Re: Adobe Flash Player 11.3.300.257

What a bloody pissoff! I uninstalled the current FP for IE and tried to reinstall 11.2.202.235. Damn Adobe would NOT allow it! Adobe said I MUST install the current version! What the f**k is the matter with them? Arrogant asses! I should be able to install any version I please. It is MY computer not theirs.

How do I install an older version? If Adobe is supporting version 10 still for IE 6 then I suppose it will install....just not any version 11?

Did you even search for a solution?

I found this using Google.

Delete this registry key below and you should then be able to install any version of flash you want. (As always backup your registry first.)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Macromedia\FlashPlayer\SafeVersions

Well if you went that far already..best to get their special super duper uninstaller and then start from scratch.

Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller
The Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller is a valuable tool for troubleshooting and testing detection schemes. The most current uninstallers and instructions for use can be found in this Tech Note. Use it cause it ID's the version you really have. Then you can get the right uninstaller.

I personally would get the old stuff here

Use the uninstaller here and follow the directions below to remove all traces of Flash:

»helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/···ows.html

Then here's the offline installers link:

»www.adobe.com/products/flashplay···on3.html

You can find 10.3.183.20 near the bottom. It's the version I default back to when I've had issues with the last 11.2 and even 11.3. Adobe has been patching Flash 10.3 for people who supposedly can't install 11.3 or in this case are having issues with it.

The Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller says I do not have FP installed. It uninstalled cleanly from Add/Remove programs last night. I don't usually have trouble with Flash uninstalling.

The problem is that Adobe will NOT ALLOW me to install ANY VERSION EXCEPT THE CURRENT ONE. This is nuts. I have a bunch of old versions in my downloaded programs folder. I've tried all of them. NONE will install. I get the same error message for each telling me that I must install the latest version. Some of the ones I tried were version 10 ones and they get the same error that I must install the latest version.

Is Adobe now blocking installation of old versions if you remove the version you have and then try to install any version except the current one? It looks to me like it is...at least for IE.

Maybe I just need to reboot the computer. I avoid that now for as long as I can as I am afraid each time I reboot that it might not reboot. (Of course, I have closed and reopened IE several times).

Do what you think best..since i am not there..can only think you are doing all the right things so far.
And of course since you did uninstall the thing ..not surprised what the super duper uninstaller stated...so we are back to the old standby..install the new one again..so the uninstaller now does see it can go forward..and then use the uninstaller to clean it off that way..hopefully it will clean all trace and then you can install the older version...but even then..I think you might have to reboot for all the stuff to go away with their super duper.

mele, did you see the post where it was mentioned to try deleting the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Macromedia\FlashPlayer\SafeVersions" regkey(s)?

as part of uninstalling "flash player", you could delete all of the "macromedia"/"flash player" regkeys in "HKLM\software" (if they weren't removed by the uninstaller) and see if that allows you to install an older version of "flash player"..

That's not the case for me and I have XP Pro SP3. I've gone from the latest version back to 10.3 using the uninstaller and instructions to remove all trace elements of Flash and use the offline installers link above to reinstall it.

I didn't see that post. I have regkeys for SafeVersions for ALL versions of Flash Player from 6.x through 11.x. It looks like specific data set for versions 10 and 11 but not for versions 6-9.

Maybe I'll try deleting them. If I could install just for Opera I would do that and install the latest version. I don't want FP installed on Fx or SeaMonkey though.

I usually, run the flashplayer uninstaller, before installing the new version.

This time I just installed the new version over the top of v11.2.202.228, successfully for Opera.

I will not risk this update for Internet Explorer, since I still have version IE6, which is no longer supported by Adobe. Besides, I rarely use IE.

I have never installed Adobe's Flash Player for Opera.
Why don't you just extract NPSWF32.dll from the install package and place it in Opera's plugins folder.

A better link to your link, »blog.ffextensionguru.com/2012/06···loatware.

But that's nothing new, Adobe wanting to add crapware along with the download.

Use Flash Player uninstaller »helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/···nstaller after running the uninstaller reboot your PC, and install older version of Flash Player(s).

sadly can't be done because Mele20 already uninstalled the version he/she mistakenly installed by the regular method..so this is the problem faced..
