When I try to download Adobe Flash Player it keeps failing to initialize. Help please

I don,t know what else to say other than I have tried up to 20 times, I have tried to Google the problem and I am desperate. Thanks Tony

There are 2 versions of Adobe Flash; an '''ActiveX version''' for IE only and a '''Plugin version''' for most other browsers including Firefox. On a Windows system, you should always update both individually. '''''You do not have the Plugin version installed for Firefox.'''''
#'''Using Firefox''', go to the following direct download link and SAVE the download to your desktop so you can find it later: http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player.exe
#When the download is finished, close Firefox (File > Exit '''''OR''''' Firefox button > Exit)
#Click or double-click on the file you just saved to your desktop
#*In the installation window that appears, click the box to the left of "I have read and...." to place a check mark in the box
#*The "Install" button in the lower right corner will now be highlighted, click it.
#*The installation is quick.
#Start Firefox and test your installation here: https://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/
#Direct link ActiveX version for IE '''''only''''': http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player_ax.exe
''NOTE: A new version of Adobe Flash was released today, 08-09-2011 (both Plugin and ActiveX)''

    When I try to download Adobe Flash Player, it says I need to quit out of Safari even when it's closed. How do I fix this?

    Apologies for the slightly pedantic answer, but in application terms, "closed" and "quit" are two different things. An application such as Safari can have several windows open, and each of them can be closed using the red button in the corner.
    However, even after all windows are closed, the application is still running until you specifically quit it. You can tell it's still running by the small light under its icon in the Dock. If you hold your cursor down on the icon for a few seconds, you should see a pop up menu with the "Quit" option - click that to quit it. Or, click the icon once (this may launch a new window), then either go to the Safari menu and click Quit, or click cmd-Q, to completely quit the app.

    Ziatron is correct that Flash does not work on an iPad, but it does work on a Mac. See Adobe Flash Player 11.2.202.160.

    My mac keeps asking for a password when I try to install adobe flash player. Even with the hint I'm not getting it and also tried uninstall and the same thing occurred.

    It's referring to the MAC password that you have setup.
    A software prompts for a password only when there are restrictions set on the user account for unauthorised access to system files and folders.

  • When i try to download latest flash player i am redirected to adobe home page.

    I am in a circle. I got message to update flash, yet when I click "download" i am automaticlly redirected back to adobe home page.  I removed flash player and tried to downoad again but still get into this merry-go-round of home page-download page (Adobe.ca)
    any ideas why?

    This is happening a lot lately. With OS X Mavericks and Windows 8.1
    Download the Adobe Flash Player installer directly by clicking one of the following links.
    Flash Player for ActiveX (Internet Explorer)
    Flash Player Plug-in (All other browsers)
    Flash Player (Mac OS X)

  • Error Message When try to Download Adobe Flash Player 10.3.181.34

    I'm trying to download the Adobe Flash Player Adobe Flash Player 10.3.181.34.  Using Explorer 9 and I have a 32bit operating system.  At about 80% complete, I get the following error message: " The download did not pass the integrity check (162103.304.450)." Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

    Hi, that message is due to the Download Manager(DLM). It's best not to use it. Use the link the poster provided and SAVE it to your Desktop. Then close all browser windows, disable any instant messenger services from your system tray. It may be better to download the Uninstaller and SAVE it to your Desktop first. Then run it, reboot and then run the Installer and reboot.
    If you have any realtime Anti-Virus running, you may want to disable it until you are finished.
    Uninstaller:  http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/141/tn_14157.html
    Use the EXE Installer for Windows and Internet Explorer.
    That should work better for you,

    I would recommend utilizing the Adobe Support Advisor - http://www.adobe.com/support/loganalyzer/ to automatically review your installation log and attempt to locate a solution.  The summary you posted is not always complete so a look at the actual log itself would be beneficial.
    If you would like to review the installation log file yourself then Troubleshoot CS5 and CS5.5 installation with install logs - http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/844/cpsid_84451.html provides guidence on how this can be accomplished.

  • I get "failed to initialize" when I try to download Adobe Flash

    I un-  installed my previous version because I was having trouble loading farmville. I used the adobe uninstaller not remove programs. I can't reinstall the latest version in either Firefox or explorer. I have windows XP. I downloaded the Adobe support and it found nothing wrong. Help please.

    I don't understand any of this - I don't know what install_flashplayer10_chrd_aih.exe is; I don't know what Geardownload.com is; I don't know what mssd is...

  • Issue Downloading Adobe Flash Player

    Operating system version - Mac OSX Version 10.9.5
    Web browser and version - Safari Version 7.1
    I do not have any version of the Adobe Flash Player currently installed on my computer.
    When I try to download the flash player, the file goes to my downloads.  When I click on the download, it will only open the file using MatLab.  What can I do to fix this issue so the file will go to its downloader?

    I fixed the problem using Google Chrome to download the file instead of Safari.

  • Safari cannot download adobe flash player

    when i try to view tv programs on my 2nd generation ipod touch i'm informed that the adobe flash player is needed. when i try to download the flash player i get the error message that safari cannot download the file. what might be causing that problem and what can be done about it?

    then why does apple advertise that videos can be downloaded and viewed on the touch?
    Because it's true.
    Flash is only one of the many video formats available online. The iPod touch supports many open video formats (they are listed on the specifications page).
    Flash is a proprietary format owned by Adobe - it is not an open standard.
    You can view videos, films, music videos etc. from the iTunes Store, and also any web-site that uses the standard MP4 format. There are also 1000's of videos in the YouTube application. You can also convert your own videos and view them on the iPod touch.
