Flash not installing correctly

Q: Flash not installing correctly

Hello everyone, i have this really annoying problem with flash player. Sorry if this is in the wrong section btw, basically when i go to a site that needs flash for something it says to install it and i do so. After it is installed and i try to go to a site that requires it, it just says to install it. Its almost as if the install that i have does not stay on the PC when i install it, i have tried tons of fixes and have searched for solutions for hours and i know this is a good site and i hope someone will be able to help me out. thanks a bunch

Preferred Solution: Flash not installing correctly

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.)

I went on to watch tv series episodes but whenever i click on the player to view the episode, it says "Flash 8 is required to view these full-length episodes. You can download Flash 8 here." So i click on the link and download flash, and it says successful download everytime but when i go back to the player, the same message about having to download flash appears.

I thought maybe it would be a problem with IE, so i tried it on mozilla firefox and this time ti asked me to download Move Media Player, so i did that.. but again the same message appears about having to download Move Media Player again. is this a problem with the website or my computer? can you try it on your computer to see if the abc player works? heres the link

A:Flash not correctly installing?

I can't view anything because I'm outside the US (and I doubt that the player would work on dialup!).

If the message you are getting refers to the Adobe Flash plugin it is odd, because the latest version is 9,0.124,0

Go to this tester page using each of your browsers and see what version of flash is currently installed;

I cannot get Adobie Flash to function correctly. Additionally about 50% of the pictures I see on sites have a red X or the square / triangle / circle logo on them. I have repeatedly installed the Flash Active X from Adobe?s site. The flash animation comes up and shows that I have successfully installed flash, yet I am still getting red X's and many flash animations don?t work.

I have XP Home SP3.

A:Flash wont work correctly.

G'Day audiobahn, Welcome to TSF!

Please try this workaround...

Go Start > Run > type in the box C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash

Now copy the Flash9e.ocx file and then pasted it back in the same directory.

You will have created Copy of Flash9e.ocx; rename it to Flashe.ocx.

This effectively will give you two files; Flashe.ocx and Flash9e.ocx, both the same file; although with a different name, in the same directory.

This generally stops the issue you have described.

Post back with the outcome.

Kind Regards,

One day I uninstalled Some programs like acivex plugin for flashplayer and etc but whenever I try to run some programs l get the error message
Flash 8a.ocx is not correctly registered or some of it's dependicies is missing

A:Solved: Flash 8a.ocx is not correctly registered

If you uninstalled Flash via Add/Remove there could be remnants of the old version left behind.that may be causing the message you are getting.

If you want to check that theory, you can download and use the uninstaller from the Adobe site;

If you uninstalled Flash by mistake, you can get the new plugin from here;

Active X version for IE; (read the installation instructions carefully)
Non Active X (Firefox, Opera etc);

A:USB Flash Drive not saving correctly

verify it is formated as FAT
ensure you use the task bar tool to STOP the device before you yank it out.
you might check the partition capacity for accuracy
CP->admin tools->Comp Mgmt->Disk Defrag
my 256mg flash shows up as 246mb formatted capacity,
your 512 should be similar

Formated as FAT, the Flash can be mount on multiple systems types,
Macintosh, Linux, Win/*

Hi All,
I need to buy a new hard disk today and install Xp. Been a while since I've done that but I remember last time it asked me what sort of file system I wanted - FAT 32 etc etc - not really sure about that, any advice please? Also - do I need to format the disk first or will that get done as part of the install procedure??
Should I fully install all my cards - (network, firewire etc) before the install?
Thanks for any advice or links you may have.

A:Installing Xp Correctly

First thing you're going to want to do is get windows installed, I always choose fat32 mainly because that's the way my disk is.

If this is a brand new hard disk, it will already be clean of everything and all you have to do is install windows on it, You can format it through the installation program but its not needed

If you can before you install, burn as many programs drivers etc onto a disk to ensure that you can have everything without having to connect to the internet, that's if you can

upon installing windows you're going ot want to activate the firewall, and avoid doing any internet activity until windows is fully upgraded and all your drivers from your motherboard, cd drives or whatever you have is installed

once everything is updated and installed then you can proceed to use the internet again, and use it wisely to get whatever you need.. AVG, A firewall, Etc..

I wouldn't recommned you check e-mail or anything utnil you have an AV going, a spyware/malware program going, a firewall up, Etc... only then I would do things like that

I have searched everywhere online for an answer to this, but it seems that I am the only one who has ever had this problem.  It was fine until I attempted to install a win 7 theme, it messed up the font on my computer.  I have fixed it everywhere except for in flash based games and videos.  As you can see from the photo I posted, it is near impossible to make out the text.  I have already tried uninstalling and re-installing the flash player.  Is there anything else that I can do?  Oh, and I should mention that it is only in Chrome.  It works fine in firefox, and two other browsers.

I used this site: to pick any other files I would need to install. The site also says that the path to GCC is /usr/local/bin, but the bin directory, and the lib and etc directory also in the local folder, are empty. Can someone please help me?

Hi Everybody,

I've been building computers and repairing computers for quite a while now, and today I came up with a problem that I have not experienced before.
It's really frustrating so I'm counting on fellow forum members to help me out on this situation.

Situation: Client asked to have the computer reformatted. Everything was working fine, but he had windows 7, and his computer wasn't handling it too well.

I booted CD-Rom with Windows XP SP3. Good
Deleted Partition of the Old OS. Good
Installed Windows OS onto the new partition. Good
Computer Reboots itself after 100%. Good
After the Reboot, The Computer stays on "Boot from CD:" Bad
Usually, You'd wait that off, and it will continue on to windows.

I think i just figured out what i did wrong. Im going to go try it ott.

I often need to upload and utilize various fonts in my line of work I recently used the install as shortcut feature from not correctly Fonts installing an outside folder Fonts not installing correctly that ultimately screwed everything up in the fonts themselves I have a total of fonts that show up in the folder whereas there used to be something When I try and install them the folder says that they are already installed Fonts not installing correctly but they are not and they are not able to be pulled up from any of the programs I am using either I dont have a restore point as I just spent the past couple days REINSTALLING from the last issue I was having just to fall into another one I found an previous version of the fonts folder by right clicking and choosing properties I can see all the fonts and everything but again installing does not work I am logged in as the Administrator of the computer and I have tried copying and replacing the entire fonts folder rather than simply installing them basically the entire fonts folder will be overwritten rather than installed but I am having issues because it keeps telling me that I do not have permission I have tried to go under the windows folder properties and assign the administrators full control but that did not work at all it still says I do not have permission So my question how the hell do I give myself permission to overwrite the fonts folder I can see how not having permission to overwrite in the Windows folder is a good thing but how can I bypass this so I can have access

A:Fonts not installing correctly

Try taking ownership of the folder first, then overwrite it if you'd like.

I have 3 internal hard drives and am trying to add a 4th. The ones that I have are a 1TB (Boot), a 2TB MBR, and a 3TB MBR. When I try to install the 2nd 3TB one and go into Disk Management to create the partitions, it only shows this 4th HD as being 746.52GB! In fact, I have already returned one to the store thinking there was something wrong with the drive but obviously it was not.

When I turn my HP LaserJet CP1215 on, on a fresh install of Win 8 Preview the Printer Driver loading icon appears on the taskbar and the green shade goes across as if it's installing correctly. Looking in Control Panel/Printers and devices shows the printer installed and the properties shows the device is working correctly.

However when I try to print in any application no printer is shown, and trying to add a printer runs through the search and finds nothing.

What am I doing wrong? The printer works fine in win 7, any pointers or experiences would be much appreciated.

I am downgrading from win 10 to win 7 on this laptop and everything has been fine until I started installing drivers, almost every driver I install doesn't seem to install correctly... this has never happened before to me i'm just baffled! After install, the driver doesn't update like it usually does so it still shows in device manager that it isn't installed. I don't know what to do, I know they are the correct drivers since I used the detection tool from HP.

A:Drivers not installing correctly

Hello Lonegeek mate just a little something I do when stuck like that is to download the drivers to a stick and then onto the machine you want them on. You need access to another machine of course to access the machines support site but thats a quick way.

By the by some systems specs would help mate

I just bought a 250 gig SATA drive and I have never installed one onto a machine. I looked at my mobo manual and correctly put in the corrections. When I try to run Windows XP Pro, it shows that I have 131069 MB of unpartitioned space. Now, I'm not math wiz, but 131069 does not seem nearly enough for it to be 250 gigs.

Also in the bios, it shows my drive being in the "IDE Channel 2 Master".

Am I doing something wrong?

you need to install your SATA drivers. When installing windows you should press F6 to install Raid/SCSI drivers. this is when you should install your drivers. i have the same problem, i have two 160gb SATA drives, but i never installed the drivers so at the moment i have only got about 260gb instead of 320gb...

I have been ignoring the issue since everything was working until recently. I have started to notice things are slower (Internet Explorer, Chrome) and updates for Avast and other programs seem to get stopped before they can begin.

The newest release of this driver is version After installing, my computer restarts and everything is fine. My problem occurs after a couple of days (I think it is caused when I switch power plans or unplug laptop) the power saving technology in the Intel graphics control panel is turned on even though I have the setting disabled. This setting is very annoying because on a white background the brightness is normal, but when on a darker background the brightness gradually decreases. Also when looking in Intel graphics control panel it says I have driver version Even though I have installed the newest update.

You don't want to run two anti virus programs at the same time, this will only cause complications like false positives.

Can anyone tell me how to get Macromedia Flash to install in IE?

Whenever I try to visit a website that uses it, it won't load the page for me. Instead, it shows a link which takes me to Macromedia's download site. The problem is, when I click the "Install Now" button, it just shows an instant animation that spins around and says 'Flash has been successfully installed'.

But when I go back and try to access the website, it still tells me I need the plugin! I've tried rebooting the computer, but it still won't let me.

Any suggestions?

Go to tools / internet options/ general/ temp internet files
delete files / delete all offline content and click okay. It is possible a cached page indicates no flash installed. Likewise their cookie may be holding this info.
So go to tools /internet options/ general / temp internet/ view files/ and find and delete their cookie (or just delete all cookies if it does not matter)

A:installing flash

Always use latest authorised version from adobe website

if using XP or any other OS with IE 8 then is latest version
if using Vista or W7 with IE9 then 10.2 beta is suggested for compatability

Don't use the beta on a non IE9 system or it will likely cause soem errors. Also don't expect 10.1 to work on IE9 if hardware accelleration is enabled ( it will crash frequently)

Hello folks,
I'm afraid this may be duplicating my post since I do not see my post in this forum and I cannot remember (really) anything about where I posted it this morning about 01:30. 
I've been using FP for years without major difficulty on Firefox (FF), but in the last week or so, even when happily viewing video clips requiring FP, I was nagged incessantly to d/l a fresh copy of FP.
My problem is, despite many re-downloads, I cannot install Flash Player (FP) further than its Installer Screen, which remains blank and is very difficult to kill.
My PC runs Win7 Ultimate, 64 bit, with all programs up-to-date, and the only change effected in the last month was a silent FF update.
Any help would be very gratefully received,

Flash on Firefox is an addon, not a separate program. So you should maybe delete the addon and then re-add it.

I have created a bootable USB flash drive with the Windows 7 install DVD contents on it, so I am in a position to install to the Netbook hosting the USB hard disk. I have also (for reference) created a VHD on a different Windows 7 machine and set it up to boot from that, on the internal HDD.

The W7 installer will not install directly to a partition on my external HDD, because it is connected by USB or Firewire (err message "Windows cannot be installed to this disk"). I can't "just ignore" the warning, as suggested by some, as the Next button is inoperative.

If I create a virtual hard disk (VHD) on a partition on the external HDD I am again warned by the Installer that it can't be installed to the VHD as the "computer's hardware may not support booting to this disk". If I ignore the warning and press Next (only works for the VHD option) I am told "Setup was unable to create a new system partition....See the setup log files for more information"

I can at that stage use the Installer tools to Format the VHD etc.

So I'm stuck - where do I find the installer log files and how can I move forward to get a bootable installation on a USB connected drive ?

Have a look at this;

I personally use Adobe's uninstaller to get rid of old versions and then get the new '.exe' versions from the links you will find in the 'Download issues' section of the Troubleshooter under the heading 'Progress bar hangs...'.

If you have the Google Chrome browser it uses an integrated version of Flash which should get updated automatically. If the integrated version doesn't work for any reason, Chrome will then attempt to use the separate 'other browsers' plugin that you get from the links mentioned above.

So I have a few dead computers laying around and I was kinda hoping I could make use of one of the XP licenses I have. I was wondering if I would be able to install a copy onto a flash drive, and if so, how?

Part of why I wanna do this is to have a sort of recovery OS, where if a computer is not bootable, I can boot to this, recover files, ,run anti-virus, etc. (I've tried things like BartPE but it doesn't offer the flexibility I would get out of a fully functional operating system)

And on that note; if one OS (OS1) is having difficulties booting or is in a locked down state (due to virus or otherwise), how would I be able to boot to a seperate OS (OS2) and edit the startup programs on OS1?

I prefer FireFox over Explorer.

Hi, welcome to TSF

The "upgrade your flash player" message can appear when something is blocking scripts from running, even when Flash is correctly installed.

Check your internet options, security programs and Firefox addons to see if anything is blocking java or scripts. (eg. NoScript addon for Firefox)

There are 2 versions of the Adobe Flash Player available. One for Internet Explorer and one for other browsers like Firefox and Opera - Click here to download - Make sure you've got both versions installed and your graphics driver is up to date. If you need to update your graphics driver, reboot after installing.

You system specs indicate that your browser is named Iron. (Which I think is Chrome reworked by the folks at SRWare.) You should probably update that browser if you really are on version 36..... (or remove the version number - if you are not updating your info with each release.)

You can update your specs via this link:

I have had difficulty installing Adobe Flash Player. I have Windows XP SP3 and Opera 10.60 Portable. After what seems like hundreds of attempts, I have been able to get Flash Player to work on my main browser. However, I have another copy of the browser on an external drive and I still cannot get Flash to work with that.

Adobe, like most computer and software companies, has made the process opaque. I believe some simple information will help me.

1. Is Adobe Flash Player installed separately for each browser and each instance of a given browser?


2. Is Adobe Flash Player installed on the underlying system and supposed to work for all browsers from that single installation?

3. In either case, where is the installation located? What are the names of the files and/or directories of the installation.

I believe that answers to these questions will help with my problem.

Thanks a lot!

Found a way that works (so far, the new drive formatting as I type this) here:Flashboot: with screenshots: & copied CD to USB stick, I plugged it into the old Dell, booted and it uses FDisk to format the drive, unfortunately in FAT-32, no option for NTFS...It's at 90% now, I will post back with any further developments, Good or Bad.Edit 1: Setup is copying files...Edit 2: Converted to NTFS, @ 34 min mark Edit 3: Done! Installing the first 90 Windows Updates.That was a LOT easier than I thought it would be

I am trying to install the latest flash player, and I keep getting the same
message. (C:\windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\FlashPlayerUpdateService.exe5) could not be written due to insufficient permissions. I am logged on as the administrator ,I uninstalled the old flash player, switched off virus and fire wall. Still no joy. I have also tried installing using firefox and chrome same result. I did at one time get an error message from microsoft saying "macromedia Flash ActiveX control not compatable" Would be grateful for any help as the computer is close to becoming a U.F.O.

I have had to reinstall windows xp recently due to awindows system 32 failure, and i need to reinstall Adobe flash player for a program my son uses. Now my problem is.......every time i try to install, it finishes and tells me installation is complete, but i can find no location for it, apart from in add/remove programs where there is no file size mentioned ( so i presume it hasn't installed), and my son still cant open his program. I have windows xp and internet explorer.

Sue, Make sure when you are installing Flash you have no other browser windows open. When install is finished, reboot and check it again.

I have properly configured a USB flash drive to make it bootable, put the files from the W7 install image on it and can boot from it and install W7 on my computer.

All good so far. But I have an extra 5 GB of space on this flash drive and I would like to put some other useful programs on it, if possible, without messing up my ability to install/repair windows with this flash drive.

So can I just add in some more folders to the flash drive, containing other programs like, for example, the Acronis TIH bootable rescue image containing TIH and Acronis Disk Director Suite, and have it so I could choose to boot into them or the Windows install/repair disk? And, if so, how would I set this up?

Thanks in advance for any help with this.

A:Installing from USB Flash Drive question

I just added some folders with my AVg antivirus install, wallpapers, gadgets, etc.

After I installed Win7 from the flash drive, I just went & opened the folders & copied the stuff I wanted over to the HD. If you got the space use it.

Is it possible to install Windows(XP/Vista/7/embedded) onto a USB flash drive, such that it is bootable from any PC (assuming it supports USB boot and meets the minimum OS requirements)?

The installation should ideally provide basic services necessary to perform mundane activities such as web surfing and word processing.

I've seen guides for installing Windows onto USB flash drives and HDDs, but not one that claims to be portable. Is this at all possible?

A:Installing Windows on a USB flash drive

Your best bet would be to have a winpe on a usb stick. PE (preinstalled environment) is a lightweight windows version actually meant to run recovery and imaging tools. You can look up readymade pe's on the internet or you can make one with waik though thats a tedious procedure and not everybody's upto it. SIW2 (a member here) has made some nice pe's, you can message him for help, particularly how to add word processing.

Running full fledged win7 from a usb stick would be slow, also it couldnt possibly have all the drivers needed to run it on different PCs. Licensing would also be an issue.

I'm having some issues getting Adobe Flash to install.
Running ie8, win xp home.
I've tried all troubleshooting methods on the adobe site to get it to work, except mess with the registry. (I don't feel comfortable with that given the limited instructions they provided).

Have run a registry cleaner, mcafee virus, and found nothing unusual on either. Have attempted multiple reboots with no further luck.

What is happening is that I will start the download for the new adobe flash, get no error messages or other indication that it didn't work, (page will contiue to not show completed graphic after install should be completed) yet some sites are still telling me that I need to download the newest version to view.

A:Adobe Flash not installing propperly

Welcome to TSF


Have run a registry cleaner,

Registry cleaner can sometimes make matters worse, I do not support using them for any reason.

IE8 is still buggy and alot of users are complaining about the same issue. Try removing IE8 and see if those sites still complain. have you tried Compatibility View?
