Adobe/ActiveX issue Every time I try to download Adobe flash, the download begins, but always fails to install. The error messeage tells me to go to adobe.com/tn_19166, this does not install either. I can see the video, but it gets stuck before completion.

    Exactly as Raedez describes, but the links in the response don't work for me.

  • Raedez Mar 04, 2008

    It was helpful, however, the problem comes when I try to save the standalone installer to my computer. I can see the red blocked 'F', and the green line video on my screen, but the installation stalls there, and goes no further. Another box pops up, asking to install an activeX control. Then a message that says 'failed to install, see adobe/tn_19166.' I even get an error message when trying to install this.

    I am still having the same problem. Even as I am emailing this, the Falsh movie is on my screen, but will not go to completion. I cannot view most videos online with it. I don't know why all of a sudden it does not work onmy system, because I had no problem for years. Thanks, Raedez

First of all, go here and download the Flash uninstaller (and save to your computer).

next go here and download the standalone installer (and save to your computer).

Close ALL browsers.

Run the uninstaller to remove any old (possibly corrupted versions) and then run the installer.

Hopefully this will solve your problem.

    I've just had another look at this. It would appear that you get a different version of the page using Internet Explorer. (I checked it using Firefox)

    Try this link.

    http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/fla...

    You should get a pop-up box - Select the 'Save' option. This should allow you to save the standalone installer.

    Let me know how you get on.

I'm trying to download Adobe Flash Player. I am unable to complete download as I get an error reading The ActiveX Control for Flash Player could not be registered. Unsure what this means or how to fix it....


Hello brettashepe, once the "Download of the {Adobe Flash Player} begin!"
"Observe a 'message'!
The message may 'appear as a "Pop-up" in a small area of the 'upper screen'.
"Install [Active X] Software!"
There may also be a !Warning: To the "Downloading of "Active X" on the computer.
This is a "Trusted-Site; so its safe to "Download the Software."
Try [Downloading Adobe Flash Player] from this "Website."
Attention!: If you are 'still' having trouble "Downloading the [AFP]?
Try (1) from a {Previous Version} ie. Adobe Flash Player

!Important: "Take a 'moment to rate the help', so I can get 'credit' for the work.

Thank you!" - paul7of9

Is your PC running with Win XP with Service Pack 2 or higher? Which browser do you use ( Internet explorer or Mozilla Firefox) 
Check out the Add Remove Panel for the Latest installation of  
1. Adobe Flash Player ActiveX 
2. Adobe Flash Player Plugin

3. Adove Shockwave Player 11 

Download it from this weblink: Flash Player 

Also check this update for Microsoft

You need to uninstall Java and Adobe Flash Component from PC.

First, it is better to run in "Safe mode with Networking"; by pressing F8 key during Bootup.

After then, Uninstall Java, Then uninstall Adobe Flash component from the control Panel, then reboot PC. 
Let me know after this if you are able to download and install the latest version of Java and Flash plugin from the link given: 
Java Plugin 
Flash Player . 
And then reboot PC. 
Let me know the status after it.

Could someone please tell me why I can't install adobe flash player 9 on an Acer Aspire T180-0A7Z? I keep being told that installation is complete, however when I go to play a video, it asks me to...


  1. Restart: In some situations, Windows or Internet Explorer needs to be restarted in order to complete an update. Restart your machine, and test Flash Player before moving to Step 2.
  2. Reinstall: Refer to the steps in Try this first: How to fix almost all Flash Player issues.
  3. Repair the browser: The next most common cause of problems is an error with the browser. Often a browser upgrade or changes to the browser may require a browser repair and reinstallation of Flash Player.

    To repair Internet Explorer: Choose Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs. Choose the browser from the list of programs, click Change/Remove, and choose the Repair option. Restart after repairing the browser, and follow steps in Try this first: How to fix almost all Flash Player issues to reinstall Flash Player again. If Internet Explorer does not appear on the Add/Remove list, Repair is not an option, and you should move on to the next step.

    Other browsers: Follow the steps above to see if your browser has a Repair option; if it does, repair it. If your browser (such as Netscape) does not have a Repair option, you must reinstall the browser in order to repair it. Try Steps 4 through 7 first before moving on to Step 8 to reinstall the browser.
  4. Security level: Your Internet Explorer security level may be set to High or a custom level which does not allow viewing of ActiveX controls.

    To view your Security level, from within Internet Explorer, choose Tools > Internet Options, and in the Security tab, choose Internet.

    Though your browser security settings should be chosen by you or your system administrator, the Medium: Default Level will allow you to view Flash content. For any Custom Level, ensure that both "Download Signed ActiveX controls" and "Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins" are not disabled. (Enable or Prompt will work).
  5. Permissions: Your permissions may not allow you to install ActiveX controls or plug-ins. If this is a possibility, refer to Permissions can affect installing Adobe Flash Player for more information.
  6. Update your video drivers: This step is especially important if you experience a freeze or crash when installing or using Flash Player. Right-click on your Desktop and choose Properties > Settings > Advanced > Adapter to view the manufacturer's name. Refer to the manufacturer's website to download drivers or for assistance with installing the latest drivers.
  7. Reinstall the browser: Download and install the latest version from your browser manufacturer's website. Download and install the latest Flash Player from the Flash Player Download Center.

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.
