I'm using Windows XP, and every time I attempt to download the Macromedia Flash Player, I receive a prompt that states that it was successfully downloaded.

But, it doesn't appear on my computer.

I've done all the suggested remedies, by going into Internet Explorer and ensuring that Active X... blah, blah, blahs are enabled.

Can someone please help me?

Thanks,

Ron :tazz:

When you say "it doesn't appear on your computer", Macromedia Flash Player doesn't put any shortcuts anywhere on your PC, it's not supposed to. It's not something you can run on it's own. It's simply a plug-in that allows Flash animations to play inside your web-browser when you visit a website that's got Flash content on it. Go to Macromedia's home-page http://www.macromedia.com and if you can see the "Studio 8" animated ad-banner at the top, that's done with Flash so it proves your Flash player is installed properly.

That's the problem... when I attempt to view a FLASH macromedia presentation, I'm unable to do so... and I am prompted to download macromedia!

I know it sounds weird... but it's the truth...
