You're great. I spent 4 hours trying to fix my internet explorer so it would work again with flash player, Downloaded it, uninstalled it, redownloaded, you get the idea.
I followed everything you said to try and It works now! Thank you so so so so so much. I had updated my windows earlier in the evening and it disabled the add-ons. All I had to do was enable the shockwave flash object and everything worked perfect again. Thank you so much for posting!
Your instructions for Jack helped me! Thank you so much! I've been without Flash Player for several months!
Thanks Lashune, followed Jacks instructions but didnt work, then tried yours and 'bingo'. been trying to solve it for weeks.
Hi, I have a problem with LIVESTRAM on one particular site.
I have IE8 and Windows SP3 and the most recent adobe flash-player.
Flashplayer still works fine on youtube and also on some other livestream sites, but not on that one certain livestream-site, where it used to work just fine before and where I would love to get back to again. It`s been 8weeks now, aproximately, since I can not watch it online there anymore.
All of a sudden and for aparently no reason,
it didn`t show off the screen there anymore, instead it keeps telling me, that I will have to install adobe flash player..... ;-/
I tried everythingto make it work again, uninstalled everything and reinstalled it,
but that particular livestream just won`t work.
No one seems to know advice naymore....;-(
I also checked the add-ons, like you wrote here before, they`re all enabled,
also shockwave and so forth.
I even called up that live-stream-site,
but they told me, that they hadn`t change anything there on that site....hhmmmm....
Can anybody help me? Thanx a lot already, Anna
Thank you sooooo much Lashune! I've been trying to do a university assignment all day and have not been able to get an application to run due to this problem! I have been so ridiculously stressed, thank you again I can now relax and start working on it! A few hours behind but at least I can get it done now! :)
Internet Explorer 9 has an issue with this as well, if enabling javscript and ensuring flash is enabled it still doesn't work, go to programs and files in control panel, check to view updates, find internet explorer 9 in the list (under windows updates) and uninstall it - this will revert to internet explorer 8 and it should work.
How come when I try to install adobe flash player, a screen appears announcing that I have completed the installation. But when I try to search for adobe flash player, it doesn't exist on my laptop?
I found that all I had to do to get it to work was to NOT install Real Player and Real Downloader. Once I removed those plugins from Firefox by uninstalling them, Flash worked perfectly. You can't download YouTube videos in Firefox unless you re-install those programs, opt out of installing the plugins into Firefox, and just use IE if you want to download videos.
To post a comment on "Why won't Flash work, even though it's installed?", please return
