cant seem to install flash (firefox, windows7 32bit)

Hello, as the title says, I just cant seem to get flash installed, windows7 32bit, and trying to install in Firefox. Im betting this has been asked before, but cant seem to find anything. Thanks, Readysteady:)

EDIT: Ok, feel a bit of an idiot, ran installer as Administrator, and that sorted it. Apologies for "noobish" error, Readysteady.

Use the 32 bit IE8 with Flash 1O

This is why preinstaaled W7 has both 32bit and 64 bit IE8. Adobe dropped the ball on a 64 bit version of flash. Use both in 32 bit until there is a non beta 64 bit flash.

Wow, thanks for the reply Macmeech1. I actually uninstalled 7 about 4 months ago. Never did resolve that issue, but that wasnt the reason for uninstalling. I just wanted to check it out and see whats new, and to be honest I did like it, just didnt need 2 OS's. But thanks for the reply, Readysteady
