The following commands should do it:
C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\FlashUtil32_<version_number>_ActiveX.exe -update plugin
C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\FlashUtil32_<version_number>_Plugin.exe -update plugin
If you have installed Flash Player successfully, go the C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash folder and get the correct names for the exe files.
Then click Start > Run. Type the command and press Enter.
I'm on Windows 7 Pro x64 and have currently Flash 11.3.300.271 installed (which is outdated right now).
I almost never reboot my PC but always put it to hybernation and simply resume. I only see the Adobe Updater dialog when I reboot my PC, which I do not do often; i.e. Adobe updates Flash more often then I reboot my PC.
When I try the above mentioned, I only get a Dialog saying to "Download" the player which opens the browser to the Download page.
But how can I trigger the update dialog I see when I reboot my PC and Flash deems an update is in order?
Btw, I set Flash update to notify me and not automatically download stuff.

The installer should automatically install both 32-bit & 64-bit players on a 64-bit system; download the installer(s) from http://helpx.adobe.com/content/help/en/flash-player/kb/installation-problems-flash-player- windows.html#main-pars_header
