I've removed the older flash version. The system installed the newest version when I ran the uninsaller. The same version that is on the windows site and that is installed in Windows 10. I deleted that and installed the most recent version but it still asks to reinstall flash. That is the scripted version I mean. When I go to the windows site asking for the newest version I see the adobe extended version. It signed by microsoft but it still says the newest version isn't available online. It should say not available. That is the script they show us on microsoft's site. There is no menu item for this script on the site.
What version of the ActiveX Control are you referring to specifically? The version you installed will be 10.2 (by default). Old versions of the ActiveX Control have to be removed manually (either by the user or by the uninstaller) because the installer checks the version of the Control before it install the ActiveX (and thus the ActiveX must be using a version of the ActiveX Control that the installer can work with).
The key difference between the uninstaller and that installer is that the uninstaller doesn't create any registry entries. The installer does (at least for me). That was one of the issues I had when I tried to uninstall using the uninstaller - that I had to delete the registry entries first (which isn't what the uninstaller does - so I went back to the installer).
The script was working before and if could uninstall that script but with the upgrade from 7 to 10 I now have the problem. I removed the script after which the latest version is installed and doing an uninstall does not remove the latest version.
The menu item is there in the Windows 10 installation. I right click on it and choose uninstall but it is still asking me to reinstall or to uninstall. Codeception tested that particular script. It did not test the uninstaller, though - and it still asks me to reinstall. That was a problem back up in the 7 to 10 upgrade. d2c66b5586
