Adobe flash player not installing

Specs: Windows XP , 2.3Ghz /4 GB
I have the file and everytime I try and install the player it brings up an error saying there isn't enough space to install. I think the problem is for what ever reason XP made the Hard Drive the H:\ drive and not C:\ drive. Could that be what is causing this error? If so how would I get around it?

See if it works, after you clean out Temporary files from their folders using this ---

Space isn't even remotely the issue. I have 181 GB of free space. it should run with no problems but it keeps saying there isn't enough space...doesn't say where just that there isn't. is there a way to tell the installer where to install the file?

Oh and one more thing. Does any one have any idea where to find the drivers for a Microsoft wireless comfort keyboard/mouse 1.0a model number 1027? I have looked everywhere but all I find is that Driver Doctor thing.

I don't know if it's the reason in this case, but there are a very few programs that don't work right if they aren't installed on the C: drive.

If you just did a reinstall, you might consider doing it again. If you had an external device connected (USB for example), that might have been why Windows ended up on the H: drive.
If you do try it again, watch the install screens very closely.

that's what blows my mind. I had nothing hooked up except the hdd I wanted it on and monitor, keyboard and that stuff no other drives. What I did was completely redo all the guts of the system and a clean install of XP home on an empty drive. oh well, is there a way to specify where the flash player installs to?

"no other drives"

No camera or anything else connected to USB or Firewire?

"is there a way to specify where the flash player installs to?"

If it Doesn't give you that option during the install, probably not.

I use a Flash Player clone, which has worked 'very' well for me.

nope no other drives at all via firewire/usb/esata. just the monitor, keyboard, mouse(usb), the Printer (usb), and speakers. I will prob go a different route also.

In my response number 1, I was refering to cleaning out the TEMP folders using Disk Cleanup, and not refering to HDD free space.

The clone didn't work. Is there another way to use something like it on Firefox? It still doesn't find enough space and it is going to the H drive
