HP 6500, Vista, Solution Center screen blank

When I initiate HP Solution Center to set scan setting for my new 6500N Office Jet (Running wireless under Vista), I get the Solution Center splash screen and then a blank solution center screen and nothing farther.

 

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Solution Center from the CD that came with the printer, no change.

 

The printer otherwise works OK.

That was the magic answer! Installing Flash under IE 8 resolved the problem.

 

Thanks for the quick and insightful response.

Have you installed Adobe Flash Player on your PC?

Yes, I do have Flash installed. Just in case it had become corrupted, I uninstalled and reinstalled it. No change.

 

Is there a difference with Flash Player as a Firefox plugin? Are there multiple versions of Flash?

I think Flash player for IE and other browsers are different. SC needs the Flash player to be installed through IE, and not the offline installation file.
