The reason for seeing this error is of an older version of the Adobe Flash is not detecting the newer version which is already installed. Therefore, the older and newer versions get installed. To resolve this error message, use one of the methods below:

If you have already finished installing the Autodesk software, then you can either ignore the error as it will not affect the application installation and Flash will also work smoothly; else you can clean up both the installations of the Flash player. You should uninstall them and again re-install the latest version. But altogether, to prevent this from happening, follow these steps:

For standalone applications:

  • First, you must uninstall the Flash Player, and then install the Autodesk software. To read details on how to remove this, you can search on the Adobe website.

For network/multi-standalone deployments:

  • Go to the “AdminImage” folder and locate the “<deployment>.ini” file.
  • Open this file inNotepad.
  • Look for this line of text in the text file:
    • [ACAD]
  • Delete the word FLASH from the above line of text.
  • Save this file and click on X to close Notepad.
  • Try running the Autodesk software installation again.

If a module failed to register during the installation of Autodesk VIZ 2008, check that your computer meets the requirements. This type of error is most of the time related to compatibility. That’s why you need to check if the software is compatible with your computer. Autodesk VIZ 2008 supports Windows 2000 Service Pack 4, Windows XP Service Pack 2 (Home or Professional), and Windows Vista.

It requires 500 MHz or faster Intel or equivalent AMD processor, 512 MB RAM, 500 MB page file, 3 GB free space, Microsoft DirectX 9.0c-compatible video card, and 1024 x 768 minimum 32-bit resolution. Since you are using Windows XP but the application does not install, check if you have Service Pack 2 installed. Download Windows XP Service Pack 3 instead.

This is the latest and last Service Pack update for Microsoft Windows XP. See if this works. Also make sure that you are using an administrator account when installing Autodesk VIZ 2008. It won’t install on limited or non-admin accounts.
