    It's possible the flash player is already on the system but not enabled. You give no system information for the computer or browser, but I will "assume" Windows XP, IE:

    Open IE> tools> Manage Add-ons>>there are two sections here: 1. Add-ons currently loaded and 2. Add-ons previously used> change the dialog box by clicking on the small arrow point to the right of it> look in each section until you find "shockwave flash object"> click to highlight> click on Enable> Apply> OK.

    I hope this works for you. This is a common thing-flash player on but not enabled.
