Flash Player Installation Problem
« on: September 01, 2012, 04:23:21 PM »
http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/find-version-flash-player.html

Having always logged in as Administrator, I repeatedly fail to download the latest version of Flash Player "because I do not have Administrator rights", which is puzzling.

No matter what I try on their Help pages I get the same reply. I have Exited Winpatrol, neutralised (long ago) Threatfire - no difference.

As you see I run a home system 32. Any ideas - it may be security-related?

Regards

Thank you Asyn,

Just done it - but which one? T tried the second one down as I use Firefox, which I had to first close.

Flash version  11.4.402.265
Windows    Plugin-based browsers 

<<Windows    Plugin-based browsers    All supported languages    

    Download EXE Installer
    Download MSI Installer>> 

... and got the Fehlermeldung (I am in Germany and understand German - tho not German) "unausreichende Berechtigung bei Windows Mocramedia etc" - no authority.

I am not convinced that the 11.3.300.271 version would work either

As I said in my first post, I am ALWAYS logged as Administrator. This is why I am a bit sick of Adobe telling me I am not.

I go to Systemsteuerung to verify this: to Benutzerkonten und Jugendschutz -> hinzufügen/entfernen to verify that I am indeed logged in by my name, which also happens to be as Administrator.

Although this the Home version of Vista for my own personal use, as a precaution I have created a login name - which is also The Administrator. It always works whenver another program requests Administrator's permission - so what IS the problem here??

Did you try right clicking the installer and choose 'Run as admin"..??

Just tried 'Run as admin".. and although Flash Player 11 Plug-in is on the system it won't run -- "unausreichende Berechtigung" or such.

Earlier I used Adobe's own Flash Uninstaller in case it did not like CCleaner's uninstall, same result!

Well, it's Vista... ;D
As you've more than one admin account, try to log in with the other account and install FP.

Well, there is just me i.e. "HPY (Administrator)" and "Gast (nicht benutzt)".

I suppose I could try logging in as "Gast (nicht benutzt)" - for which I presume I would have to create a password.

But doesn't that strike you as illogical - since Vista keep s aksing for Administrator.

Anyway it will have to wait until tomorrow now - must go.

Thanks anyway.

Must get it done though.

1. Well, there is just me i.e. "HPY (Administrator)" and "Gast (nicht benutzt)".

1. Hmm, sorry no idea why this happens then...
2. Wouldn't help.

I logged in this morning, opened Firefox, and Windows as usual tells me "Flash Player 11.4 r402 funktioniert nicht mehr usw."

"FPlayer 11.4 r402 no longer works because of a technical problem. The program will close and you will be notfied if a solution is found"!

Terrific.

Can one do without it it?

I may as well uninstall it using Adobe's uninstaller, eh?
