That sounds a bit excessive to me - formatting your system just because you get an error message from the Flash Player install!
- what is your OS?
- what is your browser?
- from where did you download Flash Player?
I reformatted due to a virus, not due to Adobe Flash player...
Im running Windows Vista
Google Chrome is the browser
I'm having the same trouble -- Adobe Flash Player stopped working on my computer (a Dell laptop running Windows XP Professional) AND on my girlfriend's Mac around the same time. Besides sharing the same wireless signal, there's no connection between our machines.
Neither of us have been able to re-install Flash, and I've tried having Firefox do it automatically (usually the easiest step), tried having the Adobe download manager do it (tells me there is a GUI error), and also have tried downloading the standalone executable file, which I can save to my desktop, but won't run -- I get the same NSIS error message as in the 1st post.
I would think this had something to do with our wireless network, due to the otherwise amazing coincidence of both our machines having the same problem simultaneously, but I was still unable to get Flash while at work, on a different network.
I'm confused and frustrated. Now, anytime I try to view a webpage containing Flash animation, I mostly get lines of HTML code -- and on her Mac, that's basically all that she gets!
Can anyone shed some light on this for me? I've perused these forums as much as I can, and I've run out of ideas. Thanks very much in advance!
Yes, I have downloaded that installer -- when I double-click to run the file, I get the NSIS error message.
It's amazing how many websites I frequently visit that use Flash, that I cannot access right now!
Any other ideas? Thanks for your help.
