    Default Flash9 Error 1904 Insoluble Problem

    Each time I try to install Flash, I receive the following error message:

    Product: Adobe Flash Player 9 ActiveX -- Error 1904.Module
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash\Flash9d.ocx failed to register. HRESULT
    -2147220473. Contact your support personnel.

    My permissions are exactly as they should be, but I ran subinacl.exe anyway. I
    have uninstalled and reinstalled countless times--several times with my
    firewall and virus scanner turned off--and I have also registered the .ocx file
    manually (successfully, according to the message I received). I have used ERUNT
    to restore my registry to a date before Flash went wonky (a little more than a
    week ago).

    I have tried several different installer links. Some of them refuse to work
    because they say there is a newer version available.

    When I check IE7's add-ons, there is no Active-X control for me to enable.

    I'm at the end of my rope with this, so I hope there will be a fix for it soon.

    Never mind. I found the fix.

    http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/flashplayer9/releasenotes.html#install

    Download the Uninstaller
    Open the Windows Command Prompt ( Run > cmd ).
    Navigate to the directory where the uninstaller was downloaded.
    Run "uninstall_flash_player.exe /clean."

    Do it twice.

    I don't know why the /clean switch makes a difference, but it does. And I
    don't know why running it twice is required, but it is.

    WOW!

    I've been wrangling with this after doing multiple version install/
    uninstalls - was stuck with 1904 for the last 24 hrs, this fixed it!

    THANK YOU!!!
