My Secunia PSI reports that my AdobeFlashPlayer (ActiveX) is on 14.0.0.145 and the latest is 14.0.0.176. When I click on "install solution" it tries to install, and stops, giving me the following message: "Error 1721. There is a problem with the Windows Installer package. A program required for this install to complete could not be run."

Help! I've never run into this before.

Windows 7, 64-bit. However, while AdobeFlashPlayer 14.x (ActiveX) wouldn't install through Secunia, it did install through my Avast software updater. Go figure. Thanks, anyway.

There are many reports of installs not working via Secunia PSI. The advice normally given is not to use any update links from them.

Pleased you are all fixed up - have a nice weekend.

Yes, thanks, Maurice. I've usually gone straight to the product vendor for the updates, but for some reason this time it wouldn't update via Adobe, either! However, all is good now.
