    Hi Ken.You will need adobe air to install ZOOSK messenger.
    Did you get ZOOSK messenger from ZOOSK or somewhere else?
    Try installing the latest version of Adobe Air first.
    I read this on the ZOOSK site.

    I assumed the OP was going to uninstall - then re-install :)

    You could well be right, Ken:)

    I was thinking by installing the latest version of Adobe Air the older version would be automatically deleted on install like Adobe Flash Player does.:confused-92:

    Assuming that you installed the latest version of Adobe Air from their site http://get.adobe.com/air/ Then completely uninstall Zoosk and reinstall from their site.

    I tried it on my XP machine. No issues. I had to join the Zoosk site to get to the download.

    I download the Zoosk Messenger app from the Zoosk site. It installed as it should. After I quit out, Adobe Air came up and wanted to update itself. I allowed it.

    What version of Adobe AIR do you have installed?

    Hi RR. Download the latest version from here.
    Click on latest version on the right.
    http://www.filehippo.com/download_adobe_air/
    Then try and install again from ZOOSK site.
    Read every page carefully as you download.

    The ladies will wait for you.:biggrin:

    Hi again.

    KenB in Post 2 gave you 2 links.

    We need a yes or no answer so we can proceed.

    1. Did you install Revo and remove the program?
    2, Did you install the Microsoft FIXIT and run?
    Thanks:)
