How have you determined that the installation was unsuccessful?
Are you simply unable to view flash content? Or have you checked to see what's listed in the active x add-ons in your browser?
In Internet Explorer, for example, go to Tools, Manage Add-ons, and look to see if there is an active -x control from Adobe Systems, enabled or disabled, called Shockwave Flash Object and a version number. If you find this, flash is installed on your system. Make sure it is enabled.
Be aware that you may need to be running your system as a user with administrative rights to install Adobe Flash player.
If that's all in order, please follow these steps to workaround your issue:

  1. Please check to make sure your system meets the requirements for installation of the latest flash player, by going to this link and comparing to your system information. For current Flash Player system requirements, visit http://www.adobe.com/go/flashplayer_sysreq_en/
  2. Follow these steps in order: Troubleshooting flashplayer installation: http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=tn_19166&sliceId=1
  3. That should have taken care of it! If not, Download and unzip Install_Flash_Player_10_ActiveX.zip. Extract this executable file to your desktop, close all applications, and run it from there.
  4. To confirm your installation, go here: http://www.macromedia.com/software/flash/about/

If that fixed your issue, great! If not, please report back with details about the error messages you are receiving and give me some details about your system and I'll try to walk you through.

If I've been able to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

It may just be the website. The latest version of FlashPlayer ususally installs without a hitch (Adobe.com). Do you still have this problem?

SOURCE: RE: installing adobe flash player 9

If you are using Internet Explorer as your browser, you should see a yellow bar pop up at the top of the web page, below your address bar. You will need to click on this bar and follow the directions to allow ActiveX to install for Adobe's installation to continue.

I have windows xp on my computer and I can't uninstall adobe 9.1.1, how can I get it off my computer?

Due to recent enhancements to the Adobe Flash Player installers, you can now remove the player only by using the Adobe Flash Player uninstaller. To remove Flash Player, simply download and run the appropriate uninstaller for your system using the steps below.
  1. Download the Adobe Flash Player uninstaller:
  2. Save the file to your system, choosing a location where you can find it (for example, your desktop). Macintosh users may need to open or unstuff the .hqx file.
  3. Quit ALL running applications, including all Internet Explorer or other browser windows, AOL Instant Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, MSN Messenger, or other Messengers. Check the Windows system tray carefully to make certain no applications are still in memory which might possibly use Flash Player.
  4. Run the uninstaller. This will remove Adobe Flash Player from all browsers on the system.
Note: The uninstaller cannot remove files currently in use.
If you have any instances of the player open in your web browsers, instant messaging clients, stand-alone SWFs, or projectors, then the uninstaller will complete but some files may not be deleted. If this occurs, then close all of your applications and run the uninstaller again to ensure that all files are removed.
Note: Internet Explorer users may have to reboot to clear all uninstalled Flash Player ActiveX control files. If you're not certain, select the "Show Details" button in the Flash Player uninstaller. If there are any log lines that begin with "Delete on Reboot..." then you'll need to reboot BEFORE running the Flash Player installer again.

Installing flash player on windows xp

Go to Control Panel, Add/Remove programs, and remove any flash version you see.

Then reboot, go here, and install it manually. Close any open windows and don't use the computer while the install proceeds. Reboot after the installation.

.swf files don't run

Hello,

.swf files are Flash files and are played by the Adobe Flash Player. If you currently have the Adobe Flash Player installed, try going to Start --> Control Panel and clicking on Add/Remove Programs. When the screen loads click on Adobe Flash Player and click Uninstall. Finally restart your computer.

When the computer reboots, use the below link to install Adobe Flash Player.
