Verifying Adobe Flash Player Installation for Firefox 51

This section provides a tutorial example on how to verify that Adobe Flash Player is installed properly for Firefox 51 on Windows 7 systems

After finishing the installation process of Adobe Flash Player for Firefox on a Windows 7 system, how do you know it is installed properly? Here is what I did to verify the installation:

1. Open the installation log file, FlashInstall.log, in C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash. The log file contains these lines:

... C:\windows\system32\Macromed\Flash\\* 3
... C:\Users\herong\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash 
   Player\\bin\* 3
... "C:\windows\system32\Macromed\Temp
   -install -skipARPEntry -iv 8 -au 2
... Software\Macromedia\FlashPlayerPlugin/PlayerPath 2
... Software\Macromedia\FlashPlayerPlugin/Version 2
... C:\windows\SysWOW64\FlashPlayerCPLApp.cpl
... SOFTWARE\MozillaPlugins\ 2
... SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
   \Adobe Flash Player NPAPI/ 2
... SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
   \Adobe Flash Player Plugin/ 2
... Software\Mozilla\MaintenanceService\extensions/Plugins 2
... Software\Opera Software/Last CommandLine 2
... Software\Opera Software/Last CommandLine 2
... Software\Opera Software/Plugin Path 2
... Software\Opera Software/Plugin Path 2
... C:\windows\system32\Macromed\Flash\FlashUtil64_25_0_0_127_Plugin.exe
... C:\windows\system32\Macromed\Flash\FlashUtil64_25_0_0_127_Plugin.dll
... C:\windows\system32\Macromed\Flash\plugin.vch
... C:\windows\SysWOW64\FlashPlayerCPLApp.cpl

2. Run "Uninstall a Programs" in Control Panel. You see "Adobe Flash Player 25 NPAPI" listed as an installed program.

3. Run Firefox 51 and visit the Adobe Flash Player verification page at You see "You have version 25,0,0,127 installed" displayed in the "Version Information" box in the middle of the page.

Now I am sure that I have installed Adobe Flash Player Plugin 25 for Firefox on my Windows 7 system.
