Trying to install flash player 18 as a post-installation task, but I keep getting "application initialization error." Tried to use -install and /install, but neither of them worked.

I've used the MSIs from here successfully.

  • Thanks this worked. The exe worked for previous versions of Flash, but couldn't get it to work on this one.
    • Look at the file size you have uploaded. 1.1 MB is the Online installer. The offline installer should be around 17 to 18 MB.

It looks like you have the "stub" installer. You need to download the Full EXE from:
