  • Microsoft Works Suite 2006


When you try to open Microsoft Encarta after you perform a complete installation of Microsoft Works Suite 2006, you receive the following error message:

Macromedia Flash Player 7.0 is not installed on your computer. Go to Add or Remove Programs, and click Change to start the installation of the wizard. Choose Repair and follow the on-screen instructions.


This behavior occurs when the MS06-020 (913433) security fix is installed on a Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2)-based computer before you install Works Suite 2006. The MS06-020 security fix prevents Macromedia Flash Player from installing. Macromedia Flash Player is part of the Works Suite 2006 installation.


To resolve this behavior, install the most recent version of Flash Player.

Note On April 18, 2005 Adobe Systems Incorporated acquired Macromedia. Macromedia Flash Player was superseded by Adobe Flash Player.

To install the most recent version of Flash Player, follow these steps:

  1. Start Microsoft Windows Explorer.
  2. Open the following folder:
