Go here so you can download and use the uninstaller for getting rid of any leftover version 6, 7 or 8 versions. Once you've done that, you can install the most current version, which is 9.0.16.0. You can download it from here.

Adobe has indeed bought out Macromedia, so it's now called Adobe Flash Player.

Adobe(Macromedia) Flash Player 9.0 should install in

C:\WINDOWS\System32\Macromed\

and not in C:\Program Files\Macromedia\

You didn't mention which version of Windows you're using.

Okay I just tried and it didn't work, same message. My Picture Package still says I need to install Macromedia Flash Player to run. Since I already have Flash 9 I thought of getting Flash 8 but no luck on installing.

What browser are you using? If you go to the site with a non IE based browser (eg: firefox, Opera etc) it will install a different version than the one used for IE.

Your picture package may need to use IE, in which case you will need to go to the site using IE, and install that version.

The animation shows that it is installed correctly in the browser. After installing Flash Player; Try uninstalling the DV software, reboot and reinstall.

Of course it may be that the software will only recognise the name 'Macromedia' Flash player, in which case you may need to update the software from the manufacturers site (if an update is available) - or contact Sony.

What do you mean DV software? I use IE. The Picture Package used to work, but I accidently uninstalled Flash 8 thinking it don't need it anymore since I have Flash 9. It wasn't until I wanted to upload new pics to see that I actually needed that Flash 8. I'm guessing that's what the Picture Package runs by so I need to install the old one or redirect one of my Flash files, but I need your help for that.

I got you confused with the person who started the thread - a reason why you should start a seperate thread for your own problem.
