The Adobe Reader shouldn't interfere with the Flash Player Plug-in. If you have trouble with the ActiveX package, I recommend deleting everything related to the Adobe Flash and your favorite browser. Completely remove the Adobe Flash Player and the browser you use, then re-download the packages. The Adobe Flash Player 15 ActiveX is working just fine. I use it with Chrome and Firefox and it's working without problems. The version installed is: Version: 18.104.22.168. Access the Adobe Player page and download the new package after you have installed your browser.
