I'm running Vista Business edition. I installed Adobe Flash player and it says it installs successfully.
The problem is when I try to view flash player movies on websites, it just promps me on the site saying I need to install
flash player (even though I already have it installed).
Why isn't it working? I looked on the adobe site, but they don't have much support in regards to my issue.

If you have more than one web-browser installed (IE7 plus another one), make sure you use the same web-browser for viewing flash movies as you did for downloading the player setup file. For example, if you visited the adobe flash player website using IE7, adobe automatically sends you the correct version for Internet Explorer but it won't work in other web-browsers such as Firefox or Opera.

If you intend to use Firefox or Opera for viewing flash movies you need to visit the adobe flash download site using one of those browsers in order for adobe to detect which browser you're currently using and give you the correct version.

Yeah. I'm only useing IE7. I did an install of flashplayer from adobe.com. It says it installed successfully. It restarts the browser so settings can take effect. I can play movies on youtube.com, but if I go to say, www.thewitcher.com or www.ebgames.com and try to view game trailers on there, they don't load, just says download adobe flash player to view.
