Installing Flash and Adobe

I go to the sites try to download, no luck.
I can do it on XP I just think there is a security feature I am unclear
about when it comes to downloading activex controls etc.

Thanks!

Not all XP programs are compatible with Vista, so you have to take that into
consideration. Also, you need administrative privileges to install anything.
So you either have to be in an administrative account or know an
administrative password (if there is a password protected administrave
account on the system).

Other than that, much is the same as in XP. You have to keep an eye on the
Information bar for alerts about ActiveX controls. And you have to give
permission to install those controls.

Actually, I think you're having the same problem I am, correct me if I'm
wrong...

I can't even get to adobe.com. It looks like it's loading, and IE finds the
site okay, but it gets hung up about 90% into loading the page, so it's
impossible to get acrobat reader installed because I can't get to the page.
I've even tried changing the URL a bit to adobe.com/reader and have no luck
there. Anyone have a direct link to the reader that will work with vista?

Exactly my problem and I am running on adminstrator account.

maybe we should just post the question "does anyone have adobe running on
windows vista beta 2 64bit edition and if so, how"..)

I was able to access Adobe's site, download and install both Acrobat Reader
and Flash Player with x64.

I do have an alternate to Acrobat Reader, for those who either want an
alternative or can not install Acrobat Reader. It is called "Foxit Reader"
and was just recently featured on DLTV as a viable alternative. It seems to
be faster, and it is much smaller.
