    Flash Player Installation Issues


      Im having some issues installing flash player on clients and hoping someone has seen this and been able to resolve.


      We're running wePOS (SP3) with IE8.


      On 90% of our clients we're successfully running flash Version 10.3  - old as the hills - I know....


      The remaining machines will not install either Flash ActiveX 10.3 or any of the later versions - I'd be more than happy to upgrade everything to 13 if I could get it working on all machines.


      I get the same message for each attempted installation.  The installation runs to 100% then the message appears: 

           The installation encountered errors:

                The activeX control for flash player could not be registered


      I've been through multiple forum posts most of which suggest courses of action I'd already taken,

           Using the flash player uninstall application

           Downloading re-distributable versions of the application and running those installs (EXE and MSI variants)

           Deleting the c:\Windows\System32\Macromed directory and Software registry hives before re-install    

           Checking the IE Add Ins

           Removing Shockwave and re-trying all of the above

           Downloading and executing the Windows registry permissions fixes as described:



      All to no avail.


      In every case I've been either logged on as the local admin account of the machine or a member of the local admins group.


      I've attached the file from the last installation attempt:
