    Adobe flash player installation

    old gray mare

      We installed The flash player on my computer. It said it was successfully installed. However we cannot use it. There is no icon and not under the start menu. It shows under control panel installed program.  What are we doing wrong. We are using Windows vista.

          You can launch the player in a "stand alone" mode but unless you have some Flash content that you would like to view it may not be of use to you.  Think of the Flash Player as your Blu-Ray or DVD player which needs a DVD to provide you with content.  If you would like to take a look at some great websites that feature Flash content at it's best, go to the Customer Showcase under the Flash section.

            Do you mean installing the activex plugin for IE? I had this problem this week - it would successfully install from the download page but did not actually run any flash.

            I downloaded standalone install and run that - now works. Search google for install_flash_player _10_ activex and you will several sites where it can be downloaded from (could not find it on adobe site but it must be there).
