I was able to open powerpoint files with flash embedded in it without a problem all these days.

But from today it says that the control is not registered in my system.
How can I manually register it? I don't have administrative rights,so I can't install it from adobe.com

But flash files works in Firefox...

Any suggestions?

Give following command in RUN dialog box:

regsvr32 %windir%\System32\Macromed\Flash\flash.ocx

If it gives error, then open %windir%\System32\Macromed\Flash\ folder and check the filename (it may be flash8.ocx or something like that) and put it in the above mentioned command.

The file name is flash.ocx itself... :(

^^ Is there any other file with the name "flash8.ocx" or "flash9b.ocx", etc. If yes then use the same command for that file, otherwise install the latest flash version.
