1) Make sure your Adobe Flash Player is up to date,

http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

[ Advise click on the small square to the left of -
Yes, install McAfee Security Scan Plus - optional
,and remove the green checkmark. THEN click on Download now ]

Be advised though, sometimes the new Adobe Flash Player download, will not automatically remove the old Adobe Flash Player version that is installed; and the Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller Tool is needed.

http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html

Go to the bottom of this page. Under the bold subheading -
Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller - click on the blue - Tech Note.

On the following page go down to the subheading -
1. Download the uninstaller for Flash Player -
,and click on - uninstaller - in blue. (674 KB)

In the small window that comes up click on Save File.

Close all internet windows.

In the small download window that comes up next, allow the file to fully download, then DOUBLE-click right on the file name.

When you are finished with the Adobe Flash Player uninstaller, close all windows, restart the computer.
Now go back to Adobe Flash Player Support, and download the new Adobe Flash Player.


2) Make sure your Java is up to date,

http://www.java.com/en/

3) Sometimes I have found, that you have to click on Pause for the video, and allow it to download for a bit, then click on Play.

I already install the adobe flash player, but still i cant play my games in facebook.


Perhaps the newest version of Adobe Flash Player isn't installed.

Sometimes you have to use the Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller, then download, and install the newest version of Adobe Flash Player.
.
Adobe Flash Player may not automatically remove the old version. If the old version isn't removed, the new version won't install.

This is Adobe Support, (Adobe Support Center), and the download page for the Uninstaller,

http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/141/tn_14157.html

On line 1 click on the blue - uninstall_flash_player.exe (229KB)

In the small box that comes up click on Save File.

Now in the other small window that comes up look at the heading at the top.
This is where the file will be downloaded to.
Write it down.

It may have Desktop, or My Documents, or Downloads in the heading.
(Desktop, Documents, and Downloads for Vista, and Win7)

1) If it has Desktop in the heading the file will be on your desktop screen.

2) If it has My Documents in the heading, click on Start, then click on My Documents.

3) If it has Downloads in the heading, click on Start, click on My Documents, double-click on Downloads.

When you see the file name - uninstall_flash_player.exe - double-click right on it.
Follow the simple instructions of the Installation Wizard.
(Just click on Next, Next, and Finish)

When you are done restart your computer.
Now go back to Adobe, and download the newest version of Adobe Flash Player.

http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

After you have installed the newest version restart your computer if it does not state so.

Tried both solutions adobe flash player 10 still failed to register


You may need the latest Java Updates. Go to www.sun.com and download the latest Java Console to your computer. After installation, try to download Adobe Flash Player again. If it does not work then your operating system may not be compatiable with Adobe Flash Player 10. You may need to download an older version such as Adobe Flash Player 9.

You can find older versions of Adobe Flash Player such as 9 on www.cnet.com type in the search field (adobe flash player 9). After the options show up, choose the file to download and install.

Be sure to check your available memory and system speed which are also factors when installing flash software.

I am trying to download the latest version of adobe adobe flash player onto my macbook pro OS X but it is never being completely downloaded. Itried the version 9 of adobe and worked but not with version...


sometimes with notebooks etc the manufacturer puts administrator restrictions to stop you installing active x, if the macbook is working ok with version 9 I suggest you keep using that version, however if you wish to install version 10 go to the adobe site and ask for assistance or read the troubleshooting guides, but they will probably tell you the same as I have.

I have Flash 6 player and it was not playing swf files so I downloaded the 9 player. When I try to play flash files my computer still says it is using the 6 version player. How do I get the PC to recoginze...


Hey jlriley45,

In some instances, programs will install themselves without removing or updating information from previous versions that were already installed on a computer. To avoid such a problem, it is generally recommended that users uninstall these previous versions before installing the new one.

In order to uninstall Flash Player 6, there are a couple of things that you can do. First, Adobe has developed an uninstaller program that you can download from their main support website:

http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=tn_14157&sliceId=1

You'll want to make sure that you quit all other programs before running the uninstaller, as well as make sure that you do not have an anti-virus/anti-spyware program running in the background. Run the program, and follow the step-by-step instructions that appear on your screen.

Once this is done, you may also wish to check the Installed Programs list for your computer. This can typically be accessed in most versions of Windows by clicking on the "Start" bar on your desktop, choosing "Settings," then "Control Panel." After you're in the control panel, double-click on the option that says "Add/Remove Programs" to open the list of currently installed programs. If Flash Player still appears in this menu, highlight it and click on the "Remove" option to the right of the program name.

After you've uninstalled the program you should be able to download and install Flash Player 9 with minimal fuss. However, in the event that you still cannot get the program to function correctly, you may wish to visit Adobe's product support site for more information:

http://www.adobe.com/support/

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Flash 9 freezes after 1st. video plays on The Fan.


Lets Start from here:

Before you install Shockwave Player for any Windows browser, uninstall all previous versions.
In order to remove the Shockwave player, simply use the file UNWISE.EXE located in C:\WINDOWS\system32\Adobe\Shockwave 11. Windows users can also use the Add/Remove programs located in the Windows control panel. This will remove the Shockwave 10 player
For the Shockwave 8 and 8.5 there is an uninstaller available from the Web Players page.
Note: All applications must be closed before you run the Shockwave Player uninstaller. Quit all running applications, including all Internet Explorer or other browser windows, and all Instant Messenger clients. Check the Windows system tray carefully to make certain no applications which might possibly use Shockwave Player are still in memory.
After you have removed previous versions, you are ready to download and/or install Shockwave Player.

Before installing Shockwave Player, please check the following browser settings:
Internet Explorer ActiveX settings

Browser security settings should be chosen by you or by your system administrator. For single users who do not have an administrator, the Medium: Default Level allows you to view Shockwave content. For any Custom Level, ensure that both the "Download Signed ActiveX controls" and "Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins" options are set to "Prompt".

To change security level in Internet Explorer:

1. Open Internet Explorer.
2. Choose Tools > Internet Options.
3. Select the Security tab.
4. Select Custom Level.
5. Find the section "ActiveX controls and plug-ins".
6. Set ' Download Signed ActiveX Controls' to Prompt.
7. Set 'Run ActiveX Controls And Plug-ins' to Prompt.

If you are having trouble installing, make sure that your Internet Explorer security level is not set to High or to a custom level that does not allow viewing of ActiveX controls.
Computer user permissions

User permissions determine whether or not you are allowed to install ActiveX controls or plug-ins. If you don't have Administrator access to Windows XP SP2, or Vista you may not be able to install Shockwave Player successfully. Administrative privileges are required for the Windows system registry and for the C:\WINDOWS\system32\Adobe\Shockwave folder.
If the ActiveX Control for Shockwave Player fails to install, download the executable installer.

If the information above has not resolved the issue, download the executable Shockwave Player installer here:

* Download and latest Shockwave Player Installer.

Save this installer to your desktop, close out all applications, and run the installer. This may help if you are having trouble with the ActiveX installation from Adobe.com. To confirm that Shockwave Player has installed successfully, please click here. The two movies will show if you have Flash and Shockwave Players installed. The version numbers of the both Players will be displayed in the test movie.
