Can't install Flash on Vista clean install - Macromedia Flash Player

OK...I am thoroughly frustrated. I am working on a clean install of Vista Ultimate, administrator account with all requisite permissions, IE7 is conifgured to prompt for Active X, etc. Yet, when I try to install Flash Player, I get to the screen that has the green bars running across as if it is installing.

    Default Can't install Flash on Vista clean install

    OK...I am thoroughly frustrated. I am working on a clean install of Vista
    Ultimate, administrator account with all requisite permissions, IE7 is
    conifgured to prompt for Active X, etc. Yet, when I try to install Flash
    Player, I get to the screen that has the green bars running across as if it is
    installing. Then, it either runs forever, or I get a pop-up saying "Network
    Error" or "Download Interrupted". I am able to download anything from every
    other site on the web, so I am not worried about my network settings. When I
    check system32/.Macromed directory, there is no Flash sub-directory, only a
    Download directory. In that directory are the following files: Install.exe
    and Download.dll.

    Can anyone please help??? I am pulling my hair out (and I don't have a lot
    left!)

    P.S. I have another Vista computer that has FLash on it. Can I just copy the
    files from that computer?

    That's interesting, and unusual. The two files that you DO see are put there
    by the install process. They basically -are- the Flash Player installer.

    If you were installing the Flash Player PLUGIN (for FireFox, any non-IE
    windows browser) then you could copy it over. But for the OCX activeX control
    install you cannot. It has to actually install.

    Can you grab and post a screen shot of those errors? I don't find any other
    similar cases in the database.. it's not clear to me if they're coming from
    Vista or from the installer..

    Thanks for the reply. I actually found a discussion board where someone posted an executable file for download. I downloaded that file and installed from my computer, and that seemed to work fine.
