I can't download Flashplayer

One time I had uninstalled my flash player so i could install flashplayer 7, when I found that Flash 7 was useless, I uninstalled it and tried to get Flash 9. It used to be where if I went to, and I tried to download Flash Player 9 it would just keep saying that it had an error and that I needed to try again. But this time when I go to download Flash Player 9, it will just sit there and do nothing. I even went to sleep and when I came back there was no difference. So I tried to find a different way to download Flash 9, I went to a whole lot of sites that make me get Flash 9 differently, everytime I try them out, the websites I go to just say that I still don't have Flash Player. I need a different way of getting Flash that will actually work. Can anybody help me?

Re: I can't download Flashplayer

The problem that I had was that the system directory that Flash requires to download to (c:\windows\system32\Macromed) was read-only, and none of the Windoze utliities would allow this to be corrected (SubInAcl does not work for this apparently).

The solution I finally found was to use the Flash Developers' Site archive, download an older version, which was able to create the new Flash subdirectory; mysteriously, the new version was not able to do this.

Seems to be working now, even with sites that 'require' version 9.
(or whatever the latest is).

I'm sure that I do not know or understand some/most of the details of this install, but the solution did not seem to involve repair of the Registry, which I had done earlier in futile attempts to get up and running.

Sounds like you may have some registry errors, download a registry repair utility, such as Registry Mechanic or PC Pitstop Optimize.
