Unable to use flash.ocx, Bad Image

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -

Hi Whizzes,

I get this error message when I am in process of Flash player installation in the computer. For your information, I have Windows XP operating system with 32-bit and 500GB hard disk. I tried to reinstall the application several times but still I get this error message. I even tried to reboot the system and reinstall it again but nothing helped me. I need your support, please help me. Thanks.

The program that is trying to access the Flash Player is having trouble. So this issue is appearing.

First, uninstall the older version of Flash Player on your computer. To do so,

  1. Go to Control Panel >> Programs >> Programs and Features.
  2. Find out “Adobe Flash Player”.
  3. Right-click on it and select “Uninstall”.
  4. Follow the instruction.

Now, download and install the latest Flash Player from Adobe. Download Adobe Flash Player.

This will install the latest version of Adobe Flash Player along a new and fresh version of the “Flash.ocx”.
