Vista: Getting Adobe Flash Player to Work

Here’s the scenario: you download the latest and greatest version of the Adobe Flash Player. After it finishes installing, you go to a site featuring Flash content and are greeted with a message notifying you that you need to install Flash Player, but didn’t you just do that? To properly update your Flash Player, you need to run the installation as Administrator. Follow these steps to properly install Adobe Flash Player:


For Vista (32 bit):

1. Open Computer.

2. Navigate to C:\Windows\System32\.

3. Scroll down and open the Macromed directory.

4. Open the Flash directory.

5. Right-click FlashUtil9b.

6. Select Run as Administrator.

7. When the UAC prompt appears, select Continue.

8. Follow the Flash Player installation wizard.

For Vista (64 bit):

1. Open Computer.

2. Navigate to C:\Windows\SysWOW64\.

3. Scroll down and open the Macromed directory.

4. Open the Flash directory.

5. Right-click FlashUtil9b.

6. Select Run as Administrator.

7. When the UAC prompt appears, select Continue.

8. Follow the Flash Player installation wizard.

Once the wizard completes, Flash Player has been properly installed and will now function properly.

        Tracy, there is no fix for this issue in vista 64-bit. Your computer has two versions of internet explorer. Go to all programs and pick the ie that does not say 64 bit and you will be able to run nay video from any sight through that version of ie. Adobe, nor anyone else, currently has a flash player available that supports ie 64-bit. Hope this helps you and others… it took me about an hour to find the root and the cure.

          I wonder if the same is true for other 64-bit OS’? If so, Adobe need to wake up! The world is going 64-bit, whether they like it or not. Flash will lose it’s 99.999% market share if they’re not moving to 64-bit. Personally I love Silverlight and I’m sure MS are keeping Adobe up at night with that one.. ;)

            It’s not working great. You’re in the 32 bit version of IE 7. Simply, go to top toolbar, select HELP, select ABOUT at bottom. If it does not say 64 Bit, then you are on 32. Succinctly put, as said above, ADOBE HAS NOT MADEA 64bit VERSION OF FLASH. IT WILL NOT RUN. As also stated above, Vista 64 ships with two versions of IE 7 just for this reason. Use the 32 bit version if you want to install Flash. They were supposed to have a fix already. The World is still waiting.

            What happens if it says you have 256-bit??? please HELP!!!!

          • July 27, 2009 at 1:38 am, Anonymous said:

            Megan,
            You have IE v8. If you have a Vista 64-bit operating system, you have 2 versions of IE, 32-bit and 64-bit, just like IE v7. 256bit is the cypher strength and both 32-bit and 64-bit will state this in the alt/Help screen. Under your start menu, Internet Explorer, It should show 2 seperate shortcuts, 1 being the IE64-bit. If you like Hulu and/or need FlashPlayer to work, you will need to start using IExplorer.exe that is in the “Program Files (x86)” folder (which is the 32-bit browser). There is NO POSSIBILITY of Flash Player (up to version10) working in a 64-bit browser, but the 32-bit IE works just fine for most any web content unless you are accessing a tech-site.
            Hope this helps ppl.

          This postng is quite old but mine IE shows as 256 bit (IE 8) I am currently trying to find out what vista is on my computer but they are all the same right? are they all 64 bit? Anyway, I have flash as long as I turn off UAC but as soon as I turn it back on, I no longer have it again and I do not like to have the UAC off! Therefore, I have a fix to my problem but I’m not too happy with it. I have tried all the troubleshooting at Adobe and nothing works for me, I remember this happening once before but I forget how I fixed it. I think it was the file that you downloaded to your desktop and installed from there – it updated (or something) to your registry for Adobe. But that didnt work this time (sorry in a hurry or I’d look up this file name but I’m sure some of you know what I am talking about). I have not read all these posting but I will soon. I was posting this to see if there are anymore suggestions. But I guess I’m a little uninformed since I’m in a hurry, there might just be a solution on this posting somewhere lol.

      Adobe does NOT MAKE a 64bit Version of FLASH. Use your 32 Bit version of IE 7, shipped with every Vista 64 machine. Anyone with Vista 64 that claims they are running flash, is using it via the 32 bit browser, which DOES work fine in Vista 64.

      See Adobe’s FAQ about this below:

    I read by chance, a suggestion for a simple setting change in IE. And it worked.

    Wish I could experiment this solution with other users before they try anything else.

    I tried this and it didn’t work for me. What did is:

    Go to tools, internet options – towards the bottom of the page on the left side is a box that is checked next to “enable protect mode”, uncheck and hit apply.

    Then I did exactly as discussed above – but instead of DOUBLE CLICKING FlashUtil9b I downloaded Flashutil10a. ran it as administrator. Then I turned back on my security on internet explorer – restarted my computer and got it to WORK FINALLY. You have to download the latest version This is very Important.

    Does this bypass any security stuff, etc?
    If you can fix this so easy, why is Adobe saying that they won’t have a flash driver for Windows Explorer 64 bit until maybe the end of 2009?

    Flash will NOT WORK IN VISTA 64 as Adobe has not made a versions of Flash to run on 64bit systems. There IS no fix as of 1/29/09. Vista 64 ships with TWO versions of IE 7, one 64Bit, one 32 Bit. The 64 Bit version is identified. If still undersure what version you have, simply go to toolbar, select HELP, select ABOUT. It will say it’s 64Bit if it is.

    To view FLASH on IE, use the 32 bit version. Again, even if you are getting FLASH to work on your Vista 64 machine, it is only because you are using the 32 bit browser. IF you go to Adobe’s site, they will admit this same issue.

    I believe the Vista 64 bit solution will only play Flash in the 32 bit version of IE. There are two version of IE on Vista 64, just as there are 32 bit/64 bit Photoshop apps. There is still no 64 bit Flash player for Windows so you can only see Flash on the 32 bit version of IE.

    For the Flash IDE, Firefox, Snag-it and many other programs I use on Vista 64 a
    necessary evil tweak in my experience is to force programs to run in XP SP2 compatibility mode. Aero sucks hard and is responsible for many visual bugs. Go to flash.exe icon or firefox.exe, right-click, properties, compatibility, then check the box that says “run compatibility with” and in the drop-down choose XP SP2. You’ll be glad you did. NOTE doing this will negate and turn off Aero but at least you can see your mouse and programs will work like they should.

    If shamanstears way doesn’t work try this.

    1. Uninstall your current flash player

    2. Open Computer.

    3. C:WindowsSystem32.

    3. Double click on the Macromed Folder

    4. Open the Flash folder and click the uninstall app.

    5. After Flash is removed goto http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=tn_14266&sliceId=2 and download…Flash Player 10 (debugger versions)

    6. After it’s downloaded open it with winrar.

    7. Double click the folder – fp10_debug_archive

    8. Double click the folder – 10r12_36

    9. Double click the 5th file down called flashplayer10r12_36_win_debug.exe

    10. Let it install and everything should work.

    I hope this helps someone I was getting really pissed off because I couldn’t watch any videos.

      It is unbelievable that VISTA has two Internet Explorers—one 32-bit and one 64-bit; and Adobe Flash Player can’t tell us about the two browsers when the message comes up that it can’t be installed on a 64-bit browser! Something so simple has probably taken millions of people tons of hours of grief trying to figure out what is wrong! THANKS A MILLION TO ALL THE PEOPLE ON THIS SITE!

After trying everything that I found on the internet I went into Tools->Manage Add-Ons->Enable or Disable Add-ons and enabled Shockwave Flash Object and it worked. You have to be on a page that has a flash object, i.e. the page that is giving you the message to install Flash Player. Hope it works for others.

      ***disabled the mediaplayerconnectivity 0.9.1 extension in FF.
      restarted FF
      Reinstalled every freakin thing.

In fact, when I try to use the flash to watch a video it automatically sent me to adobe.com and told me that flash does not work with any 64bit system. So whoever wrote this cloumn on how to fix the problem didn’t know what they were talking about evidently.

I have had 5 different techs trying to remedy my problem with Vista and the 64-bit problem. By reading all of these comments, I was able to change my Internet Explorer to the 32-bit and Flash Player loaded like a charm. Why did the techs not know this simple trick of selecting the 32-bit program over the 64-bit program? Maybe because it is too SIMPLE for their technically programmed brains! Thank you all for your comments and assistance! I may keep this new laptop now.

Is there any way to get rid of this and get the flahsutil9b. Also when I try to download flash, I get an error that says something about no GUI???? help, please if you can

    This drove me nuts for weeks – here is the answer as it is a script issue not flash

    Vista Users
    1. Go to start and type msconfig
    3. Go to the Tools tab, scroll down and select “Disable UAP” and click the run button.
    4. You should see a command prompt open and it will say “Command completed successfully”.
    5. Reboot
    On your keyboard, hit Windows key and R key together.

    Type regsvr32 vbscript.dll

    Click OK.

    If you see the message “DllRegisterServer in C:WINDOWSsystem32vbscript.dll succeeded,” you are finally free of this irritating problem

    cheers

      With Vista 64-bit operating system INCREDIBLY the 64-bit version of Internet Explorer does not work correctly. FIX: Go to Microsoft website, download the latest Internet Explorer 32-BIT VERSION, follow install procedure. Then go to Control Panel, select add/remove programs, find Internet Explorer 64-bit version, highlight and select REMOVE. Presto! All fixed! P.S.: This drove me crazy till I found the fix on a forum, and dont worry, the 32-bit program is actually faster and works perfectly with the 64-bit Vista. I’m glad Vista 64 runs 32-bit programs too!

Before arriving at this site I had been online with Adobe online help and had someone walk me through several proposed fixes that still didn’t work. After gave feedback to Adobe…they still don’t have an answer. I am running Vista 32 bit with the latest Windows Internet Explorer and everything enabled. Real annoying having to redo download and install every time you restart your computer.

    I am having huge problems on my vista 32 Dell. I am not even going to go into the DELL issue. Anyway…

    I went to create a web page in Weebly and they needed a higher update with Adobe Flash 10, so I went to download it, and it did not do it through IE but it did it through Firefox.

    The adobe page advice said to uninstall all other versions. I had 8 and 9, so that’s what I did and even cleaned out my recycle bin (big huge mistake).

    Anyway…I keep on getting error messages when I tried to execute the files. I’ve turned off the UAC, I’ve disengaged the enable in security, right clicked and tried to run as an administrator.

    Nothing.

    I get these error messages…tn_19166 and type it into google and get a list of sites for resources and I try them and still nothing.

    I’ve also had an installer error message. I really think that two programs are somehow not responding or maybe the installer is not talking to the new adobe, but whatever it is, I need help , and help FAST.

    Now I can’t run by captivate because it needs FLASH!!!!

    Is there anyone out there that can help?

    Again, all the experts at Adobe and Opera and the others are UNABLE to resolve compatibility issues! To call this ridiculous is the understatement of the century. I tried all the proposed solutions and – of course – they don’t work because they aren’t meant to work. Oblabla demanded censorship of the internet and that’s what it is, pure and simple. It’s censorship when most people can no longer watch youtube videos. If Oblabla weren’t the bankster shill he is, perhaps there might be cause to produce vids showing him in a more favorable light, but after the heist of the century a lot of obfuscation seems to be necessary…

    If this Flash Player issue were so bad as to render playing vids impossible, why does it work in older browsers? Because there wasn’t time – or need – to botch up old browsers as well. Keep dingling, Barry!

Yeah, many times after I have reformat my PC, and installed flash player, restarted..and still these “need to install” message will show up. But you know that’s not the only problem I get with Adobe. Sometimes I get certain messages that seem to pertain to permission issues. I don’t know if a lot of people encounter it too, but I found this good source telling that you can solve it by downloading SubLnACL from Microsoft website.

    I too have been having this problem for the past few days and have just solved it! Hoorah!!

    I’m using Internet Explorer and simply clicked on “tools” and then “manage add ons”….. looks for Adobe Flash Player and check if the add on has been disabled. Mine was….. so I enabled it and hey presto my flash player now works properly.

    Under Computer, Click C, click Windows, click System32, click Macromed, click Flash, RIGHT click NPSWF32_FlashUtil.exe, RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR, CONTINUE User Account Control. You can now INSTALL Flash Player… This worked for my computer, FINALLY…. THanks!

    I’m using Vista Ultimate and had just installed Pro Tools SE. I was having problems opening the software due to the Adobe Flash Player version on my Laptop. Searched everywhere including the Pro Tools forums but couldn’t find a fix that worked. After following the info suggested on this page I can now open Pro Tools SE. Works perfectly now:)
    Thanks so much for the info!:)

    your method is no longer working, as FlashUtil9b is not found in the path you mentioned.

    so, now what? any other method?

      Yuck. I would completely uninstall Adobe Flash and then try to reinstall. It sounds like you have something corrupted somewhere.

      Alternatively, installing another browser such as Chrome (which has Adobe Flash already integrated) should be highly considered.

    I have tried your suggestion for Adobe Flash player install (Vista 32bit). I went into macromed opened the folder but no FlashUtil9b but there was FlashUtil32_11_4_402_265. selected run as administrator.Then I clicked on FlashUtil32, the UAC appeared, I seleted continue & it promptly uninstalled Flash player. I then re-installed Flash player but it still doesn`t work! Where have i gone wrong, There is a mention of a Java program & I am not sure if it is installed on my system. thanking you in anticipation of a result.

    I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO FOLLOW ROB ROGERS INSTRUCTIONS ABOVE FOR A 32 BIT VISTA SYSTEM BUT I AM UNABLE TO GO ANY FURTHER THAN THE FIRST STEP……….”OPEN COMPUTER” AND FIND NO OPTIONS FOR STEP #2……………….2. Navigate to C:WindowsSystem32. THERE IS JUST NO PLACE TO NAVIGATE TO STEP #2. I’VE TYPED THAT INTO THE SEARCH BAR AND GET A HUGE LIST OF ITEMS MOSTLY IN ABBREVIATIONS BUT NOTHING SHOWING…..”MACROMED DIRECTORY”. AM I MISINTERPRETING THE INSTRUCTIONS OR DO I HAVE SERIOUS PROBLEMS WITH MY LAPTOP? MY PROBLEM IS THAT WHEN VIEWING A MOVIE ON HULU OR ANY OTHER SITE THE ONLY WAY TO KEEP THE MOVIE FROM FREEZING UP IS TO KEEP THE MOUSE MOVING. WHEN THE PICTURE FREEZES THE AUDIO CONTINUES BUT IF I PUT THE MOVIE ON HOLD FOR A MINUTE TO GRAB A REFRESHMENT I GET THE MESSAGE THAT THE ADOBE HAS CRASHED.
