Outdated: Verifying Adobe Flash Player Installation for IE 8

This section provides a tutorial example on how to verify that Adobe Flash Player is installed properly for IE 8 on Windows systems

After finishing the installation process of Adobe Flash Player for IE, how do you know it is installed properly? Here is what I did to verify the installation:

1. Open the installation log file, FlashInstall.log, in C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash. The log file contains these lines:

... "C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files\FP_AX_CAB_INSTALLER.exe"
    /RegServer
... Software\Macromedia\FlashPlayerActiveX/PlayerPath 2
... SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Adobe Flash
    Player ActiveX/ 2
... C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash\Flash10k.ocx
... C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash\FlashUtil10k_ActiveX.exe
... C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash\FlashUtil10k_ActiveX.dll

2. Run "Add or Remove Programs" in Control Panel. You see "Adobe Flash Player 10 ActiveX" listed as an installed program.

3. Run IE 8 and visit the Adobe Flash Player test page at http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/. You see "You have version 10,1,85,3 installed" displayed in the "Version Information" box in the middle of the page.

Now I am sure that I have installed Adobe Flash Player ActiveX 10.1.85.3 for IE 8 on my Windows XP system.
