This page aims to give help and advice to visitors who are having problems with downloading the Adobe Flash Player (formerly the Macromedia Flash Player). For visitors who are unable to download or use the required plug-in, the Navigation Without Flash page provides an alternative method of accessing the most important pages within this site.

Most problems are a result of high security settings or damaged pre-installed Flash Players preventing the upgrade.

Pre-installed Flash Players

Flash Players pre-installed in most popular browsers, if damaged, may prevent the upgrade to the latest player. These difficulties can be resolved by uninstalling the Flash Player, downloading the latest browser from the Internet and then, if necessary, downloading and installing the Flash Player from the Adobe Flash Player Support Centre.

Internet Explorer and ActiveX Controls

Macromedia Flash content is displayed in Internet Explorer by using an ActiveX control. When you attempt to download the Flash Player, Windows encounters a request to download the ActiveX control. Depending on your security settings, you may see a Security Warning dialog box. Click Yes to accept the ActiveX control.

If your security settings are too high, they will not permit the ActiveX controls download. Therefore, the security settings need to be changed to allow the ActiveX control to download. For more information, use to help facilty in Interent Explorer and search for Setting Security Levels.

Internet Explorer and Install on Demand

Internet Explorer features an option called Install on Demand, which allows the user to prevent the specified ActiveX control from ever installing in the future. If this option is selected when you encounter Flash Player ActiveX controls, future installation attempts of these controls will fail.

An executable that rectifies the problem is available from the Adobe Flash Player Support Centre. Once rectified, the Flash Player can be downloaded from the Adobe Flash Player Support Centre.

To change the Install on Demand selection, select Internet Options from the Tools menu, click the Advanced tab, and then click in the Enable Install On Demand check box.
