    Vista & adobe flash player

    I have vista business running on an asus laptop. I’ve been trying to connect my HTC Touch mobile phone with the laptop and have been having problem with Windows mobile centre (error msg “ This action is only valid for products that are currently installed). I attempted to run the Windows mobile handbook & keep getting the error "The getting started disc requires Adobe Flash player version 8.0 or later…". I have installed the latest version of flash (v10), have uninstalled it (via adobe’s recommended process), reinstalled, executed FlashUtil10b as administrator, checkd activex & plugin settings (as per adobe site settings), but to no avail. I have also tried to install the active synch (predecessor to Windows mobile) and again, the error msg regarding flash player 8.0 or later required. Any suggestions as to what the cause is & solution. Thanks
