During installation process and when prompted, I close IE. However, adobe executable prompts, again, to close IE. Repeated attempts to "continue" installation result in same message to close IE.
I have no Flash versions on my computer.
Probably you still have IE process running even you close IE and disappeared from your desktop. You should check IE process in taskmanager and kill it for Flash Player installation. Or you can restart your computer and run downloaded/saved 'install_flashplayer11x32ax_***_aih.exe' file.
Thanks for the suggestion.
I didn't encounter the IE problem again. However, I finally got Adobe Flash to install successfully. The last thing I did prior to successful load was enable the Shockwave Flash object.
