Flash 10.2 not working in Windows 7 IE8 despite 'successful' installation

Hi there,
I downloaded flash player to attempt to view flash media on sites such as bbc website and youtube.
Despite the installation claiming to be successful, I still cannot view video on any sites I have tried.
(bbc website says I don't have the correct version, youtube says I need to upgrade)
My system details are as follows:
Windows 7 Home Premium, 32-bit operating system
Internet Explorer 8.0.7600.16385IC  (it makes no mention of being 64-bit)
Flash Player 10.2.152.26
I have tried following the troubleshooting guides on the adobe website, particularly 'Flash player does not work in Windows 7'
but I have not managed to fix the problem.
I've also gone through several threads on this forum, relating to similar problems, but I'm sorry I haven't been able to fix it.
So far, the stuff I have tried is listed below, but since it has not worked, I assume I have done something incorrectly, missed something,
or I have not yet found the right solution.
The Flash Player does not appear on my programs list, but it does show up in the control panel/list of installed programs.
I don't know how to get flash player to run on its own, so I can't access settings etc. for the hardware acceleration.
The folder located at C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash contains 5 files:
Flash10m.ocx; FlashInstall.log ; FlashUtil10m_ActiveX.dll; FlashUtil10m_ActiveX.exe; install.log
When I visit the adobe page for testing flash player, it does not show me any animation; there is a blank white rectangle with a tiny red 'X' in its top left corner, which I assume should be a box containing the version information if the player had been recognized.
I have looked at the IE8 'tools/Manage Add-Ons - 'show' All Add Ons, and there is no listing of  'Shockwave  Flash Object'
although there is a listing of   'shockwave activeX control' which is enabled.
I've set my IE8 security settings to medium for the categories of 'Trusted Sites' and 'Internet' and I've made sure to set:
'Download Signed ActiveX Controls' to 'Prompt'  and 'Run ActiveX Controls And Plug-ins' to 'Enable'
I've tried unintalling the flash player using the specified tool, removing the adobe download tool, and manual re-installation.
Finally, I tried (with much hesitation) to modify the registry key referred to in the Flash-Killer or 'kill-bit' guidlines.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ActiveX Compatibility\{D27CDB6E-AE6D-11CF-96B8-444553540000}
The key existed, with a Name: compatibility flags  ; Type: REG_DWORD  ; Data: 0x0000400 (1024)
So I changed the value from 400 to 000 as suggested.
This is not worked either, despite uninstalling flash player, re-booting and re-installing.
Finally, I updated the graphics driver for my ATI RADEON HD 5670 card, but aside from scaring me by drastically altering the screen resolution and not allowing me to roll back the driver, it has unfortunately not solved the flash player problem.
I appreciate that the people with expertise have given loads of help on this problem, I hope I haven't missed something important when following the advice, but I'm pretty stuck, so if anyone can help, I thank you very much.
thanks,
pad

Hi eidnolb,
unfortunately, the installation of FP 9.0.280 based on running flashplayer9r280_winax.exe has not worked:
I cannot see the animation / spinning, there is no animation and no box showing the version.
(I have included a partial screenshot in this message, file name flashplayer_test_screenshot.jpg)
Therefore, I did not continue with the instructions.
The control panel list of programs does show 'Adobe Flash Player ActiveX' as being installed, version 9.0.280.0
There were no messenger utilites listed in the system tray.
As you advised, the first thing I did was to modify the {D27CDB6E-AE6D-11CF-96B8-444553540000} registry key value from 400 to 000.
After modifying the value by making it Zero, I re-started the computer.
Regarding Administrator Account, I looked on ther 'User Accounts' information, and there is only one user, my dad, and he is listed as Administrator.
Sorry, but I will need to ask for your further advice. In case it is useful, I tried to get a list of all processes that were running on the computer
(in case some of them inhibit the installation. most of them don't mean anything to me, even when they are given a description by the windows 7 Task Manager Processes List - I have pasted the text file below in this post, since I couldnt see how to attach files.)
thank you for your help,

  • SCORM (flash Player Content) not working on Windows Server 2012 R2 which has IE11 integrated installed on it.

    Hi Everyone,
    I have website which contains SCORM package, installed on Windows Server 2012 R2 which has IE11 installed on it.
    Flash Player is also embedded with IE.
    IE Version:  11.0.9600.17278.
    Updated Version: 11.0.12 (KB2977629)
    When I launch SCORM (flash Player Content) from my application, it is not working. It just displays a blank page however the Title of IE is set to the text from the SCORM content.
    However if I access the same URL from any other machine which has previous version of Windows OS (i.e. previous to Windows 8 OS), it is working as expected on IE9, IE10 and IE11.
    While trying to find out the cause, I came across some forum which says we have to install the “Desktop Experience” on the server to enable the inbuilt flash player. After doing that also, My SCORM contents are not getting displayed.
    To find out more details, I have uploaded the SCORM Package on SCORM Cloud to check if it is working there. Here again the same problem, it doesn’t work and displays
    error message saying that “Member is not found” and when I tried to find out the location of the error then it is coming at
    Windows.document.myFlash.setVariable(…) method on the Windows Server 2012 R2 with IE11.  
    When I performed “Addwatch”, it is saying that Windows.document.myFlash doesn’t have setVariable(…) method.
    However if access the same cloud URL from other machine (Having OS previous to Windows 8 OS), it is working as expected.
    I have attached the screenshot of the error.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Hello,
    I'd ask the SCORM package provider or in Microsoft's  ASP.Net forums:
    http://forums.asp.net/
    As Microsoft's ASP.Net forums are on a different platform, we cannot move the question for you.

  • Flash player will not work with Windows Vista?

    I installed flash player but had to uninstall it after I did an update as my Pc would not work properly. Does anyone know which version will work please. Thanks.

    I have a machine with Vista Ultimate SP2 and Flash Player 11.8.800.94 and it works as it should.
    What exactly does "my PC would not work properly" mean?

  • Flash player is not working with windows 8.1 and ie11

    I am so tired of the message to remove active x or enable flash player. On windows 8.1 the next message is that flash player is embedded in 8.1. I also have ie 11 and had to load Google Chrome because my Media Player does not gee haw with 8.1. If I had not bought a new PC with 8 loaded believe me I would still have windows 7 or the windows 2010 Home and Student. Tell me please what to do.

    IE11 is a "Rolling Train Wreck". Combined with 8.1 it is, without a doubt, the worst pile of garbage to EVER come out of Redmond, WA.
    MS deliberately altered the "User-Agent Strings" to make it nearly IMPOSSIBLE for pages and sites to ID it. (See: IE11's Screwed up User-Agent Strings)
    The pages can't recognize the browser, so they don't recognize any of the plugins, like Flash Player. So far, Microsoft has made NO indication that they have any plan to fix it soon.
    Microsoft's recommendation is to use Compatibility View for affected pages, and "pretend" you're using an different browser. Trouble with that is it has seen limited success at best, and you have to individually enable it for EVERY page that has problems.
    I'm not big on "pretending" so I recommend actually using another browser.
    Firefox (from Mozilla)
    Opera (from Opera)
    Safari (from Apple)
    Chrome (from Google)
    ANY of those will work where IE11 won't, with the Flash Player Plug-in (For all other browsers), and Chrome doesn't even need that because it has its own Flash Player plugin built in.

  • Flash not working on Windows 8.1

    My flash player is not working on windows 8.1 (64g) with internet explorer. I have troubleshooted several times, and active x filtering is not checked off in the safety tab under settings and under manage add-ons shockwave flash is enabled. These are the only things that I can do to get it enabled according to the adobe website. What else can I do to make flash work on windows 8 in internet explorer?

    First, confirm that ActiveX Filtering is configured to allow Flash content:
    https://forums.adobe.com/thread/867968
    Internet Explorer 11 introduces a number of changes both to how the browser identifies itself to remote web servers, and to how it processes JavaScript intended to target behaviors specific to Internet Explorer. Unfortunately, this means that content on some sites will be broken until the content provider changes their site to conform to the new development approach required by modern versions of IE.
    You can try to work around these issues by using Compatibility View:
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/internet-explorer/use-compatibility-view#ie=ie-11
    If that is too inconvenient, using Google Chrome may be a preferable alternative.

  • Flash player does not work properly on Windows 7 32 bits

    Hello,
    My flash player does not work properly on Windows 7 32 bits with Firfox and IE8 (lasts versions).
    My Flash player version : 10.0.45.2, but I tried with version 9 too, with same problems.
    I have tried to uninstall, reboot, reinstall several times, ... witch did not worked.
    In fact, it works correctly on some sites, like youtube, but not on some others like :
    http://www.dailymotion.com/ => black screen instead of videos, right click gives flash context menu
    http://www.canalplus.fr/ => videos does not load, right click gives flash context menu
    http://www.myspace.com/ => no audio player, right click gives flash context menu
    some games in http://www.kongregate.com/ => black screen instead of games, right click gives flash context menu
    I have no problem with shockwave in http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/welcome/
    No problem too with flash player on http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/
    But in the Global Privacy Settings panel (http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager02.htm l), I cannot change any settings :
    I cannot check boxes,
    My changes are not saved.
    In most of flash animations, videos, ...,
    when I click on parameters, I cannot do anything, even closing.
    when I am in full screen mode, the message "press escape to exit...." does not disappear.
    Last thing, all those problems was not there when I was on Windows XP, few weeks ago, and appear with my registered Windows 7 premium familly edition, with the same hardware configuration...
    Thank you for your help

  • Flash Player will NOT work in useless Windows 8.1

    I am now regretting upgrading to Windows 8.1 Flash Player (even after following ALL of the reccomended fixes on the forums) will NOT work in Windows 8.1 It is now clear that there is no official fix for this - if there was, Microsoft would put out an update which would fix the problem. As such, we are left with a bunch of patched-together "maybe this will work" unofficial fixes - of which none work.
    As with many others with this problem, I have Windows 8.1, 64 bit system with IE 11. Yes, I have the latest flash player installed. Yes, I can see the bouncing ball or whatever the hell it is in the grey box.. or the clouds moving in the other box. Yes, Shockwave in enabled in manage add-ons. Yes, ActiveX Filtering is not checked under Safety. I have gone through this checklist so many times, my head is spinning. The most annoying part when I "test" to see if the latest Flash version is installed (sigh, of course it is) is this message: "You aren't running IE in Windows 8" Well duuhhh. Of course I'm not. I just upgraded to your stupid 8.1 platform.
    So is somebody asleep at the switch at Microsoft? They roll out 8.1 and screw everybody who installs it when it doesn't work properly with Flash? Shouldn't they have tested this first? Why hasn't this problem been fixed yet? It is apparent that I'm not the only one who is frustrated beyond the point of seeing white at this incompetence.
    Does anyone know if there is a fix coming out for this outrageous error? Or shall we all just sit back and twiddle our thumbs like the gang at Microsoft?

    The problem isn't with Flash Player... It's with Internet Exploder. Pages and sites can't recognize the browser, so there's no way imaginable that they'll recognize the plugins in the browsewr they can';t recognize in the first place.  Microsoft is (and has been) aware of this problem, and their response is one of denial that would make the Obama adminsitration jealous.
    "There's nothing wrong with the browser, it's the entire Internet that's messed up." or "It can't be our browser, it's 3.5 billion users' computers that have the problem."
    Microsoft says to use "Compatibility View" and pretend you're using something else. I could never stand Microsoft's 110% pure garbage excuse for a browser, and have ALWAYS used something else.
    Firefox (from Mozilla)
    Opera (from Opera)
    Safari (from Apple)
    Chrome (from Google)
    ANY of those will work where IE11 won't, with the Flash Player Plug-in (For all other browsers), and Chrome doesn't even need that because it has its own Flash Player plugin built in.
    Free yourself from Microsoft. You won't regret it.

  • Flash Player is not working on any browser in Windows 8

    Flash Player is not Working on internet explorer, or chrome, or firefox...
    I have tryed some processes that I have found in this and other forums like not filtering activex, changing internet options, deleting browser data, deleting flash saved data, uninstalling flash, re-installing flash...
    uninstalling browsers, reinstalling, uninstalled the antivirus, re-installed it, installed another, disabiling it, nothing works.
    When you enter a site using flash, such as youtube, every browser shows the control but not the video, then crashes and shows a message indicatin that flash is not responding, and sometimes saying that a script is not responding either...

    Also, I'd appreciate some more detailed information on your system.
    Open a command line, and type the following:
    dxdiag
    Hit enter, and it will launch the DirectX diagnostic tool.
    Choose Save All Information and choose a location.  Open it with a text editor and just copy the contents to a reply here.
    Thanks!

  • Some Flash Builder 4 shortcuts not working on Windows 7

    Hi all,
    Some of the shortcuts are not working in Windows 7.
    E.G. Ctrl + Space does nothing.
    Anyone have a solution?

    Hi Jason,
    Here is an example:
    Window > Preferences > General > Keys
    If I select the command "Content Assist" in the list, the Binding is Ctrl+Space.
    This shortcut/binding does not work in the editor, and if I remove that binding and try and set it again by pressing Ctrl+Space, the binding does not appear in the binding field.
    If I press Shift+Space, that works, and I can use that binding ok for Content Assist.

  • Flash Player does not work with Standard User, but will work when browser is "Run as Administrator"

    I don't understand why this is happening, but Flash Player will not work when a Standard User is using the browser. It will only work when the browser is run as an administrator. Any way to fix this? I've tried to uninstall, and reinstall the player, and it still wouldn't work.
    The user is on Windows 7, 64-bit. Using IE 10.
    Flash not working for Standard User - YouTube

    Any update to provide at all here guys?  Again, in my situation, it's very much rights-related as a standard user doesn't even report that the flash player exists when testing it on the Adobe Flash Version Detection website (despite it showing up in Control Panel and under Add/Remove Programs).  I've already tried giving the C:\Windows\System32\Macromed and files/subfolders appropriate permissions for the standard user and still nothing.  If I either give the user in question full local admin rights or logon as the domain admin, then the Adobe Flash Version Detection website says Flash is installed and Flash works fine.
    Thoughts???

  • Flash Player does not work after steps to resolution

    I am using Windows 8.1 and flash player will not work.  I have "enabled" and removed Active X control as per instructions but it still does not work.

    8.1 means Ie11... and that means...
    "User-Agent Strings"
    That doesn't mean a lot, I'm sure, but it's the root of your problems, and Flash Player has nothing to do with it.
    Microsoft "rewrote" the User-Agent Strings for the abomination they call their latest and greatest browser. User-Agent Strings are what websites use to identify the browser you're using and provide the proper content for it's browser engine, like ActiveX stuff, and Flash or HTML5 video. Thanks to the geniuses in Redmond, WA, the User-Agent Strings for IE11 (which has a Trident engine), ID it as either "Gecko" (Firefox) or "Webkit" (Chrome). Problem is: when the site the directs to the content for one of these two engines, the Trident engine in IE can't intepret it and the site then sees IE as an "unidentified" browser.
    The problem with an unidentified browser is that the plug-ins in that browser aren't recognized either, so even though you're up to date, it says you need the latest Flash Player when you use IE11. YouTube... has converted to HTML5 video so if it doesn't detect Flash Player, it can display HTML5 (MP4) video which requires no plug-in to play. Facebook can't do that, because HTML5 doesn't apply to games... only video.
    Microsoft has no plans to "fix" the mess thay've created because they think it's a great idea to block you out of the websites you visit.
    They recommend using "Compatibility View" and pretending that you're using an older verison of IE... Problem with that is that it's seen limited success, and you have to enable it for EVERY page that has problems... individually.
    I'm not big on "pretending" so I recommend actually using another browser.
    Firefox (from Mozilla)
    Opera (from Opera)
    Safari (from Apple)
    Chrome (from Google)
    ANY of those will work where IE11 won't, with the Flash Player Plug-in (For all other browsers), and Chrome doesn't even need that because it has its own Flash Player plugin built in.

  • Flash player does not work under one user account.

    Flash player does not work under one of my user accounts.
    My system: I work with a mac mini with Mac OS X 10.6.8.
    What I have done:
    I installed the flash player maybe one year ago under my "first" user account. At that time this user account had had administrator authorization. In the meantime I had to change this "first" user account in an account without administrator authorization and created an administrator user with which I installed different programms. Lately, the message came up that it would be necessary to update the flash player. I did it; under the "first" user account, but of course with the administrator's password for installing. The installation had been "successful" - so I was told. But it did not run. I tried it again and again. Each time with "deinstallation" first. No way; it did not work.
    After asking Adobe for the reason of the problem, they suggested to install the programm directly under the administrator user. I did that (of course after deinstalling under the "first" user account) with the result, that flash player runs under my administrator and my "second" user account, but not under the first user account. There I am always told to update my flash player.
    With this result, I talked to Adobe. So they told me to contact the producer of the operating software, since this would be a mistake of the operating software.
    And here I am - full of hope to get help from you.
    Thanks for reading. And thanks in advance for helping me.

    Any update to provide at all here guys?  Again, in my situation, it's very much rights-related as a standard user doesn't even report that the flash player exists when testing it on the Adobe Flash Version Detection website (despite it showing up in Control Panel and under Add/Remove Programs).  I've already tried giving the C:\Windows\System32\Macromed and files/subfolders appropriate permissions for the standard user and still nothing.  If I either give the user in question full local admin rights or logon as the domain admin, then the Adobe Flash Version Detection website says Flash is installed and Flash works fine.
    Thoughts???
