windows 8 flash install problem
Posted on 2013-06-23
i am trying to install flash activex for windows using group policy so it can be managed in the future.
i am running windows 8.
i am able to install other programs on this windows 8 machine using GP with no problem. (java, adobe reader, shockwave, and even the flash plugin). but i can't install flash activex.
i have tried disabling the antivirus software.
i get the same error if i try to run as admin manually by just browsing to msi file and running it...
i have tried a complete uninstall using adobe instructions and flash removal tool just to be sure it didnt think it was already there...
here is the error recorded in event viewer:
Product: Adobe Flash Player 11 ActiveX -- Error 1722.There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor. Action NewCustomAction1, location: C:\windows\TEMP\InstallAX_11_7_700_224.exe, command: -install -msi
