    Flash Player 11 on Internet Explorer 6 ?

    Adnan Doric Level 1

      Hello,

       

      I cannot install Flash Player 11 in IE6, a big part of our user base are unfortunately still on IE6 and our products targets Flash Player 11.

       

      What can we do about it without dumbing down our app?

       

      Thank you in advance

          Please do the following.

           

          1. Open IE6, go to Tools and then Manage Add-ons.
          2. Change the menu dropdown (on the left) to "All Addons", then scroll down to Adobe (if it's there) and then check the version number. The current version is 11.1.102.55 (See screenshot)
          3. If it's not listed, or if it's a different version, download this uninstaller, but choose to Save it (doesn't matter where). Do not choose "Run". http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/current/uninstall_flash_player_32bit.exe
          4. After you save the file, close IE.
          5. Run the uninstaller (even if Flash is not listed in Manage Add-ons) and then reboot.
          6. Next, go to: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ and when you see the prompt, choose "Run" to install it immediately. Oh, and uncheck any third party installation options like the Google Toolbar / McAfee. You can install those any time.
          7. Go back to Manage Add-ons and confirm that 11.1.102.55 has been installed.
