Windows 7: Flash not workig

11 Dec 2010   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Flash not workig

I installed VMC Playit in Media Center, and all of the Hulu give me an error that flash is not installed. I've tried a few of the internet tv episodes and they seen to be working fine. I was lead to believe that flash is already built into WMC 7 -- it this true?

Hello anne and welcome to the Forum. I'd suggest going into your control panel > programs and features and see if Adobe Flash is listed. It would look something like this:

Attachment 122601

If it's listed you should be good to go. But double check that you have the latest version ( If you don't have the latest version, use the Adobe Uninstaller to remove the outdated version before trying to install the latest version.

Uninstall Flash Player | Windows

If you need to install the latest version, don't forget to UNcheck the Google Toolbar if you don't want it to be installed as well.
