Thanks so much, it worked.
I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS WORKED. WOW!!! This past weekend I have spent more hours than I care to remember to get Flash Player 13 installed on my Windows XP computer. I am computer savay...but this was a total enigma for me. I followed the Adobe trouble shooting page and tried everything to a T. No good! I even tried a posting on the MS Community where I downloaded an Adobe uninstall program, then rebooted my computer, then downloaded a "SubInAcl" program to a folder and then downloaded a "reset_fp10.zip" file to the the same folder...clicked on this .bat file and ran the SubInAcl file...then tried to download Flash Player at the Adobe website...and got the same error message..."Failed to Install." This was a half hour ago...after trying last Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday...and today. Then it dawned on me as a last resort to try this Adobe Forum. It is beyond me why on the Adobe Troubleshooting installation web page that there was no mention of this simple solution...or I did not see it. I have spent hours searching the Internet and found no such solution as yours...running the "Flash Player 13 MSI Installer." I can't thank you enough after hours and hours and hours of trying to fix this problem...lo and behold...YOUR RECOMMENDATION WAS THE FIX. Thank you so much. I am most appreciative.
