Assistance will be appreciated.
I am unable to get Internet Explorer 8 to run with Adobe Flash Player 10.n
I have a dell inspiron 1501 laptop running vista home premium 32 bit SP1 and have just upgraded IE7 to IE8.
IE7 did run with adobe flash player prior to IE upgrade.
My Firefox browser works okay with Flash Player version 10.2.152.26
Fault symptom - Flash Player fails to install, fault message " The activeX for Flash Player could not be registered"
I have run flash uninstall and confirmed that flash is uninstalled using adobe website - http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/before
trying to download/install flash player.
I have ran adobe "Troubleshoot Flash Player installation for windows" as prompted by the adobe install fail window.
I also ran "subinacl.exe/reset_fp10.cmd (prompted by "Troubleshoot Flash Player installation for windows") which produced
a window - C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe script which states "Warning :Unable to set a SeSecurityPrivilege privilege.
This privilege may be required.
C:\Windows\System32\Macromed - CreateFile Error : 1314 A required privilege is not held by the client.
Also I have noticed that under Start/All Programs , I cannot see folder 'accessories' - even though 'accessories folder is resident
on my c drive - C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories.
Also IE8 (no addons) is not listed under "System Tools" within Accessories folder.
I suspect that my vista registry is corrupt - I have tried registry repair using my Norton Utilities but fault symptom still persists.
Can I repair the registry without having to reinstall vista home premium?
Update to post - I now have access to another dell inspiron 1501 laptop with same vista OS home premium SP1/IE8 and same configuration settings etc. This other dell inspiron 1501 laptop IE8 works okay with flash player and in its flash folder in path C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash, has the following :
FlashPlayer Trust folder holding a rpconverter.cfg file
FlashInstall text log
install text log
My flash folder in path C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash after adobe message " The activeX for Flash Player could not be registered" is displayed at end of flash install fail, has same as above except it does not have a FlashPlayer Trust folder\rpconverter.cfg and does not have a "install" text file.
Any one got advice please
