Windows 8 and 8.1 are already shipping with flash for IE, so you don't 
have to install it.
That has always been the case since the release of Windows 8, so it is 
nothing new for flash 16.

Below find my solution by only installing and checking flash for IE on 
Windows 7 and below.

'---code start (watch for line wraps)

     <package id="AdobeFlashPlayer16" name="Adobe Flash Player 16" revision="%PKG_VERSION%" reboot="false" priority="10">

         <variable name="PKG_VERSION"   value="" />
         <variable name="PKG_SHORT_VER" value="16" />
         <variable name="PKG_SOURCE"    value="%SOFTWARE%\Flash Player" />

         <check type="uninstall" condition="versiongreaterorequal" path="Adobe Flash Player %PKG_SHORT_VER% ActiveX" value="%PKG_VERSION%"
         <check type="uninstall" condition="versiongreaterorequal" path="Adobe Flash Player %PKG_SHORT_VER% NPAPI"  value="%PKG_VERSION%" />

         <install include="remove" />
         <install cmd='"%PKG_SOURCE%\install_flash_player_%PKG_SHORT_VER%_active_x.exe" /install ' os="(5\.[1-9]|6\.[01])\.\d{4}"/>
         <install cmd='"%PKG_SOURCE%\install_flash_player_%PKG_SHORT_VER%_plugin.exe" /install ' />

         <upgrade include="install" />
         <downgrade include="install" />

         <remove cmd='"%PKG_SOURCE%\install_flash_player_%PKG_SHORT_VER%_active_x.exe" -uninstall' >
             <exit code="any" />
         <remove cmd='"%PKG_SOURCE%\install_flash_player_%PKG_SHORT_VER%_plugin.exe" -uninstall' >
             <exit code="any" />

'---code end
