Archived from groups: microsoft>public>internetexplorer>general, others (more info?)

I am having trouble installing Adobe Flash Player 10. I have run the
uninstaller, rebooted, attempted to install again, and every other idea I
could think of. Several of the sites I found when searching for help
mentioned stuff about the Windows Registry be a cause of problems when
installing Flash, and there were links to several sites that offered
downloadable utilities that supposedly fix these. However, I would like to
know what exactly the problems in the Registry are, because I don't
completely trust free Registry utilities (not to mention some of them
weren't as "free" as they say they are). Can somebody help me here? Thanks.

Hello, I have always had problems installing from the Adobe site.
First download and save file from another site:
http://www.filehippo.com/download_flashplayer_ie/
Then remove old file from Add/Remove, remove any links,folders etc.
Install the file you downloaded and saved, by double clicking on the file.
This always works for me, hope it works for you.
take care.

forum.

Unfortunately, it is still not working for me. I didn't mention it in any of
my previous postings, because I thought it was specific to the site I am
visiting that uses the Flash Player, but the error I recieve says:

Error: Unexpected call to method or property access.

Also, I thought I had the settings in IE correct, but maybe I missed one. If
possible, could you tell me the settings that are required to be set to a
certain value? Thanks.

Does your Flash work here?
http://www.adobe.com/products/flash/about/

The Flash Player settings manager page
http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager02.html


Security settings required for Adobe's Flash Player:

Binary and script behaviors --> enable
Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins --> enable
Script ActiveX controls marked safe for scripting* --> enable
Active scripting --> enable

Yes, I see the animated white f in the red square and the text "Adobe Flash
Player successfully installed."

> The Flash Player settings manager page
> http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager02.html
I visited the settings manager page, and all the settings looked correct. I
also cleared the list of sites I have visited, since I don't use a camera or
microphone anyway.

My security settings in IE are (and have been) what you mentioned. However,
I am still unable to get it to work. Any other ideas? Thanks.

They have user forums which work similar to newsgroups.
Actually I guess they work similar to other vendors' forums
because there is occasional input from what appears to be
Adobe staff too.

Another option I think would be one of the Flash debug versions.
However, I don't know exactly what they do; I would just assume
that they may have better diagnostics for those who are interested
in getting better clues about their problem symptoms. ; )


Good luck

Thanks for this suggestion. For hours I have done everything in the
book to get Adobe 10 to install on IE with no luck. I came across your
suggestion, tried it and it worked LIKE A CHARM. Many Thanks for the
post.and a successful, simple solution.
