After a restart the installation was successfully. Due to a lot of work sometimes you don't think on the easiest way. Thank you for Support!

Still same message. I assume something is wrong with the MSI provided by the distribution page.

I downloaded the MSI from the german distribution page.

1722 is a generic Windows MSI error, unfortunately, is not very helpful by itself, although there's another error code in your excerpt that may be more telling, but I'll need the entire FlashInstall log files and corresponding verbose MSI log file (for the same installation) to investigate further.  The FlashInstall log file is saved at the following location:

32-bit OS: C:\WIndows\System32\Macromed\Flash\FlashInstall32.log

64-bit OS: C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\FlashInstall64.log AND C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\FlashInstall32.log (both files are required from a 64-bit OS)

Upload the FlashInstall log file AND corresponding MSI verbose log file (you may need to run the installation again to get both for the same installation attempt) to cloud.acrobat.com\send using the instructions at How to share a document and post the link to the uploaded files in your reply.

Thank you.

Thank you for the update.  One of the errors seemed to indicate an app that uses Flash Player was running and needed to be closed for the installation to complete.  The log file would have confirmed this.  Since it worked after restarting I suspect this was indeed the issue as restarting the system would have terminated all processes.


Thanks again.
