Is your windows 10 32 or 64 bit?

Is that Flood II or an older Flood version you had in an older version of photoshop?

> I have no idea..if it is or not? I am trying to find out?>

It runs, at least on my Mac with El Capitan and 2018. It offers you a way to drag and drop into a Plug-ins folder as its method for installation. Try this instead: Right-click and copy the folder. Then navigate to the Application folder for 2018 itself. If there isn't a "Plug-ins" folder, create one (I have one and don't know if I created it myself or it was there, since the proper Plug-ins folder is now in the Hard Drive Library). Paste the folder into the application's Plug-ins folder.

I confess that first I placed it where plug-ins are supposed to be installed in Mac's HD library in the Plug-ins folder there. Then I tried the Applications folder, and finally what worked was placing it in the 2018 Plug-ins folder. I've left the others in place in case one of them is helping—Topaz, for instance, installs a bunch of stuff in the Applications folder, as well as in other places.

Let us know if that works for you.
