Flash Player and Windows 7

OK.  I also have the issue with Flash Player seeming to download and install but not work.   I checked the activex addons and it shows up.  I can't find a directory anywhere even after changing the settings to show all.
And if this is not annoying enough I have the same problem w shockwave.
I realize that w W7  I'm missing something  but with all the reorganization I can't find things.
Suggestions please.
I did find in control panel a selection called default programs and under that a selection which is associate file extentions w programs
I see that .swf is for shockwave flash player but it labeled as unknown app.  It appears that I can set that but first have to find the programs.    even after setting file options to show hidden files I could not find  either the shockwave or flash player
Well I am not sure if I have progress or regression....  I deinstalled it all.  then reinstalled shockwave.  It said I needed to reboot to complete the install.  I let it....  no shockwave.  I went back out to the installation and tried again and it says I need to reboot to complete the install.  I've gone round this loop 4 times.   I checked in the registry for anything adobe and only found reader.
I guessl neither shockwave nor flash player  is compatible w W 7  yet

well after 3-4 reboots it says it's installed... again... but still does not work.  I found another thread here that said it should be under windows/system32/Macromed/ ...  something..   I don't have the directory Macro anything directory.

First.  IE has entries for the flash player and shockwave.  The Java level I have is JAVA 6 update 14
Second.  Both the flash player and shockwave are installed according to Programs and Features on the control panel.
Third:  There is no Macromed directory under system23.  I did find one under:  c:\windows\SysWOW64.  The Macromed directory does have a Flash directory with 4 files.  Flash10d.ocx, FlashUtil10d.exe, an install log and uninstall_activeX.exe
Fourth.  The control panel has a selection called: Default programs.  when I click on that I see a selection that allows me to associate a file type with a program.  In that list  .swf is not associated w anything.    Since .swf files are not associated w the flash player should I associate them with the flash player?
I have no problem w updating Java to update 18.  I am reluctant to delete the older version though as I have encounterd programs in the past which won't run with newer ones.

  • Are Flash Player and Windows 7 compatible?

    I own an ACER Iconia W500 tablet with Windows 7 Home Premium and Adobe Flash Player preinstalled. I am having problems with Aero Peek, which I suspect can be somehow related to Flash Player.
    From time to time the Aero Peek button in the lower right corner of the screen begins to flash, initerimitently, and closes all open windows. When this happens a small white circle flashes from the corner, as attracting the cursor to the button, and when I carry the cursor with the mouse to the center and release the mouse button the cursor returns to the corner and closes the windows. Sometimes, when this is happening, a popup springs from the button asking to update Adobe Flash Player. This is the reason to suspect of it.
    I disabled Aero Peek, both from the taskbar and the control panel, and things go better, but the problem persists from time to time. I also uninstalled (?) Flash Player, but when I enter
    I get "You have version installed". So it is not uninstalled.
    I don't know what more to do.
    Could you try to help me, please?
    Thank you. Have a nice day!

    Which browser did you use to browse to the flash version page?
    Chrome browser uses a different Flash Player plugin as compare to Firefox and IE, try browsing to the same page with the other browser.
    Update your Flash Player to the latest version and see if the update notification still persist.

  • Flash player and windows 8

    Dear Community- I have recently bought a new computer with windows 8. We have had problems accessing websites that require Flash to play games like cbeebies. I have downloaded flash but when i check the version number it informs me that a) it is not enabled and b) flash is integrated in internet explorer. Still it doesn't work. I have switched off Actice X filtering and I have ensured the shockwave flash object is enabled. Still no joy..any suggestions?

    Running IE11... sorry to hear that. To say it's garbage would be an insult to garbage everywhere. It's been a "rolling train wreck" since they released it October 18. The loonballs in Redmond, WA intentionally screwed up the "User-Agent Strings", which websites use to identify the browser and provide the proper content for it. They did this, thinking it would be cool to outsmart the web designer of the world.
    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. In fact, I'm pretty sure they fully intend to leave things the way they are now.
    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.

  • Was it a mistake to uninstall Flash Player from Windows 8?

    I have a Lenovo Y580 Laptop with IE10 windows 8.  I was not able to view embedded videos on websites and searched the problem online.  Somewhere I ran in to information about glitches with Flash Player and Windows 8.  I found instructions on how to delete Flash Player files from Windows 8 using a combination of the steps on the websites below.  Now I am able to view embedded videos but I don't understand exactly what I did/whether I will have issues in the future due to deleting Flash.  Now when I type in the search box for Flash Player it shows a Flash Player 32 Bit Flash Settings Manager.  Im confused as to what I deleted and what the cons to this may be as  I am not super computer savvy

    Flash Player is integrated with Internet Explorer in Windows 8. It's unnecessary to install or uninstall Flash Player.
    Since you have uninstalled, you may want to look at this document for reinstalling Flash Player: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/flash-player-issues-windows-8.html

  • Windows 8.1 not recognizing Adobe Flash Player and Adobe help not helpful

    I have a new laptop with Windows 8.1 64 bit. I tried to view a video and it said I did not have flash player. I went to download adobe flash player and your website said I had it intergrated into 8.1 and that it was either disabled, not the right version or that active X filters needed to be clear. I followed all instructions. Flash was installed with the 8.1 64 bit version. Flash was enabled for all websites and I cleared the active X filter and I still get told that I don't have install flash because it is intergrated and but it does not work. Please help I am in a cycle where Adobe is not helping just sending me in a circle. Thank you

    Your problems aren't with Adobe or Flash Player. They're with Internet explorer 11 and Microsoft.
    IE11 (Windows 7, 8 & 8.1) has been an abomination since its release October 18, 2013. Yahoo, Facebook, BBC, ESPN and dozens of other sites and domains have had trouble recognizing the Browser. If the site doesn't recognize the browser, it won't recognize any plugins in the browser, including Flash Player. Microsoft was made aware of the problems by millions of users within hours of the release, and so far they've shown no sign that they intend to fix it anytime soon. Their recommendation is to enable Compatibility View for affected pages. Two problems with that are that it's had only limited success, and you must enable it manually for each affected page. Basically, they're telling you to "pretend" you're not using IE11.
    I'm not big on "pretending", and I recommend actually using something different. Something that works where IE11 won't.
    Firefox (from Mozilla)
    Chrome (from Google)
    Safari (from Apple)
    Opera (from Opera)
    ANY of those will work where IE isn't recognized, and they use the Flash Player Plug-in (for other browsers), except for Chrome, which has its own plugin embedded in by Google.

    I had installed flash player on Window 8.1 for 32 bit and now I have to change it to 64 bit.

    I don't understand what you are saying: you change Windows to 64-bit?
    Just reinstall Flash Player, and it will automatically install both 32-bit and 64-bit players on a 64-bit system.

  • Adobe Flash Player and Shockwave crashing has disabled my computer

    I have downloaded a second flash player and it is still the same. Firefox has been crashing daily for a few weeks. I noticed that your adblocker plus was updated 6/4. Since then I have almost no use of firefox, because the Adobe flash player 13.0.r0 and Shockwave crash notices are constantly popping up. Could that update have something to do with why the flash players are not working? Below are an example of the crash details.
    Thanks for the help. I prefer your browser, but this has made it non-functioning.
    In trying to fix it, a window came up that asked would I like to change it back to a previous working image, which was Windows XP. Although this computer is Windows 7, I clicked the box yes, and said I wanted it to work like Windows XP. I see in your Operating System below, that it reads Windows Xp, but this computer is actually Windows 7. I can't find that menu to change unclick and change it back, so that it is working as Windows 7.

    If that doesn't work try Try to disable Protected Mode in Flash 11.3 and above by adding the line ProtectedMode=0 to the Flash "mms.cfg" file located in one of these locations: [46]
    (Windows 32bit) C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash
    (Windows 64bit) C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash
    For example, on a Windows 7 64-bit system, open the C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash folder, copy the file "mms.cfg" to the desktop, open it in Notepad, add a new line <code>ProtectedMode=0 </code> and then close Notepad, saving your changes. Next, go back to the C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash folder, rename the original file to "mms.cfgBAK" (to save it as a backup) and then drag and drop in the modified "mms.cfg" file from the desktop. [47] [48] [49]
    Note: To re-enable Flash Protected Mode, either restore a backup of the original mms.cfg file, if you saved one, or else re-edit the mms.cfg file to remove the <code>ProtectedMode=0 l</code> line you added. Updating Flash Player or installing a newer version does not automatically re-enable Protected Mode
