Yes, I can. I have tried figuring that out for like 10 minutes. It works, I have tried it on my school's computers. Anyways, to install the flash player without admin rights. You need a different flash player file. It is a .xpi file. Download: http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get...player-win.xpi

You must use Internet Explorer, and download it. Now, save the files. And now look for the file that you just downloaded, and change it from .xpi to .zip. Now right-click it, and unzip it. In the folder you need to find the following files: NPSWF32.dll and flashplayer.xpt …delete all other files and copy those two. Now, you have to make your Local Settings folder unhidden to add your Flash Player in. So, go to the Start Menu, and Search. Then select "All Files And Folders." Now search Local Settings, and make sure, before you search, you do the following: click "More Advanced Options" Then check "Search hidden files and hidden folders." Then click search. Soon, you should find two of them. Now there should be a couple of them. Look for the one that says: C:\Documents and Settings\Username. Then right click it, and properties. Uncheck hidden, and press apply. Then select apply to subfolders and files. Now open up Local Settings>Application Data>Google>Chrome>Application>your version of google chrome>Plugins. If there is no plugins folder, create it. And paste the two files in. Finally, you have added Flash Player to your Google Chrome. Congratulations!

How do I Log in to mytexasbenefits when I can't install a flash player


If you are a standard or limited(non-administrator) user then installing software is usually not possible, try logging in as an administrator on a different user account and retry installing flash...or...try installing the chrome browser cause it has its own built in flash

Can't watch Youtube videos


Hello,
We are here to try and help you.
Many people experience this because they do not have adobe flash installed on there computer. However you can go to www.youtube.com/html5 and install that. That will work for most pc without the flash installed.
Other issues could be you behind a firewall that prohibits you tube use.
Check with your Network administrator if that might be a issue as well.
Adobe flash can be found at www.adobe.com, download the current flash player and install it. you will need to restart your browser for this to take affect.
Thanks for using fixya.com

I want toopen to have adofe flash player but internet doesnt permit to loaded


The following guide, originally written for Firefox 2, has been used successfully on Firefox 3, Firefox 3.5 and Firefox 3.6. Users of Firefox Portable edition (versions 3, 3.5 and 3.6) also have been successful using this guide.
The Windows computers available at my University permits login only by autenticated users (students) who don't have Administrator access and permissions.
Installing software on those PC is then not possible.
Recently they finally installed Firefox 2 but without the Flash plugins, which is absolutly useful/needed.
I then tryed to install the Flash Player using the "standard" way (click on the missing plugin link then install the plugin..). However without administrator plugins it was not possible to install.
Then I started doing some tests trying to install the plugin manually. Now I have it installed and working perfectly!
This is how I managed to install it without administrator permissions:
  1. Download the XPI archive of the Flash Player Plugin to your hard disk (right click on the download link then "Save link as.."). XPI archives are only ZIP files containing the files used by the plugins. A more updated version of the plugin is also available here.
  2. So you can safely rename the file you just downloaded, called flashplayer-win.xpi, into flashplayer-win.zip (you are changing its extension from .xpi to .zip)
  3. Extract the files in the archive. You can use any program capable of opening .zip files (WinZip, WinRAR or the free and great 7-zip). There are also websites which can uncompress archives: wobzip.org.
  4. Copy the files flashplayer.xpt and NPSWF32.dll to %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Plugins\
    • %APPDATA% is not a real folder. It's an alias. By inserting it in your windows explorer address bar, you'll be redirected to the real folder which holds your applications profiles and settings. The location of this folder depends on various setting that's why we need the alias and not an absolute path.
    • You can open this folder simply choosing "Start ? Run ? Type in %APPDATA% ? OK".
    • In case you don't have a Plugins folder you can create one and place your files there.
  5. Restart Firefox
  6. Enjoy your flash websites!

My widows is VISTA. I am trying to download ADOBE FLASH PLAYER 10. But it is not working now. So, tell me how i can download it. Shihab


Hi.
Here is what I found on the network regarding your problem.
It might help you.

Here's the scenario: you download the latest and greatest version of the Adobe Flash Player. After it finishes installing, you go to a site featuring Flash content and are greeted with a message notifying you that you need to install Flash Player, but didn't you just do that? To properly update your Flash Player, you need to run the installation as Administrator. Follow these steps to properly install Adobe Flash Player:
For Vista (32 bit):
1. Open Computer.
2. Navigate to C:\Windows\System32\.
3. Scroll down and open the Macromed directory.
4. Open the Flash directory.
5. Right-click FlashUtil9b.
6. Select Run as Administrator.
7. When the UAC prompt appears, select Continue.
8. Follow the Flash Player installation wizard.
For Vista (64 bit):
1. Open Computer.
2. Navigate to C:\Windows\SysWOW64\.
3. Scroll down and open the Macromed directory.
4. Open the Flash directory.
5. Right-click FlashUtil9b.
6. Select Run as Administrator.
7. When the UAC prompt appears, select Continue.
8. Follow the Flash Player installation wizard.
Once the wizard completes, Flash Player has been properly installed and will now function properly.

Can't dowm load flash player


If you have problems installing Adobe Flash Player2.gif, follow the troubleshooting steps below. If one step does not correct the problem, move on to the next step. After each step, you may want to restart your machine to ensure that your changes take effect before moving on to the next step.

Uninstall all previous versions
Before you install Flash Player for any Windows browser, uninstall all previous versions. For instructions on removing the player, please see "How to uninstall the Adobe Flash2.gif Player plug-in and ActiveX control"
at this link...
http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/141/tn_14157.html

Note:All applications must be closed before you run the Flash 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 Flash Player are still in memory.

After you have removed previous versions, you are ready to download and/or install Flash Player.
2. Download Adobe Flash Player Flash Player is available for download from the Adobe Flash Player Download Center.
3. Troubleshoot Adobe Flash Player for Internet Explorer Before installing Flash 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 Flash 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 your security level:
  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.
Windows Vista installation failure On some Windows Vista systems Flash Player may be installed, but will not display Flash content. In some cases updating to the latest Flash Player using the included utility can correct the User Account Control settings that cause this problem.
To run the utility, find your installed Flash folder:
  • Right-click C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\FlashUtil9d.exe
    The letter changes with each Flash version, so may be "FlashUtilb.exe" or "FlashUtile.exe"
  • Select "Run as Administrator"
  • Follow the steps to complete the Flash Player installation
  • Restart your computer
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 NT, 2000, XP, or Vista you may not be able to install Flash Player successfully. Administrative privileges are required for the Windows system registry and for the C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash folder
