I have managed to download the flash player but can'y install it. I have read about the problem but can'y find a workaround. Apparently flash likes to install to the C drive, but a rebuild of my pc follwoing a crash earlier has resulted in the hard drive now being named H
Inconvenient, but not a problem until now. I have thought of creating a partition on the H drive and labelling it C (after I have renamed the current device that is called C, but I'm not sure if this would work or if there is a better way around the problem
(Before you ask about the H drive - it was not me!!!! I had a serious problem and was greatful for recovery without loss of data)

Flash installs to the system drive regardless of where it is. Any piece of software that arrogantly assumes everybody has Drive C as the main drive is probably not worth having.
What happ[ens when you try to install flash?

Can you post exact error message?
Why are you installing Flash? Did it stop working, or...?

I lost everything when I had a bad pc crash sometime ago. Most items now recovered, but the flash player is needed for some web sites to work properly. following the links takes me to the area where I download the flash player.

the messages I get are on the attachment jpeg file


the H drive is still showing 105GB free (out of 146GB total)

This has gotten me somewhere but when I'm in the "add drive letter or path" window the "assign a new drive letter or path for F" is greyed out. It wont let me click on it or the arrow button to change the letter.

Can you help?
