Errors Installing Adobe Flash

While attempting to install Adobe Flash, if you get the following message:

MessageBox: 12582960,”Failed to install.
For troubleshooting tips, please see http://www.adobe.com/go/tn_19166″

Do the following:

Download SubInACL by going to:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=E8BA3E56-D8FE-4A91-93CF-ED6985E3927B&displaylang=en

Once you have this installed create a file named “reset.cmd” You can use notepad to create this file, but make sure its not a text file.

In the file, add the following:

cd “C:Program FilesWindows Resource KitsTools”
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /grant=administrators=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER /grant=administrators=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT /grant=administrators=f
subinacl /subdirectories %SystemDrive% /grant=administrators=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /grant=system=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER /grant=system=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT /grant=system=f
subinacl /subdirectories %SystemDrive% /grant=system=f

Let this run and then it should allow you to install Adobe Flash. You may notice some errors but ignore them, as they don’t really matter.
