    Try the following: download the offline installer from yer-windows.html#main-pars_header and save it to disk, then close all browser windows, right-click on the downloaded installer and select Run as Administrator.


    If the problem persists, can you post the contents of the FlashInstall.log file in C:\Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash
