Adobe Flash player is no longer on my computer when I attempt to scan from my HP F4240 inkjet printer I get the message flash player must be installed is this going to require me to buy another printer or is there a run around?

Try this Solution:

Open up the run command with the "Windows Key + R" key combo > in folder Downloads double-click on the msi.
