    Hello friends,
    I am getting some problem with my Flash. Till last night, it was working fine and all programs with flash were okay too. But all of a sudden from this morning,it shows that I don't have the latest version of Flash. But I downloaded it and tried to install the current version ,it still dosen't improves. Moreover Macromedia site shows I have the latest version [8.0.22.0] of it. :(

    So, can anyone please tell me what is the reason for this ? :roll:

    Hoping to hear from you soon

    Open Start -> Run and type following:

    regsvr32 %windir%\system32\Macromed\Flash\Flash8.ocx

    It'll give u a message like "DLLRegisterServer in C:\Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash\Flash8.ocx succeeded"...

    Thank you Vishal for your advice, but I got this :
    DLLRegisterServer in C:\Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash\Flash8.ocx failed
    Return code was :0x80070005

    Now, what should I do ?
    Also, what is wrong with my system ? And how to prevent it ? Is it affected by some virus ?

    Well said dude! :wink:
    This ERROR occurs, when the user has no Administration rights!

    Return code was: 0x80070005

    If u r not logged in as Administrator, then login using Administrator account!

    Thank you very much Vishal and also Saurav_cheeta. You two were right, I really didn't had the Administrator's right .
    I have finally sorted out the flash problem. :D

    Now,Vishal, will you please tell me how to make Windows recognise the current DirectX version,as I have the same problem with it too. Have the latest DirectX, but programmes says it is not. :roll:

    And also, why did this happened all of a sudden ? Is there any way to prevent this malfunctioning in any way ? :cry:

    Hoping to hear from you all again :p
