Right click the installer and "Run as Administrator"?
Even if you're logged in as an admin, this helps, surprisingly.
Thank you Mike. I did end up getting the Flash player installed. I looked through other messages on the forum and I found your response in the thread "Hi problems with installation of Flash Player?". Your advice was to Download the FULL offline installer. Bypass the "Downloader/Installer". That worked. I installed both the versions you linked for Internet Explorer as well as the one for all other browsers so that I would have Flash in both Firefox and Internet Explorer.
I wanted to be able to link to the original source of the Full Installer. I looked around on the Adobe site, but I couldn't find it. I would always end up at the page with the installer that failed.
The next time I get an alert that a Flash update is available, I will follow your advice and try to run it as Administrator and see if it makes a difference.
For what it's worth, Flash updates have worked in the past, and it was only in the update from version 11 to version 12 that I had trouble each time.
Whenever I do a Flash update, I select the option to be alerted when an update is available, not to have it update automatically. Maybe that has been a mistake, and I should let it up update on its own.
