    Cannot install flash player in Windows Vista

    Recently I have received updated version of flash player. When I tried to install the new software in my system, which runs in Windows Vista, it did not work. What should be done in such a situation?

    Hi friend,
    Don't worry!

    I will suggest you first Reboot your system.
    Then try installing the updated version of Flash Player using IE.
    If you are using Firefox,then this might the reason why you're not able to install the flash player as Firefox starts considering as a plug-in.

    If it still don't work,then you need to empty the Temporary Files and try out again.


    Best of Luck!

    Dear Friend!!
    Its a regular query that Flash player gives error while downloading or installing..
    If your flash player is not getting downloaded easily,you can get it from the official site of adobe.
    else you should get a shockwave player which works same as flash form this site- www.adobe.com/shockwave/download
    /alternates/

    Or you can also download flash player form http://www.cnet.com

    Hello dude,

    1) Make Sure your old versions of the flash players are uninstalled.
    Start -> Control Panel -> View by Small icons(Right Top Side) -> Click Programs and Features -> You can uninstall your old versions of the flash players.

    2) Clean your Temporary files.
    Open Run(Press Windows + R) -> Type %temp% -> OK -> Clear all files in that Folder.

    3) Try an Offline Install.

    4) If Firefox doesn't Support, Use Internet Explorer.

    Good Luck.,
