Windows 10: Adobe Air installation error

    Adobe Air installation error

    I have been trying for a long time now to update Adobe Air but I keep getting this error:

    "An error occurred while installing Adobe AIR. Installation may not be allowed by your administrator. Please contact your administrator."

    I am the administrator. Every thing I find online is outdated (not for Win 10). I have software that needs Adobe Air and I'd like to update.

    Thank you.

    hi dsamalot.

    Had a very similar issue the other day with reader. I uninstalled reader and then installed fresh right from site. \

    Might work in your situation as well.

    I would never push anyone away from forum but Adobe also has forum and help page.

    Hi Ken,
    Thank you for replying.

    Yeah, I've tried to uninstall and I still get the same message so cannot uninstall. I had also looked into Adobe's support but most of their information is actually outdated.

    Any other ideas?
    Thank you :)

    Well, you could try creating another Admin account and see if you have success with it.

    You could also enable the built in Administrator account and with its authority remove it. I would then disable buit in Admin.
