  • Adobe flash player installer screen blank.

    Every time I try to install the latest Flash player the "Adobe Flash Player Installer" screen goes blank. I'm on mac by the way (Yosemite) "Getting installation" and the bar shows up for a split second and then dissapears. The rest of the screen is completely blank, no matter what I do. I have shut down browsers and all other relevant programs before attempting the install, so it's not that. Also, I have uninstalled flash to do a clean install, but it made no difference.
    Please help me fix this problem. I have found no help for it.. I can't believe adobes installation software is bugged like this.

    Try the offline installer:

  • Unable to install flash player. After downloading the Adobe FLash Player Installer and running it, a grey pop up window opens up but nothing is displayed in it. There is no progress bar or anything.

  • I need to uninstall Adobe Flash Player Installer/Uninstaller 14.0 r0

    I need to uninstall Adobe® Flash® Player Installer/Uninstaller 14.0 r0 but have looked everywhere for how to do this & can not find out how to do this can someone please help? I am using A Sony Vaio, Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit, I use Chrome Version 36.0.1985.143 m.
    I want to get it off of my system because ever since I installed it I have had problems with Chrome loading it does not want to load then if I restart my comptuter & I click on chrome  5 windows open up at one time a white box appears saying "Your profile can not be used because it is from a newer browser version of google chrome. Some features may be available. Please specify a different profile directory  or use a different version of chrome" then if you click ok it shuts all the windows down. I have figured a way to get one window to stay open so I can use chrome, now I do have other browser I can use but I do not like them  at all & do not have a flash player since mine is built in with Chrome. So on to the other problem that began as soon as I downloaded this & I understand it may not be this but I still want to get it off of my computer. I also have been having trouble with my flash player error messages: saying it has stopped working constantly, it says upgrade flash text, a plug in shock wave flash isn't responding then in (stop plug in) it wants you to hit.  I have run 3 different Mallware programs through my computer just in case that was one question that was going to be ask. No other programs jave been downloaded wither.
    I am not very good with computers so I have to come to places like this for help & I really have to have help explaining what to do because  do not know much about computers other then getting on them & surfing the web & some basic things. When chromes message said specify a different profile directory that went right over m head. So that should give you an idea where I am coming from. I want to thank you in advance & hope I have made sense in what I have written I tried to give all the information that I could.

    Your screenshot of task manager clarifies things.
    When I replied, I had been looking at the screenshot of the desktop from the original poster, which shows the uninstaller executable and it's properties.  That executable doesn't install anything -- it can just be dragged to the trash; however, that didn't completely align with the behaviors either of you were describing, and we've been trying to figure out what you were talking about.  It wasn't making a lot of sense to me, and it's not a question that I've seen come up before, at least not articulated this way.
    FlashUtil32_XX_XX_XX_XX.exe is the sandbox broker for Internet Explorer.  You can read more about the sandbox work here: Flash Player Security with Windows 8 and Internet Explorer 10
    The description listed in Task Manager is a bug, and the source of the confusion.  We've been doing a lot of work modernizing our build systems, and this is fallout from that work. This is something I'd like to see cleaned up, but it's pretty low on the list of priorities.
    The broker service is invoked when Internet Explorer is running in Protected Mode.  On my Windows 7 machine running IE 10, running Flash content in Internet Explorer with Protected Mode enabled causes the broker service to be invoked (this is probably true for previous versions as well, but I didn't test them).  If I disable Protected Mode and restart Internet Explorer, the broker is not invoked, which is expected.
    To disable Protected Mode, launch Internet Explorer and choose security.  Uncheck Enable Protected Mode.  Internet Explorer will restart, and you should be able to verify that the broker is no longer invoked when loading content with Flash Player.
    I've included a screenshot showing the expected processes in both scenarios below.  As the Flash Player ActiveX control is loaded into an Internet Explorer process, you'll see the child explorer.exe process listed, which hosts the Flash ActiveX control in the process list.
    Sandboxing the Flash Player plug-in is an important security mitigation intended to increase the cost of successfully developing and deploying malware.  While it's not a panacea, it significantly raises the bar for attackers.  As I'm sure you've read in the news and trade literature, the threat landscape has evolved significantly over the last few years, and modern security threats and their mitigations are a necessary reality.  New mitigations typically come with some additional processing overhead.  The overhead varies based on the architectural choices made by the particular browser vendors, but the overhead in IE is pretty reasonable.
    We haven't published a blog post specific to IE, but if you're interested in the implementation details, the sandbox architecture is similar to what we did with Protected Mode for Firefox on Windows.  The Flash Player process that handles untrusted content runs at Low Integrity, which restricts access to critical system resources in the event that you encounter malware designed to take control of the Flash Player process.  Access to system resources is negotiated through a Medium Integrity broker process.  Without Protected Mode, the Flash Player process handling untrusted content runs at Medium Integrity, making it easier for malware to escalate privileges from a hijacked process.  Depending on the functionality in play, a lot of message-passing can take place between IE, the broker and Flash Player.  We've effectively doubled the number of messages that get passed, plus put a bunch of validation checks in, and all of that consumes CPU.  It also makes your web browsing activity more secure.
    Some desktop applications (Yahoo Messenger, for example) also use the ActiveX version of Flash Player installed on your machine.  This could explain why you see Flash Player and the broker invoked unexpectedly.  We're also aware of an issue on Vista where the broker doesn't always exit as expected.  In that instance (and on WinXP), I'd highly recommend that people use Google Chrome for web browsing, as Google has extended some security mitigations that would only be available to Internet Explorer users running in newer versions of Windows, and it doesn't suffer from this specific issue with the broker.

  • Adobe Flash Player Installer/Uninstaller 11.2.r202 has encountered a problem and needs to close

    Seems that with the last 3 or 4 Flash Player updates, once the update is complete but before the installer actually exits, I get an error message box telling me that "Adobe Flash Player Installer/Uninstaller 11.2.r202 has encountered a problem and needs to close.  We are sorry for the inconvenience.", etc., etc., etc.  I've received this error message numerous times as most of the computers I work on are Windows XP SP3 (all updates) with Internet Explorer 8 as the browser, including my own computer and my wife's.  If I could copy & paste the details, I would.  But the temp file that's supposed to be created for error reporting purposes, isn't, and I'm not going to spend the next half an hour transcribing all the technical details.  I just want you to be aware there's a problem with your installer.       -kd5150-

    I'm sorry you are running into this crash.  To help investigate the problem, we'll need you to do a few things for us.
    First, add the following line to the file mms.cfg (open in Notepad)
    You can find the mms.cfg file here:
    xp, vista, and windows 7 32bit: c:\windows\system32\macromed\flash\mms.cfg
    windows 7 64bit: c:\windows\syswow64\macromed\flash\mms.cfg
    Next, we'll want to get a crash dump so we can see what's going wrong.  You can enable crash logging on Windows Vista or 7 using the following steps:
    Download the following files: Enable Crash Logging.reg and Disable Crash Logging.reg.
    Double-click the Enable Crash Logging.reg file. Click Yes in the Registry Editor dialog.
    Restart your computer.
    Let the updater/installer crash occur
    After the crash, open a file browser window and type the following in the navigation bar:%localappdata%
    Go to the CrashDump folder.
    Select the most recent file that appears with the extension .dmp.
    Double-click the Disable Crash Logging.reg file downloaded in Step 1 and click OK.
    Restart your computer.
    Zip up the .dmp file and mail it (or a dropbox link) to [email protected] with a link to this thread.
    For XP, follow these steps:
    Show hidden files.  For more details, see the instructions for Windows XP.
    Repeat the steps that resulted in the installer crash
    After the crash, open the following folder: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Dr Watson
    Locate the file named with the extension .dmp that corresponds with the correct date and time
    Zip up the .dmp file and mail it (or a dropbox link) to [email protected] with a link to this thread.
    In addition to the .dmp, please post or send me your Flash Installation.log.
    Where do I find the Flash Player installation log on Windows?

  • Question on Adobe Flash Player Installer/Uninstaller 12.0 r0

    Okay, I have windows 7 home premium 32bit installed on a dell vostro 400. I'm using 2 browsers, Internet explorer 11 and Firefox the latest version.  I have found that an installation of a plug-in and an activeX extension work in internet explorer and It's really confusing as to which one is for which sometimes.
    I need someone to to help me with Adobe® Flash® Player Installer/Uninstaller 12.0 r0.  It's causing some problems for web browser based email clients and slows down almost to a hault then won't close at all after it crashes.
    Is there any way I can clean & fix Adobe® Flash® Player Installer/Uninstaller 12.0 r0 with out removing flash cookies when using internet explorer?
    Is there any way I can have firefox block flash play from playing anything?

    First, there are two Flash Players for Windows (three if you count Chrome's PepperFlash plug-in)
    ActiveX is for IE - IE needs it because it uses 1993 ActiveX controls for security, which is not really secure at all, and complicates everything you do with IE.
    Tha standard plug-in is for Firefox, Opera, Safari and several other lesser known browsers like Maxthon and Seamonkey.
    If you use IE and another browser, you nee both, and they both need to be up to date. As Imentioned Chrome has its own which updates through the browser.
    To make sure you're up to date for both, download the following:
    Flash Player for ActiveX (Internet Explorer)
    Flash Player Plug-in (All other browsers)
    Flash Player Uninstaller
    Also, download these:
    Shockwave Player Uninstaller
    Shockwave Player 112 FULL installer (ther browsers)
    You'll need to install Shockwave with the FULL installer for IE too, but there isn't a direct download for it. You'll need to go to: using IE AFTER everything else is done.
    Save all the files and close your browser.
    Run the uninstallers first (both of them)
    Go to: C/Windows/System32
    Delete the Macromed folder.
    Open your Registry Editor (Start>Run or press the Windows key + R and type 'regedit' [minus the quotes] and click OK)
    In the Registry Editor, go to:
    Delete the Macromedia folder (Right click and choose "Delete").
    Go to:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software and delete the Macromedia folder there too.
    Close the Registry Editor and empty your recycle bin.
    Run the Flash Player installers, and then the Shockwave FULL installer you downloaded.
    Lastly, open IE and go to: to download and install the Shockwave FULL installer for ActiveX (IE).
    For Firefox, I recommend FlashBlock ( It's prevent ANY Flash content from loading until you allow it manually. It can get to be a pain, but you eventually get used to it.

  • Adobe Flash Player installer/uninstaller 10.1 r82 AND 102 has stopped working

    Hi there,
    First time I've used these forums and I am a bit computer illiterate, so apologies if I come across a bit stupid!
    I am using the following systems:
    Windows Vista (32 bits I think)
    IE 7
    Adobe / Flash v
    I was trying to install iTunes on the weekend and was having trouble, so Apple suggested I delete my Local Temp Files and all Apple apps, which I did.
    Since then, when I try to access most internet sites, I encounter the following error message:
    'Adobe Flash Player installer/uninstaller 10.1 r82 has stopped working'.  I have the option of getting Windows to check the problem or closing the problem, whichever option I select I just go round and round in circles as it keeps coming back to the same error message. As a result, I can't access most websites as the page just freezes and I eventually have to close IE.
    I understand this to be a common problem as I've done a few google searches and have come across others with the same problem and have tried various solutions without success.
    I have tried to download Adobe uninstaller (via another PC and saving it on to disk and then onto my desktop), but when I try to run this as administrator I get the following message;
    'Adobe Flash Player installer/uninstaller 10.1 r102 has stopped working'.
    I am at my wits end, if there is anyone out there that can help it would be appreciated.
    Thank you.

    NO, just a windows pop-up with the message:
         "Microsoft Windows
         Adobe Flash player Installer/Uninstaller 10.1
         r85 has stopped working
         A problem caused the program to stop working correctly.
         Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is
    And then just the option to "close program". This happens at the point of me trying to install the
    program from the saved download on my desktop, directly through a website or any other method I've tried.

  • Adobe flash player installer screen won't close

    I was going to install it and found it was going to install Google chrome, and I didn't want that. So, I cancelled it and now I can't get the installer screen off my computer! Any help?

    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)
    Nothing in those but the Flash Player plugin.

  • Adobe Flash Player Installer Box Showing Up Blank?

    My laptop is running Windows 7 and I'm trying to install the newest version of Adobe's Flash Player for Firefox Everything goes fine until I get to the Adobe Flash Player Installer box, it just shows up as a blank black box. I've retried many times now and the Installer box still shows up blank. I've even waited to see if it was maybe just slow downloading but I've had the Installer window open for at least an hour now and It's still blank. Is this an issue with my laptop and if so can I get help with it or is this an issue with the Adobe website?

    Try using these installers
    Flash Player for ActiveX (Internet Explorer)
    Flash Player Plug-in (All other browsers)

  • Adobe Flash Player Installer blank when installing?

    I tried updating my adobe flash player and every time I installed it, and from all my three browsers, it remains blank when the "Adobe Flash Player Installer"
    comes up and I cannot do anything. I just have to log off because it won't close. I tried uninstalling all my adobe stuff in my computer and still nothing will install and now I can't watch no youtube videos and it's just so annoying. Please help! (Picture below of issue)

    Finally found the fix with the last link on the page with the direct download. Not sure why the update is doing this.
    Looks like a lot of people are experiencing this.
    Thank you!

  • Adobe Flash Player Installer Screen completely black

    When trying to install Adobe Flash Player, Mac 10.10.2, Safari 8.0.4, the Adobe Flash Player Installer page and popup screens are completely black and not accessible.

    A) The screenshot didn't work. It's not complex to visualize. Just imagine a window in the app "Install Adobe Flash Player" which has the words Adobe Flash Player Installer in the top most horizontal section, on the same level as the Mac Red and Yellow circles. Then imagine that everything below that level is completely black. That's what it looks like.
    B) When I went to Installation problems | Mac, and hit "
    Flash Player for Safari and Firefox - NPAPI
    then I get a Safari tab The entire window area below the tab line is also completely black. Plus there is a pop-up that says "Plug-in blocked for this website"

  • Adobe Flash Player Installer keeps popping up

    Every few minutes a get a pop up of the Adobe Flash Player Installer asking me if I want to install the latest version.
    I have already the latest version.
    I have already uninstalled the Flash Player and reinstalled it. I have done this several times using the Windows Control Panel Uninstall Program. I have also used the Adobe uninstaller tool from the Adobe website.
    I have already configured Adobre Flash Player to never update.
    I have already googled for this, apparently not so uncommon, issue.
    Running Windows 7 x64, Internet Explorer 10, Chrome

    Hello Chris,
    Sorry for the late reply. I only saw the first part of your message days ago. Perhaps it has been edited since.
    This problem keeps happening and it is truly a nightmare. I have tried other things including going to the Registry (which I have not altered).
    In response to your question:
    1. In Windows Task Manager I see
    1.a:  InstallFlashPlayer.exe *32 Description: Adobe® Flash® Player Installer/Uninstaller 11.6 r602. Location: C:\Users\Antonio\AppData\Local\Temp\{513974BF-C40D-4C4D-9367-A59EECC45B2D} and
    1.b: FP_AX_CAB_INSTALLER64.exe *32 (Adobe® Flash® Player Installer/Uninstaller 11.6 r602)  C:\Users\Antonio\AppData\Local\Temp\ICD7.tmp
    This second one, I did not see before. It has appeared after I reinstalled Flash Player at the request of Adobe Acrobat when converting to pdf an email that, apparently, contained Flash.
    2. From Process Explorer
    2.a. For InstallFlashPlayer.exe: Parent: FP_AX_CAB_INSTALLER64.exe(5108)
    Curent Directory: C:\Users\Antonio\AppData\Local\Temp\ICD7.tmp\
    Command Line: "C:\Users\Antonio\AppData\Local\Temp\{513974BF-C40D-4C4D-9367-A59EECC45B2D}\InstallFlashP layer.exe" -iv 6
    Path: C:\Users\Antonio\AppData\Local\Temp\{513974BF-C40D-4C4D-9367-A59EECC45B2D}\InstallFlashPl ayer.exe
    2.b. For FP_AX_CAB_INSTALLER64.exe: Parent: iexplore.exe(7292)
    Current Directory: C:\Users\Antonio\AppData\Local\Temp\ICD7.tmp\
    Command Line: C:\Users\Antonio\AppData\Local\Temp\ICD7.tmp\FP_AX_CAB_INSTALLER64.exe
    Path: C:\Users\Antonio\AppData\Local\Temp\ICD7.tmp\FP_AX_CAB_INSTALLER64.exe
    One clarification: The installer does not show up at regular intervals. Sometimes it shows up every few minutes and sometimes it takes longer to appear.
    Thank you very much for your help

  • Adobe Flash Player Installer 11.1 will not stop trying to load itself

    Adobe Flash Player Installer 11.1 automatically starts/restarts itself trying to load this program.  I have this program and have the update to it already, but this AFP installer 11.1 keeps trying to load itself until my computer freezes. The .exe files it starts as is FP_AX_CAB_INSTALLER.EXE, which then opens another .exe file called InstallerFlashPlayer.exe
    I have downloaded the uninstall flash player today and tried to remove everything Flash and Adobe, but still this .exe file keeps popping up.

    Does that still happen after you restart Windows?
