    Windows 10 - Flash.ocx Install corrupted

    Seems my Flash installation on Widnwos 10. Build 10547 x64 it's corrupted....

    I cannot play flash contents into Edge or IE 11 right now...

    I've downloaded

    But i cannot install it it say: THIS UPDATE IS NOT APPLICABLE TO YOUR COMPUTER

    I really cannot find a way to update Flash.ocx into C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash folder.....
    Now flash plugin doesn't also appear into IE 11 Addons...

    I lost whole day trying to figure out how to repait flash WITHOUT reinstalling Windows...

    Any hints please?

    SFC and DISM didn't fixed this issue....

    I had to do a search for the KB3087040 in the Windows Download Site. It would not install for me either.

    Here it says 8.1 but it is the same

    Download Security Update for Internet Explorer Flash Player for Windows 8.1 (KB3087040) from Official Microsoft Download Center

    Maybe a dumb question, but, did you turn off active x filtering in IE so flash will play on what ever site you needed it for? You know the little "forbidden" circle next to the refresh arrow in the address barClick image for larger version.

    Both helps u posted above didn't fixed anything...alredy tried past days... as i said

    I've ALREADY downloaded Windows10.0-KB3087916-x64_95e4233d6375bf61cf180006fe597e198f5b6b3f.msu and error say: THIS UPDATE IS NOT APPLICABLE TO YOUR COMPUTER

    Same with windows10.0-kb3087040-x64_ad0f78efb7b122fa9472dbb8050c4f358aceab49.msu

    Filtering it's OFF ofc..i'm not so noob :P

    I also ran:

    regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\macromed\flash\flash.ocx
    regsvr32 c:\windows\sysWOW64\macromed\flash\flash.ocx

    and they SUCCEDED but i still cannot upgrade or repair flash.. in fact acutally Flash.ocs version it's still at:

    Windows Update DO NOT offer me update for it... looks like some reg keys got corrupted.... is there any way to re-install flash manually? editing registry? Someone could plz provide content of c:\windows\system32\macromed folder? I dunno...

    Was your zip content from c:\windows\system32\macromed\flash\ OR c:\windows\sysWOW64\macromed\flash\? Are files the same in both folders? If not... can u provide other one? Please.
