Hi, the first thing I would need to know is what Flash Player files are actually Installed. Let's take one computer at a time.
As you have listed them: The first one is #1, #2, #3 in that order please.
Laptop: Vista/32 bit
Laptop: Vista/32 bit
Desktop: Windows 7/64 bit
#1. Go to C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash Open Flash and post back all files listed. Right click on the NPSWF files and then click on Properties in order to obtain the version numbers. Then Using FF, check in the plugins for the Shockwave Flash and let me know what version is listed.
What Anti-Virus do you use and are there any AV related addons/plugins/extensions installed? (#1 only)
I'm not exactly sure how to get to those files, but laptop #1 would be the one where I uninstalled and can't reinstall anyway. That's my biggest problem. It goes through the whole process.. downloading and all, says it's installed, but when FF restarts, I'm informed that I need to install a missing plugin. I have Microsoft Security Essentials and I've tried it twice with the real time protection turned off and it hasn't helped. FF add-ons shows that the DLM (getPlusPlus) is installed, but no Flash.
Hi, Go to Start, Control Panel and either Add/Remove or Programs and Features and let me know if a DLM(download manager) and or a getplus or getplusplus is listed.
So in the plugins there is no Shockwave Flash. Now since there is getPlusPlus there, check in the addons and the extensions to see if there is a DLM Control or a get_atlcom Class.
Let me know on the above.
I've had success! I downloaded the installer straight to the desktop and went from there. It installed easily. Previously, I had tried to do it from FF downloads. My fault. Still doesn't explain why flash won't update or install the regular way though..
Wouldn't it be a good idea now to do the same thing with the other two computers?
Hi, well great. For some reason depending on where you tried to Install FP with FF from it gets tangled up with that DLM and their add ons. It is not needed and that is why I suggest to use the Manual Installers instead. Why FF still uses it in their FP instructions, I don't know. Glad it worked for you.
Well if you used the same Installer procedure for the other two computers, then I don't see why not use what just worked on #1. I'm sure I would.
Thanks for posting back. I don't know if you want the 64bit beta or not. If you don't just use the 32bit browser to Install the 10.1.85.3.
