I am trying to install Adobe Flash Player version 10 for IE on a PC running Vista Business. I can install the Firefox version of Flash Player ok, but when I try to install it for IE7 I get the error message "Failed to install. For troubleshooting tips, please see http://www.adobe.com/go/tn_19166
This is happening if I install either within IE7 or stand-alone (I found one web-site which allows you to download Flash Player 10 without auto installing it). I've uninstalled Flash and reinstalled it, plus all the other suggestions in Adobe's support page referred to in the link above.
When I install it stand-alone I can see that it stops at the point of registering Flash10b.ocx
I know that I can just use Firefox, but to me that isn't the answer because this should work - these are both industry standard programs and add-ons
