I have a brand-new Toshiba Satellite laptop with Win 8.  It did not come with any version of Flash Player installed.  When I try to install the latest version from Adobe's website, it downloads, says it's installing, then ends with "Installation failed. No version of Flash Player was installed."  No explanation of why it failed.  Why would this be happening?  I can (and have) downloaded and installed several other programs without a hitch.

 

I found several possible solutions on the internet, but they mostly all involved uninstalling the current version of Flash, which in my case is nonexistent.

What browser are you using? Different browsers require different versions of Flash.

I use the latest version of Firefox.  I've also tried to get the Flash plug-in through FF, to no avail.

Did you get that via Firefox extensions?

Yes.  Got the same message both ways I tried.
