    Insider Enterprise RS3 Adobe Flash Issues

    I just noticed that my install of Insider Enterprise has an "interesting " issue. Secunia PSI rightly tells me I need to update the Adobe Flash ActiveX version for that PC. It's at version when it should be at MS issued an update for that on April 11 (KB4018483) and it's installed on all the rest of my 1703 PCs. WU doesn't find it for this machine, and when I try to manually install KB4018483 downloaded from the Microsoft Update Catalog, it throws an error message instead:

    Can anybody shed light on this situation? The catalog page says this version is for all supported 64-bit versions of Windows 10 1703. I see now that I have the same problem on my Windows 10 1703 RS3 Insider for Windows 10 Pro as well. Is this a known gotcha for Insider Preview versions?
    Please advise and thanks!
