    Flash player update: "Application initialization error"

    Verbal

      I receive the error "Application initialization error" after running the flash installation file.

      Running a company computer, Windows 7/SP1, where I have local admin rights.  Running all as admin.

      Attempted on IE8 (don't ask - company reqirement & a long story) and Firefox 31.6.0.

      Current Flash version 16.0.0.305.

          I got the same error message.  When I noticed it happened multiple times with different programs (Adobe Flash Player and Adobe Reader) I realized it's being blocked.  Since I could not disable my BullGuard antivirus, I exited the program for the period of time of installation.  It allowed me to install the programs.  So try disabling your security/antivirus program.
