Re: Adobe Flash player
As long as don't tell the details (what OS, what browser, how are you doing it, what happens exactly and what goes wrong) we surely can't help you. For playing Flash-animations, there's no alternative, so you've got the choice between (a) find a way to get it running or (b) don't play Flash.
If You're Using Internet Explorer...
..the click on the link below to download the "stand alone" Flash Player ActiveX installer.. Once the .msi installer is downloaded to your desktop, then run the installer and it will install the current version of the Flash Player.
Hope this helps.
Yes, I Did Mean...
...to post the link you mentioned below. I've used the downloadable .msi file quite a few times and it's worked for me.:
I could swear I pasted that link when I created the post???
Oh well....I guess I'm just getting old.. Thanks for pointing out the error of my ways.
That certainly did work nicely!! Thank you very much everyone for your help and advice. I appreciate it.
Adobe Flash Player
Be happy that you cannot download it- Adobe will be tryingtocontrol those that have Adobe Flash Player.
OK Now,,With A Statement Like That....Please Explain...
Adobe has been around a long time, as has Macromedia who formerly produced Flash...so what do you mean by "tryingtocontrol those" with Flash Player..
Flash player is a small OPTIONAL ActiveX component for those that wish to view "Flash" media.. It's not a required product and if Adobe gets heavy-handed with their product, folks just won't use it. Obviously, it wouldn't help Adobe to "control" anyone.
Glad I found this thread.....
...at least I'm not alone in my dummie territory XP home, IE 7, Firefox and Opera - 256 MB RAM Celeron D
I go to all these sites that tell me I need to upgrade to Flash 9 - then I do the download, get a message that dowbnload successful, and it still dowesn't work - I go back to the original site and STILL get message that I need to install Adobe 9 - I'll study this thread to see if I find the solution.

It's a common name from that area. I live in the U.S... Certainly, I have family that came from Wales.. but we've been in the states for quite a few generations.
I hope this helps.
