Adobe Flash Player Active X lists in Installed programs within Windows:

This any good to you. I'm assuming from your question you're not trying to detect it in a browser, through ASP?

The author states that the supplied comment helped to find a solution, along with looking at installed programs, I question whether this means that the author fully "solved this myself"

If it's purely on lines of code then most of the responses to questions would be in the same position.

What a terrible attitude.

Request closure again, I won't object.

My original question was: "Is there any way to detect whether Abobe Flash Player ActiveX is installed on a PC using VB.NET 2005?"
In the link you sent, there was nothing related to VB.NET.
My attitude is not terrible, I am just being honest.
