Yesterday, when all my troubles seemed so far away, Adobe Flash V24 was working.
Then, on insistence of Firefox I tried standard version upgrade from:
Adobe - Install Adobe Flash Player at link
...which failed as below.
After reading reams of postings I did a fresh restart and followed the directions at:
After confirming uninstall
"Sorry, Flash Player is either not installed or not enabled.
Please go to step 2.
...and selecting step 2
I still get the message:
""Adobe Download Manager has stopped working"
At which point Adobe Flash player installer still requires
Which results in
"installation will begin shortly"
...Which does not happen in 15 minutes
So X out results in
Which is another iteration of the loop -- GOTO TOP
This problem is not new to this release, I have had it before and once found some arcane process to defeat the automagic failure; which, unfortunately I have forgotten.
Could you share a screenshot of the "Adobe Download Manager has stopped working" window. Also please provide the FlashInstall.log and Adobe_ADM.log file from your machine. To get the location of the two please go through Where do I find the Flash Player installation log on Windows? page. Once you have collected the logs please upload/share the same. To know how to share the logs see How to share a document link. Please post the link to the uploaded files here.
