for Flash Player ActiveX Control on these operating systems.
