Having issues updating Adobe Flash on Windows 7 Home

7 posts in this topic

This has been occurring off and on for months now. We dl the update and try to install it, but it either times out or errors out. This system isn't ours. It belongs to the home school program. Otherwise I would wipe it and start from scratch.

Any advice would be awesome.

Times out or errors out when it tries to download it's installer files? Try these, I think these are the full installers that won't need to download additional components.

Remove all old flash programs. Do not update it re install it.

I tried that and now I can't even install it. So that system is without flash now. Good thing there's no school this week. But now I don't know what else to try.

Try running the flash uninstaller - http://helpx.adobe.c...yer_uninstaller

then re-installing flash.

This does remove the IE Active X, and Firefox versions.

I have a 2 step process for you

1 - Go to the adobe site and download the flash uninstaller

http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/uninstall-flash-player-windows.html

Run the uninstaller, so that you remove all signs of flash from the pc. The reason you cant reinstall is because there is enough of the program left in the registry for flash to think its already there. Once you run the program, REBOOT!

2 - Go to the Ninite website.

http://ninite.com/

In the Runtimes section (little less than half way down), select flash and install it from there. After the install, REBOOT.

I use Ninite to update and install a lot of programs because its the current version, they don't install any bloatware with the install, and you can install multiple programs from the list at one time....

If you need any other help let me know.
