Installing Macromedia Flash Player.

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Trevor Jowett, Feb 15, 2007.

  1. I cannot load Macromedia Flash Player using Vista. I get the message it
    has loaded successfully , but it hasn't. I also downloaded and save the
    file for subsequent installation. It seemed to load, but again without
    success. My securiuty level is set to default. Has anybody else
    encountered this problem- and more helpfully found a solution?

    Thanks in antication of any help.

  2. I had a similar problem. You need Adobe Flash Player V9. You can download an
    installer version here at

    FYI, I noticed that if I turned off protected mode in internet explorer, the
    Adobe website could download the flash player, otherwise it would just sit
    there, and no flash or web streaming content would play.

    I had the same problem as you. I kept getting the Flash download
    window telling me that I had installed Flash successfully but when I
    went to a site that wanted Flash I was told it wasn't there and to
    download it! Catch 22. I tried changing every setting that I could
    think of but to no avail but then read a few hints on various web

    To cut a long story short, I uninstalled Flash using the utility on
    the Adobe web site and then reinstalled it from the web link and
    suddenly everything worked properly. Don't ask me why but that was
    the answer for me.
