What should I do when the flash player won't install?


Answer by  Elis (150)

Make sure that all of your web browsers are closed and try again. If it still won't work, reboot the computer and try again. At this point if it's still not working you should look for any sign of specific error messages and search the Macromedia website for help.

Try uninstalling older version (if any), reboot your computer and then try again, if this doesn't work check for the error message you get and google it


Answer by  BBBrian (282)

Document the error if you are getting one, and do a search. You can also try completely uninstalling the flash player through Add/Remove programs.

If you're trying to install via a browser (like firefox) try downloading the install file from adobe's website. If that still doesn't work then try a different browser (like internet explorer or google chrome) if it works in one and not the other, try reinstalling the browser you are using. Best of luck.

Try a different browser. Internet Explorer is currently having issues installing Flash if you're running a 64-bit browser, like you'd probably be doing in Vista or Windows 7. Flash is currently only for 32-bit browsers, so try Firefox or Google Chrome for now and see if that helps.

First see if the version of the player is compatable with your system and to make sure all of the system requirements are met. You may need to clear your cookies and history to improive your computer speed. If that does not work you may need to choose another verison of the flsash player.

Your system is getting old can you set your system to a previous date so some original settings will be restored, this might help. There are some pc fixes on the internet which might help, they are free to download. As computers get old they do lose data and maybe a new computer might have to be the answer.

De- and Reinstall Adobes Flash Player ActiveX and PlugIn components. If this does not help, reinstall them a second time and try an older installer. The older version will afterwards be updated during the use of flash. There are special pages on the web that hold old software versions.
