    Unable to install Adobe Flash Player on Windows 8 beta 64 bit.

    I have recently installed windows 8 beta on my laptop (64x) the process ended fine with no issues, the problem is that when I tried to run the Adove Flash Player I get the message that the current software cannot be installed on this windows version (not exactly, but nearly). So tell me what should I do now in order to install the adobe flash on my machine?

    As you are using a beta version of Windows8, you must come to terms that betas are not perfect software, but far from it. Windows 8 beta is having a number of issues which are mostly overcame in Windows 8.

    It can be a software glitch, also it can be a version mismatch.

    Log into www.adobe.com, find Flash Player, select 64 bit version compatible to Windows8, download, install.

    That will possibly do. In case that also fails, log into Safe Mode in Windows8,
    Then follow the earlier mentioned process and check the situation.

    Hi.....................,

    Download the correct software from adobe site.
    Visit adobe.com and download the software.
    Now after that make sure that before install you must see the compatibility.
    It must be compatible for your windows 8
    Now press download.
    And then finally you can install it.

    -- Slow connection and lack ao antivirus creates problem.
    -- Do download and install the file in safe location.
    -- You mention some software but they may be a corrupted one.

    Thanks
