I cannot get the latest adobe flash player to install. It downloads a "helper file". I save the file, go to the download location, right-click on the file, select run as administrator, and it appears to start. But it never gets past the first adobe screen. I enlisted the help of another person who directed me to look at windows logs and I discovered the 1001 error. When I look for that error, I see that there is something that does not exist!
I have tried various means of going about this, always ending up at this same place. It would appear that your installer is very broken!!
