Adobe Flash Player is a high-performance, expressive client runtime software that delivers great digital experiences to end users. These days, Web sites are built in Flash, and individuals need to have Flash Player installed on their computers to render Web sites. Adobe releases new versions of Flash Player at regular intervals, and end users are required to update the installed player with the latest version. The install procedure is simple, but sometimes Flash Player may not install and work correctly.
Some of the factors to be considered are the following:
- In order to install/update Flash Player correctly, ensure that you completely remove the previous version. Go to My Computer and open the Add/Remove Programs window from the Control Panel. Uninstall everything related to Flash Player.
- Ensure you’re using the latest version of the browser. Sometimes, Flash Player is not installed if the browser is not the latest one.
- Ensure your firewall is not blocking you from downloading and installing Flash Player. Adjust the security settings of the browser so as to allow it to download and install Flash Player.
- Ensure that the Windows registry is up to date and has no errors.
- Ensure that you are not running any application that is blocking Flash Player. Applications like Spywarebaster and Freesurfer are known to block Flash Player.
If the “installation complete” video is played and Flash Player still refuses to work correctly, go through the before mentioned steps to fix the problem.
