Adobe Flash Player Install Error 2753


Hello Wirt,

The error you are getting is usually caused by wrong installer registry entries for the Adobe Flash Player application.

To resolve it, use the following workaround:

  • You will need to try to remove all installed Adobe Flash Player versions on your computer through the Control Panel.
  • Make that you uninstall both ActiveX/Plugin as well as  x86/x64 versions.
  • After you have done that, you can retry installing Adobe Flash Player again.

In the event that the above workaround fails, you will need to open the registry editor (regedit.exe) and then go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTInstallerProducts

The sub-keys this registry key has have got the installer registry settings for the application you have installed on your computer.

Every application that has been has got a unique GUID that make it a bit difficult to find the Adobe Flash Player entries.

This GUID key is not the same for the different Flash versions.

Therefore, what you will need to do if press CTRL+F on the keyboard to open the find function in the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTInstallerProducts key so that you can locate  “Adobe Flash” and then get rid of the  corresponding GUID key.

You are receiving this error due to some incorrect registry values in your Adobe Flash Player. Remove all the Adobe Flash Player components and the ActiveX/ Plugin and x86 or x64 versions to perform a clean installation.

And then reinstall it back. 

If this doesn't work, expand your registry to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTInstallerProducts.

This is where the installer registry settings is located. Press Ctrl+F in the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTInstallerProducts to locate the Adobe Flash Player and then delete the GUID key similar to this one:


After removing the keys, close the registry editor window.

You can now install Adobe Flash Player again.
