Windows 7: Adobe Flash Player continuing asking for install

20 Oct 2009   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Have you tried completely uninstalling Flash, rebooting, and trying to install it again?

windows 7

I am going to try to explain the problem with one sample.

I have IExplorer with gmail in one TAB, I try to start a videoconference with a friend, it says me that I have to installa latest version of adobe flash player, I click on the link and opens a new TAB with the Adobe page for installation, I install it, I see the video on the adobe web page that means it is correctly installed. Then I go back to the TAB with gmail, I try again the video conference, and it continue saying that I have to installa latest version of adobe flash player.

I repeat this loop (install ... try ... install ... try ...) several times with no success. Then I have the idea of copying the url of the gmail TAB, and copy it in the Explorer TAB where adobe flash player was installed and adobe video works, it opens gmail, and when I try the videoconference, it works ... I then come back to the TAB where I had gmail (the first TAB), I try again the videoconference and it continues saying that I have to install latest version of adobe flash video.

Anybody knows why one installation of adobe works only for the tab where it was installed, and not for other TABs (past or future) or new IExplorer windows?

I stilll have Windows 7 RC 7100

Thanks in advance.

Windows7 on desktop & Vista on laptop

I am running Windows 7 32-BIT and downloaded the player from their site (v10) and it installs (or so it says on screen) but then when I insert a DVD that came with a Windows magazine I bought a month ago, it still says the installer requires flash to be installed on this system, meaning Windows the O/S, not Chrome (which I use) nor IExplorer (which I don't use, but I tried it anyway, although it is irrelevant if the content I am trying to play is off a DVD and not in a browser window off some website.

Windows7 on desktop & Vista on laptop

It doesn't work. I still put the DVD in and it gives me the same message that flash hasn't been installed. I also am using Chrome as my default web browser which I know is still being formed and developed but it used to have flash support before Windows 7, so who knows.

Does Chrome support flash? Is there an independent flash player that doesn't use a web browser?

I have the same problem. Install Flash and it works. Close the IE browser. Restart IE browser and pages that use flash say Flash is not installed.

I have tried uninstalling using the Adobe uninstaller. I have tried running the Adobe uninstall exe from an elevated DOS command as Adobe suggested. I have done the above uninstall-reboot-reinstall dozens of times. There is some setting amiss in my IE setup and I have even tried resetting IE.

I use 32 bit version of IE on 64 bit version of Windows 7

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

Problem is this is a bug in Adobes software as it also happens on XP.

It's installer/update checker just wigs out under some circumstances. Maybe contacting abobe about it or browsing some flash forums might have a better answer. I never did get it fixed on my XP machine but after installing 7 on it it went away.
