Installing Macromedia Flash Player for IE7 on Windows Vista
I had some trouble installing Macromedia Flash Player on Windows Vista because I have UAP turned on. I did not receive a Windows Security box ("This action requires administrative rights") so the install would simply fail. So instead I downloaded the Flash Player standalone installer for Internet Explorer
via a Macromedia knowledgebase technote
. Once downloaded, I right-clicked on the installer and chose Run Elevated. Worked like a charm.
