Preferred Solution: Solved: Insufficient privileges to install Adobe flash although I have admin privileg

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Recently I have been trying to install some programs but i keep getting an error similar to this:
"Error occurred while attempting to create a directory in folder Program Data. Insufficient privileges. Install as administrator."

I keep getting the same error and I am trying to install Adobe Acrobat X Pro (if anyone is interested to know). And yes I am on an administrator account and i even tried installing it from the super administrator account. I have no ideas on how to fix this problem

Any help is appreciated . Thank you

A:Can't install programs....Error: Insufficient privileges

Hi and welcome to sevenforums
Since you have already tried with both administrator and super administrator, can you disable UAC and check?
Disable UAC on Windows 7
Windows 7 makes it much easier to deal with UAC settings, and in fact you don’t have to completely disable UAC if you don’t want to.
Just type UAC into the start menu or Control Panel search box.
You can simply drag the slider up or down, depending on how often you want to be alerted.
If you drag it all the way down to the bottom, you’ll have disabled it entirely.

It is not recommended to keep UAC disabled, so once you have completed an installation re-enable UAC.

Let us know what happens.

Frustrated with admin rights - Please help me.

Just purchased new PC - HP Pavilion desktop and upgraded to Windows 10 during installation. I've downloaded Google Chrome as my default search engine with no issues. I've attempted several times to download Google Earth. Download fails: "Google Earth needs administrator privileges to install."

I am the only user on this PC and User Account type indicates that I'm the "Administrator".

Why won't Google Earth install?

A:Google Earth won't install - admin privileges required (I am admin)

Hello and welcome!

Sometimes you have to run the installation file and deliberately make it "Run as Administrator" by right clicking on the downloaded file and selecting this option. Not sure if this is the case with Google Earth but worth a try.

Win8 has done something similar on a lot of occasions, but to be specific i am trying to run STALKER-Clear Sky and i get this message:

I am the admin, I have run as administrator, I set both user and admin accounts to have full access to files. I am officially stumped and windows 8 is the worst creation of all time. I would love some help and hopefully to stop this problem permanently. Thanks in advance!

A:"insufficient privileges" when i am admin

Right click on the app and run it as admin. Being the admin does not mean that everything runs in admin mode (elevated mode).

If you make a shortcut of the app > go to Properties > Advanced > there is a small box to check that will always run the app in admin mode whenyou run it from the shortcut. The shortcut is best made from the .exe of the program in the program library.

A friend of mine called a minute ago and she figured out how to fix the problem. I know a lot of other people have had this problem playing this on Windows 7 from looking in other forums and nobody's been able to fix it, but my friend told me she got her copy fixed. Apparently there is a driver that is not compatable with Windows 7 called "TAGES". You go to their website and update the driver and it works again. I managed to get mine running too.

Many websites I use (bank, credit card companies, Nextiva fax) keep telling me I need to install latest version of Flash Player. Finally managed to get it downloaded and a message saying "install successful." Ver 12 is listed in programs. However, I still get the message "latest version of flash player required--download here." I click the link but nothing happens. Since it is already installed that seemed to make sense.
I run Windows 7 Professional 64-bit and prefer to use IE (latest version) or Firefox. In the past I had Google Chrome installed but it seemed to cause various problems with my PC. Once I uninstalled Chrome all my problems went away.

You could try the Java downloads from Old Version of Java Download - just ensure you select the correct version for either a 32 or 64 bit browser or both.

I'm not on Vista right now, so I can't check if this works, but this applies to XP.
On XP Pro, run group policy (start, run, then type gpedit.msc). Navigate to "User Configuration", "Administrative Templates", "Windows Components", "Internet Explorer", "Administrator Approved Controls". If you double click Shockwave Flash, you can set the policy to enabled or disabled.
I can't tell if that would work on Vista, but you can try; and XP Home doesn't have group policy.

Windows XP Home SP3 on a PC

My Adobe Flash Player wasn't working in IE7 or Firefox so I followed the instructions on this forum to remove it and re-install but all that I keep getting is the installer and not the Flash Player itself.
I also saw mentioned not to use the installer but I don't know how to avoid that.
Every link that I follow from this forum takes me to the installer.

Please show me where the Flash Player is to get just that.
Also - if I need to use the installer which one is the right one (I see 2 different ones.)

And - while I'm asking - do I also need the Adobe Shockwave and where do I get that?

Anyone know what the problem could be???

try this. go to your add/remove programs and look for adobe flash player 9 active x 3.04 mb. if its listed u have it but its not working right. if not try this go to and look under software. look for adobe flash player 9 active x stand alone version. download and install it then check your add/remove programs again. it should then be listed and u should be good to go. if its listed in your add/remove programs now it might not say how many mbs. if thats the case just remove it and install the one i mentioned. hope this helps u.

I can't seem to install Adobe Flash Player or ActiveX.
I was able to download the .exe file using Firefox but couldn't do it when I was using Internet Explorer.
So I obviously isntalled Adobe but I don't think it's properly working. The next thing I would like to do is upgrade my computer because I have no service pack but I don't have ActiveX. I can't seem to find any site that uses it so that I get the prompt to download it.

Will ActiveX come with Adobe, or is ActiveX from Microsoft?
If no, then how can I download ActiveX and Adobe?

Hi. For the past week I have run into problems viewing several websites that I/my kids frequent due to a notice that I need to install the new Adobe Flash Player. I bet I have installed it 8 or 10 times, it says it is successful, but when I try to access the website again, I get the same message. The version I seem to have on my system is the same version I have been attempting to download, but something apparently isn't getting registered. Can anyone tell me what I might be doing wrong?

The main (and only account) I have been using since the first beta came out had administrator privileges.

Today when I booted up I noticed that my account could no longer do things that are associated with an admin account, such as installing certain programs and writing to certain folders.

I created another account with admin rights and that account has the exact same problem. I tried removing the admin status on my account and putting it back on but that did not work.

Anyone else have this problem or have any advice on how to get my account seen as an admin account?

There should be an admin account with full rights that was created when Windows was installed but it is usually only available when booting into safe mode. When safe mode starts, he should see an admin account and his account. Have him select admin and then go to control panel, user accounts. There he should be able to set up accounts and change the rights on existing accounts

Hi everyone.

I am hoping someone can help me with this. I had to restore my computer to the factory settings and I've already downloaded all the updates except I'm having a lot of trouble with Adobe Flash. Every time I try to install it gives me the SAVE option, I save it to my desktop or my download folder but when I try to run the exe it disappears. I've tried 4 different browsers in case it's not downloading it properly but it does the same. I tried to install it with my firewall and anti virus off and the same thing happens.

I'm not computer literate at all so those are the only things I sort of know how to do.

I can't watch videos online or do anything that requires that darn program and it's rather frustrating!

What's the big difference if any between shockwave player and flash player? I see both in the control panel.

However, one says I have flash player 10, but I have just now downloaded their newest version 10.1. And that's been the second time at least for the same update. ??

The other says I have shockwave player 11.5. Both are Adobe.

By the way, in the control panel and over on the right side, there's a column that lists how often used and also where you can delete a program. But with the new version, altho it's listed as loaded on the left side, the right is blank except for the word delete. In other words, no listing for size like all the other programs.

A:I can't install adobe flash player.

Have a look at the Adobe Troubleshooter;

If you are trying the install via the main Adobe website, and it isn't working, have a look at the section headed 'Download issues' and the paragraph beginning 'Progress bar hangs during download / Unable to connect to server / Unable to download metafile'.

There are links in that paragraph to .exe versions of the plugins which you download and doubleclick to install (having closed your browser(s) first).

When I go to Adobe to install Flash though, it won't install. The pop up that usually comes up in Windows 7 to ask if I approve the download - doesn't come up here at all.

Does Flash not work with Windows 7/IE11 or do I need to tweak something with my computer.

A:Adobe Flash Won't Install On Windows 7/IE 11

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
Click the Start button and click on Control panel,
On the top right next to the question mark click on the down arrow and switch to small icons,
Is Flash player listed ?

If so Open ie11,
Click on the Gear symbol on the top right and Manage add-ons,
On the bottom of the left column switch to Show All add-ons,
Top left column click on Toolbars and extensions,
Is shockwave flash object enabled ?

If none of the above is true you can download flash player/ shockwave object from Adobe's site
Verify flash is installed,

You might also use Gear symbol and Safety and see if anything there is checked if so uncheck Active x filtering

Any ideas as to what I can do will be really appreciated

Can not install Adobe Flash Player with IE 8 under XP

I get a message:
Installation encountered errors
Failed to initialize

A:Can not install Adobe Flash Player with IE 8 under XP

Try installing Flash in Safe Mode. However, the Windows Installer service will not start in Safe Mode.

Download SafeMSI. This will enable the Windows Installer service in Safe Mode.

Be sure to run the program while in Safe Mode.

Then, try installing Flash again.

Last weekend "The Doo-Doo Crew" finished the 48 Hour Film Project contest in Asheville, North Carolina. We received some press from the local ABC affilate, WLOS. I would like to watch it on my Sony Vaio laptop, but I cannot get Adobe Flash to intall correctly.

I've tried just about everything:

Uninstalling flash, running a registry cleaner, and reinstalling it...nothing.

I've messed with the regedit permissions...nothing.

I've set Internet Explorer's security to the lowest possible setting ans tried reinstalling IT...more nothing.

I've installed Flash, checked that it was working on Adobe's own site which it was, but then jumped over to Jib Jab, and again, nothing.

About two weeks ago, my computer started saying that I needed to update adobe flash. So, I clicked on the link and installed it; low and behold, it didn't install and said I still need to install it.

I tried this process like alot of times. I even turned off all my virus protection and enabled all internet settings to run without security.

Also, I updated all of my other software that works along with flash.

Can anyone help?

It is very annoying considering like everything uses flash.
[at least everything I use]

While using the Mozilla Firefox browser in my HP laptop and after installing the latest update, the Flash player stopped working. I could not play most videos or acces radio stations from the net. I tried uninstalling all Adobe and Shockwave Flash programs and reinstalling Adobe Shockwave Flash. It seemed to download OK but would not install. I checked the Norton firewall settings which allows Flash to get thru.

A:Adobe Shockwave Flash will not install

Have you checked these out?: and

In older versions of Windows you might be advised to run the uninstaller that is available from the Adobe Website, but I don't know if that applies to W8.

So about a month ago I was on facebook trying to watch videos when it said I needed to get the new flash player, so I downloaded it and the installation movie came up saying it was successfully installed.

I went back to the videos on facebook, and it still didn't work. So I reset my computer then tried videos on facebook again and it still didn't work and said I didn't have the newest Adobe installed. So I clicked on the link again and installed it but it didn't work.

I went through the process 10 times (no exageration) and it's getting quite annoying especially because as of today youtube requires the new flash player too..

So, I go to weigh in on Weight Watchers online and I'm greeted with a message that says I need Adobe flash player 9 or higher installed in order to use their weight tracker.  I noticed when I booted up that a new version of Adobe had been installed automatically. But no updated flash player?  So, I go to this website:
and proceed to download the Non IE version since I have google chrome browser.  and I'm greeted by my free Avira antivirus software's message that it's detected an unwanted Adware software and I cannot proceed.  
does anyone have any idea how I get around this? Everything worked fine until Adobe updated the software automatically.
thank you.

Adobe Flash Player wont install on my computer. My computer is extremely slow, yet when I scan it for viruses it says that none is detected. Also when I turn it on a little gray pop up box comes up and says it was not able to load my profile so it gave me a default profile and something is wrong with my registry? I have no idea what is wrong. I tried to defrag and my computer says it doesnt need it, it has a lot of space still on it. Im just not sure whats wrong with it.

Please help

I read through a few forums about this problem, but still cannot get this corrected. I have Windows 7 64 bit system...I cannot view video from websites like ESPN because it says I need Flash player...Went to Adobe and other sides such as softpedia,etc. The program begins install and then gets to 98 percent and gives the following error:
cannot be written due to insufficient privledge.
I have tried to install after disabiling Norton and all Antivirus programs. Still no luck. I have tried also to download the file to computer and installing with ADMIN. privledge and still no work.
Any ideas? Sounds like a common problem on 64 bit machines, but lots of different answers, none seem to work so far.
