When you try to open a website that uses VBScript detection for Flash Player in Microsoft Internet Explorer, you receive an error similar to the following:
This VBScript detection issue is resolved by running the Flash Player uninstaller released on May 11 2006 (version 188.8.131.52) or later, and reinstalling the latest Flash Player.
The Flash Player uninstaller fixes permissions in the Windows registry and allows Flash Player to install successfully.
This detection failure is due to an incomplete installation of Flash Player. Specifically, version-dependent registry keys used by the VBScript detection are missing, such as HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash.8 for Flash Player 8. This detection failure can happen even if the latest Flash Player is installed and the Flash8b.ocx file is in the C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash folder.
