The error message is telling you that the Flash installer could not access the system registry to make the required changes.

You need to work with the IT department to get Flash 5 properly installed.

It sounds like your profile does not allow you to access the registry when installing software.

You need to have, or log on with the proper user rights to install software.

In order to manually update the registry to run Flash 5, you would need to know what keys to add and change.
