    Hi Suki, I assume this is in a Browser?


    See in each Browser which version of Flash it thinks it has...




    Then Test Adobe Shockwave & Flash Players...




    Could it be disabled?

    Learn about Safari 5.1.7 and Leopard Security Update 2012-003.



    Products Affected

    Mac OS X 10.5, Product Security, Safari 5.1 (Mac OS X 10.6), Safari 5.1 (OS X Lion)



    Safari 5.1.7 for OS X Lion, Safari 5.1.7 for OS X Snow Leopard, and Leopard Security Update 2012-003 disable out-of-date versions of Adobe Flash Player.

    Out-of-date versions of Adobe Flash Player do not include the latest security updates and will be disabled to help keep your Mac secure. If Safari 5.1.7 or Leopard Security Update 2012-003 detects an out-of-date version of Flash Player on your system, you will see a dialog informing you that Flash Player has been disabled. The dialog provides the option to go directly to Adobe's website, where you can download and install an updated version of Flash Player.

    Additional Information

    If you need to re-enable an out-of-date version of Flash Player, you can do the following:

        1.    Navigate to the /Library/Internet Plug-Ins (Disabled) folder.

        2.    Drag "Flash Player.plugin" into /Library/Internet Plug-Ins.

        3.    If the browser is running, quit and restart it.

    Thanks for your help.  I unistalled and reinstalled three times and finally got it to work.  Not really sure why it wouldn't at first, but its fine now.

    I just get an error message that i need to install flash player.  After uninstalling and reinstalling a number of times, it finally worked.
