    Flash won't install on Build 9860


    Strange thing just happened - I have updated to Build 9860, in fact, I reinstalled the original Win10 TP, then updated to 9860 right away and now am in the process of setting up. Suddenly I got the following message while installing Adobe Flash: "The user does not have sufficient privileges to install Adobe Flash Player". I'm a bit at a loss here. Any ideas?

  2. How to: 10 Tips before installing the latest Windows 10

    Successfully updated from 9860 to 9879 on 12/01/14. Don't know why it worked this time, since Win10 has not been booted since the failure on 11/25/14.

    BTW, after the failure, it automatically reverted back to 9860.

  3. Windows defender not updating definitions on windows 10

    Any update to this one? It's been happening for me since I installed 9860 - it just won't install the updates.

    I've tried the methods for fixing it that apply to 8.1 with no avail.

    You don't need to install Flash Player.

    Flash is now imbedded into IE11 so you don't need to install it anymore. It's the same as on Windows 8/8.1. It's also updated through Windows update via IE.

    Also, if you look under Control Panel in Windows 8/8.1 and now 10, you'll see the Flash Player.

    How do you mean? Adobe Flash Player embedded into the Operating system.

    Funny, I had to install it for FireFox.
    Oh and I didn't have an issue doing it.

    Can't speak for Firefox or any other browser, but it (Flash) is installed by default along with IE11. And when trying to install it on Windows 8, as the OP found out with Win 10, the OS will complain that it's already installed.

    I know this because when I was initially having IE11 issue with certain sites under Win 8, I tried installing Flash only to find it wasn't compatible with the OS, and that it was already installed.

    I'm not going to argue with you and say you didn't install a copy, but... *Confused

    There's still lots of media out there that doesn't support HTML so you may need the plug-in for Firefox.
    I ran into similar issues as well, so I downloaded the standalone installer from Adobe Labs and all was good. (Flash v. 15.0.0.199)

    How do you mean? Adobe Flash Player embedded into the Operating system. True if you only use IE as your browser. For IE, flash is installed as an Activex and updated via Windows Updates. However, if you use any other browser such as: Firefox, Chrome, Opera etc ... then you must install flash as a plugin/add-on.

    These files are in: C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash

    It seems that a lot of things don't work properly if you are running 9860 from upgrade. I gave up with mine and clean installed 9860 and all issues are gone.

    I now realize that the problem I had was indeed related to IE - the installer that did not work was Flash for IE. The other installer - Flash for other browsers - installed without a problem. I don't usually use IE, but on Windows 7 I typically install Flash and Java for IE also - just in case I might need it for some strange website that requires IE (although lately the number of such sites is greatly diminished).

    The Flash in control panel is 32 bit. I do not use 32 bit browsers since I'm using a 64-bit OS. Perhaps that's why Firefox did not see it and I needed to install the plugin.
