Cannot Play Youtube Videos - Upgrade Adobe Flash Player

Cannot play videos such as youtube, i get a message saying "upgrade adobe flash player", but that's not the problem. Ever since i upgraded to ie8, whenever i go to youtube, the player won't play. It gives me a message that says i need to upgrade my adobe flash player. I've done that several times, and it doesn't help. I still get the same message.

Now here's the funny part. When i use firefox, youtube works just fine! Which tells me the problem is in ie. I would actually prefer to use ie instead of firefox (more familiar) but i'm at my wit's end trying to figure out what the problem is, or how to go about fixing it.

Flash Player Causing Blue Screen Error

I have recently bought a new system. Everything runs perfectly except for one critical problem; i can't view flash videos or anything played in a web browser by flash player. Animated flash advertisements will load to the first couple of frames, i will hear a bit of noise and then a brief 1-2 second system hang and straight in to a blue screen. Same goes for youtube etc, might see a frame, if that, a brief noise and hang/blue-screen. This has occurred since i have purchased the pc.

I have attempted to fix the problem by updating my graphics drivers to the latest, updating flash player to the latest, updating sound drivers to the latest.

System:amd i5 750 ati radeon 5870 realtek audio i am just viewing the blue-screen dump file, there is no bug check string, however it seems to indicate an amd/graphics driver causing the conflict.

Error - The Version Of This File Is Not Compatible With Version Of Windows

The version of this file is not compatible with the version of windows you're running. Check your computers system information to see whether you need an x86 (32 bit) or x64 (64 bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher.

I have a large cd collection published by national geographic. The difficulty lies in installing the program that displays the pages. The program installer ends in . Ins. These picture cd's have been produced by mindscape. When you try to contact them, they are based in france, and it is impossible to obtain support for this product. Is there any way of getting the installer on the cd to do its job of providing a means of turning the 'pages'?

Error - This Version Of The File Is Not Compatible With Version Of Windows

I've tried running the program in question (castle of the winds) in every compatibility mode that is on the list and all it does is give me that error message every time. Other people have managed to get the program working, so i know it does work on windows 7, but i can't see to get it to work for me. Help?

Flash Player

I have vista on one of my computers and for some reason, it tells me i need to install flash player when i try to watch videos. Even after i install the new flash player, it doesn't recognize it, and once again prompts me to install it. The only way i have found around it is to re-install the browser. Afterwards, everything works fine until i start the computer next time. Then the process starts again. Why do i have to re-install the browser to get it to recognize the flash player?  I have tried several different browsers with the same results (iexplorer, avant, orca, etc).

Javascript And Flash Player

Two days ago my vista ultimate machine worked fine on youtube and other sites for viewing video. Yesterday, when i visited the site and later the youtube site, i got the following message:

Hello, you either have javascript turned off or an old version of adobe's flash player. Get the latest flash player.

I loaded the latest flash player and this made no difference. After checking here in the forums i found a couple threads that led me to the help page for script enabling. I followed those proceedures to no avail. My first question is how do i fix this. My second question would be, what happened two days ago?

Cannot Use Adobe Flash Player On Ie

Using windows xp home edition sp2 on ie8. I begin. It was all working fine until either an upgrade to ie8 or when switching from avast free to avast license. Following reference from various forums, i downloaded and saved from adobe the uninstall and install files as attempting to directly install from adobe site did nothing. Not much success, even when disabling all from the tray and disabling av. Finally, used file hippo and downloaded version 10. 1. 51. 66. When i check on adobe version test the site asks to run add on. 'adobe flash player 10. 1d51'

When confirmed it sees the player as the correct version and names the operating system as xp. When i go to manage add ons shockflash object is there. Double click it and the remove all sites button is highlighted. I click on this to allow all sites and close. However, try you tube and it dont work. Go to, for instance, club penguin and its looking for a flash player.come out of ie, try again and shock flash object is not in the currently loaded add ons, back to adobe version test and again its looking to run the previous add on that i've just allowed for all websites!

Please help. Easy solution is to use firefox, which works perfectly fine but ie is essential for home schooling do i have an active x problem?Internet security settings seem ok. Using avg free as av

Flash Player Problem

I recently got (for christmas) an acer aspire laptop with windows 7 home premium. Everything seemed to be working fine - youtube, game sites, etc. Suddenly, it stopped working. I'm assuming that because i cannot do anything that needs  flash player, that maybe adobe came out with a new version of flash player or something, in which case i would need to download it.

After quite a few hours of research, i encountered something over and over about how you couldn't get flash player on a 64 bit operating system. I'm so confused. I read something on that said i could use flash player on a 32 bit browser on my 64 bit system, but the only available step by step instructions were for xp or vista. Does no one care about glitches with windows 7?

Can't Run Flash Player

Can't run flash player. My system says i running 256 bit version and in control panel system reports 64 bit version. In order to run flash player i must, as i have been instructed by adobe, convert my systems windows 7 to the 32 bit version. When i look at the blue question mark in my ie toolbar (right hand corner) it says i have the 256 bit version.

But when i go to the control panel under system, it says i have the 64 bit version. In any case, the instructions for flash player on 64-bit operating system says i must have the 32 bit version for windows 7 running. How do i get the 32 bit version operating on my system so i can install flash player correctly?

Flash Player Does Not Work With Gadgets

Windows 7 professional 64bit desktop internet explorer 8 64bit add-on shockwave flash object not available. Therefore, flash player does not work with gadgets because desktop gadgets utilizes internet explorer 8 64bit rather then the 32bit version of interenet explorer. Two points: on the programs tab in internet options while in internet explorer (64-bit) it states: "internet explorer (64-bit) cannot be the default browser. " Internet explorer (32-bit) is set as my default browser.

Ie8 And Adobe Flash Player

I work on windows xp family. I've already installed adobe flash and macromedia players on my computer. Other browsers (chrome and firefox) work fine. But when i try to open a video clip, youtube for eg, in ie8, it displays a message that i need to install flash player. When i try to install again the later, the activex control warning message remains unresponsive on click and short while later, ie freezes showing the message that the site wants to install a module that can hurt your computer.

Leaving no means to install the player! Ultimately, i am brought to close ie through the task manager. I've uninstalled and re-installed ie8, but the same result!I wonder if ie has got any problem with the flash player? Or is there something that i am missing?Thanks for the reply.

Adobe Flash Player Install

I looked at the site below but cannot install flash. I just got this computer and straight out of the box there are several features we could access on our old machine but cannot now and i think it is because of flash. Like i said i tried all the steps below (really! - Come-on!) And no luck. http://social. ollymax, you're not running 64-bit windows 7 are you? From the adobe flash player download page, you're downloading (saving) the installer, not running it (from the website) right?

Try this:
1. From internet options> security> internet zone, click on the default level button.
2. You still have the flash uninstaller and installer files saved on the desktop, right?
3. Restart in safe mode. Right click the flash uninstaller and run as administrator.

Start vista or windows 7 in safe mode Mspx

4. Restart into safe mode again.
5. Run the flash installer as administrator.
6. Restart.
7. From ie> tools> manage add-ons, make sure that the shockwave flash object is enabled.
8. Test flash player at http://kb2.
9. If unsuccessful, check steps 3 and 4 at http://kb2.

Adobe Flash Player Failure

For months i have tried everything i could find on the internet to successfully load and play adobe flash player 10 in windows 7. I am not the only one. There are numerous complaints on the internet defining the problem and offering solutions, none of which works. I did find one that said that windows 7 simply does not recognize adobe flash player 10. It seems every video on the web is based on the adobe flash player. My question is why hasn't microsoft responded to the numerous complaints and offer a quick fix?

How to get the flash player for my new gateway 64 bit computer. Is there any option available? I'm having alot of difficulties viewing things that are important without it.

Anyway, if you could please help me out, i would greatly appreciate it!

Instant Shutdown Using Flash Player

I upgraded to windows 7 professional 32-bit a couple months ago from windows xp on my gateway laptop. I don't know why my computer keeps shutting down everytime i play either a video or games mainly using adobe flash player. This always happens while doing any flash applets, surfing the web, and playing games on my computer. It will freeze up for about a second and then just shut off completely to immediate power off.

It won't even allow me to restart right after it shut downs. The computer will act like it's going to restart & then shut down again a few times. I have to wait about 10-15 minutes to be able to restart it. I have uninstalled & reinstalled flash player, restored the computer to a previous state, made sure that all my drivers are updated & even tried to the system recovery/troubleshoot in windows 7. This only started after i upgraded.
