I noticed some unusual behavior with the latest flash uninstaller, can someone explain please?
I download the 32bit flash uninstaller for Windows.
When I double-click the uninstaller, a confirmation window appears asking whether I want to run the file.
I select run, then a 2nd confirmation window appears asking again if I want to run the file.
When I select run this time, I get a UAC prompt asking if I want to continue.
Why are there 2 request to run the uninstaller?
If I select run for the first prompt, but cancel the second prompt, the UI for the flash player uninstaller still appears.
I didn't go any further as this behavior was suspicious enough for me to stop. Instead I used a previously saved flash player uninstaller.
I'm wondering what would that second run prompt have executed if I had let it run?
Thanks for the replies.
System is Vista SP2 x86.
Behavior is still the same if I right-click and select open.
I'm still presented with 2 run windows, with only the 2nd one requiring UAC confirmation.
I was also thinking maybe I had executed the uninstaller twice, but surely then I would be seeing a UAC prompt after clicking run on both confirmation windows, not just one.
I do not know why this is happening; never seen this before.
Can you try to let it run completely (by clicking OK every time it asks), then post the contents of the FlashInstall.log file (from C:\Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash) here in the forum? Maybe we can see from that log file what is happening.
Could you post the contents of your flashinstall.log so we can review it?
