    Need flash player, can't download it. Help!

    I want to play call of duty 2 again, but I haven't got flash player installed on my pc anymore since I got Vista. Anyone know a good patch because every time I download flash player from the adobe website, I either get nothing at all or can't find the program except in my 'programs and features' on the control panel. There I see the flash player icon, with a BIG RED CROSS in the upper right corner and I'm sure it's not supposed to be there.

    Some help plz

    Make sure you download it using the 32bit version of explorer. Flash is not compatable with 64bit versions.

    The 64 bit version tells you it is 64 bit.
    To be totaly sure, use a different browser to download it.

    Okay so my Vista is the 64 bit version, so internet explorer is 64 bit too. A different browser is like Mozilla or something, right?

    I have had a look on adobe and there is a section regarding permissions and the registry.

    Download SubInACL from Microsoft to fix permission issues that prevent the Flash Player installation

    See if this helps.

    Hi Amplid,

    You can check what version of IE7 your are in by clicking on Help and About Internet Explorer. As Roy posted, it will have 64 bit listed of you are, otherwise you are in the correct 32 bit IE7.


    You might try the Adobe Flash Player uninstaller program to remove it from your computer first:

    How to uninstall the Adobe Flash Player plug-in and ActiveX control


    then see if it will install from here:

    Hope this helps you,
    Shawn
