Install Hangs at Installing File FP_AX_MSI_Installer.exe or SP_AX_MSI_INSTALLER.exe (Flash Player)

When installing QuickBooks you may see the progress hang when you get to the point in the progress string with the description “Installing Flash...” Status will show “Installing File FP_AX_MSI_INSTALLER.exe.”  or  "Installing File SP_AX_MSI_INSTALLER.exe"
Installation hangs at this point.
Why this is happening

 This is caused by a hidden warning box about the Flash version. The version issue that it refers to should not be a problem. All you need to do is get to this message window and click the OK button. 

QuickBooks 2011 and later is compatible with Flash Player ActiveX, version 10, but works with many other versions as well.
