The flashplayer is installed on the computer but whatever programme I gointo theprompt says "installflash player"


Hello,
You may have to go into the control panel and select add / remove programs (xp) or programs and settings (vista /7). Select Adobe Flash and remove it. Open your browser to http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions/ and reinstall the player. Select your operating system and in the version selection, highlight the newest version for the web browser you are using. If you aren't using a browser listed, select the 'other' version.
If you still get those errors after reinstalling flash, you may have the add-ons disabled in your browser. You can enable / disable browser plugins in Internet explorer:
Open Tools > Manage Add-ons Make sure that for Add-on Types the Toolbars and Extensions option is selected Make sure that Show the Currently loaded add-ons option is selected Select the flash item and if it shows disabled, enable it.
Regards, Chris

I'm running windows 7 on a Toshiba L455 and I keep getting a prompt that says; can not find "flash.ocx"


Flash is a programming language that many publishers use to create animations, games, and interactive programs for the web. Flash is also used for programs run locally on a users computer. To use these Flash based programs and web applets, the end-user must have Flash Player installed. One component of Flash Player is a file called "flash.ocx." If this file is missing or damaged, you may get an error message.

There seems to be two root causes of this error. A description and solution for each follows:

  • You receive the error message "Cannot find the file flash.ocx" every time you start your computer or each time you open your web browser (such as Internet Explorer). This is usually the result of a missing "flash.ocx" file caused by an incomplete installation of Flash. Here's how to remedy the problem:
    1. Download the Flash Player uninstallrom Macromedia. Save it somewhere convenient.
    2. Run the downloaded program and allow it to finish.
    3. Once the uninstall completes, restart your computer.
    4. Visit the Flash Player website and download/install the latest Flash Player version.
    5. That's it!
  • You receive the error message "Cannot find the file flash.ocx" at seemingly random intervals or when starting a specific program (other than your web browser). First, perform steps 1-4 of the previous solution. This will insure you have the latest version of Flash Player installed. If you still receive the error message, continue with the steps below:
    1. Navigate to the folder "C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash\". In this folder you will see a file named "Flash9f.ocx".
    2. Make copy of the "Flash9f.ocx" file in the same folder as the original (copy the original, then paste the copied file into the same folder).
    3. Rename the newly made copy to "Flash.ocx".
    4. If the previous steps don't eradicate the error messages, change your screen saver to one of the defaults that are included with Windows (such as "3D Text").
if the problem still persist please let me know.

Is macromedia flash player necessary for opening of html files?


It's not necessary to have Flash to open an HTML file, that's the browser's job. But if there's Flash content on the page, it won't play without Flash installed. You'll probably see a placeholder image where the content would be displayed, and may see an error message.
