Where do I find the Flash Player installation log on Windows?

On Windows, the file "FlashInstall.log" can be located in the following folder, depending on the type of operating system.

32 Bit Windows:
C:\Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash\FlashInstall.log
64 Bit Windows:
C:\Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash\FlashInstall.log
C:\Windows\syswow64\Macromed\Flash\FlashInstall.log

I posted that FYI so that I can post the following log files. Hopefully this will help troubleshoot the current install issues with Flash Player in certain versions of AutoPatcher.

My OS = Win 7 SP 1 x86/32-bit

Here is the log file I get when launching Flash Player for IE in AP 6140. The log files were similar for the other Flash Player installers in AP 6140.

Flash Player for IE in AP 6132:

Flash Player for Mozilla Firefox (NPAPI) in AP 6132:

Flash Player for Google Chrome & Opera (PPAPI) in AP 6132:

Hope this helps. I could not find anything to expain how to interpret these logs though.
