Windows 7: Trying to play a game - Flash.ocx is missing - Game wont launch

Trying to play a game - Flash.ocx is missing - Game wont launch

The title pretty much sums everything up.
I downloaded a game called R.O.D.E Online, its a free mmorpg
I installed the game, everything went well.
When I tried to launch the game nothing happens, after clicking on the launcher a few times I get an error message that says this:

Program compatibility assistant
This program requires a missing windows component:
"This program requires flash.ocx, which is no longer included in this version of Windows."

I have browsed to the installation folder and directly clicked on the launcher file, the game launches but when I try to play it says I need to download the newest patches. Well the file that gives me the error is the launcher which downloads the patches.

I have searched for answers for this error for about 2 hours.. It seems others have had this error for other programs but it wasn't essential to fix for the program to run. I have been unable to find a solution so any help is much much appreciated.

Thank You!

Have you tried running it in compatibility mode?

Do you have the latest version of Adobe Flash Player?
