    Cannot work around "no actionlist" error on Vista


      OS: Windows Vista

      Browser: FF 18

      Flash Player ver. 11.6.602.180

      Verified my system meets requirements

      Read the "Windows Installation Help" and "Flash Player installation and update questions and answers" pages


      I cannot upgrade Flash Player to current version 11.7.700.169 because of a “no actionlist” error message.


      Here's what I've done to try to resolve this issue:


      • Uninstalled Flash using a downloaded executable
      • Manually removed the contents at the following paths:  C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash , %appdata%\Adobe\Flash Player , %appdata%\Macromedia\Flash Player
      • Rebooted
      • Verified the uninstall worked by visiting http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/155/tn_15507.html
      • Downloaded the 11.7.x version of player, ran the installer again, and got the same "no actionlist" error
      • Resaearched "no actionlist" on the Adobe forum and found a resolution to a similar message (dated March 2013) that provided a direct link to an installer
      • Installed using that exe but it's outdated and installed version 11.6.


      I'd really like to get v. 11.7.700.169, so any help is greatly appreciated.
