    Can't install debug version of flash player


      I have the Design Premium CS5 suite installed on the laptop I am using, which I have rented from my uni as my own was unstable.


      I have got admin rights, and I installed Flash Builder 4.


      When I tried to debug code, I got the following error [IMG]http://i52.tinypic.com/hu3w3r.png[/IMG].


      So I followed the link on the error message and downloaded from [url]http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html[/url].  I downloaded the Windows Flash Player 10.3 ActiveX control content debugger (for IE) (EXE, 3.22MB)


      Even after running it, the debug won't work and I can't view the image the sample code is supposed to display.  Is there a better version?


      I'm running a laptop with Vista.  I saw someone had success with installing safari and chrome during my searches for a solution.  I usually run firefox.  I have installed both safari and chrome, but don't see how this can help me yet.


      I found the following solution on this site: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/831/cpsid_83106.html, but I can't find the INSTALL_DIRECTORY on this laptop.  The CS5 is installed as follows: [IMG]http://i52.tinypic.com/1zcl1g2.jpg[/IMG].  If I right click on Flash, I can't see  how to select a player or to even see which player it is set for.


      I also found a page on this site which checks what version of flash you have, and I have 10,3,181,34 with no debug.  I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling a debug version with no success.


      I am new to developing as it is for a project.  I'm creating an Augmented Reality app to display on my website, with a downloadable marker.  Is there a way to continue with developing but not using the debug function?


      If you can help I'd be very grateful.
