After downloading flashplayer26ax_rd_install.exe from the Adobe Flash download site Adobe Flash Player Install for all versions
I close the browser and run the install from Windows Explorer as an administrator.
The install starts then the error message appears Application Initialization Error
flashplayer26ax_rd_install.exe is automatically deleted from my downloads folder.
I am using Windows 7 Ultimate x64 and IE ver11.0.9600.18738
I have removed previous version of Adobe Flash player because I was getting an error saying my browser had blocked the application from starting.
When I checked add-ons Adobe Flash was not listed. This happened in IE 11 and Firefox.54.0.1 (32-bit)
Any ideas how to fix this? This is the only version of Adobe Flash Player I can find.
Only reply if you know the answer and are willing to share it.
We'll need to review the online/web installer installation files to troubleshoot the 'Application Initialization' error. Please upload the 2 files, Adobe_ADM.log and Adobe_GDE.log, saved at CC:\Users\<YourUserID>\AppData\Local\Temp\Adobe_ADMLogs to cloud.acrobat.com/send using the instructions at How to share a document. Post the link to the uploaded files in your reply.
