i try to install adobe AIR on my macbook with osX Lion but when click on the installer the installation window does not appear.
I can post also the crash report.
This is the system.log file related:

If you're still running into this issue, could you try disabling gpu switching in your energy saver control panel in system preferences? Once that's disabled, try installing again.
This solved numerous install and runtime issues for me as well. All my AIR apps were crashing with segfaults or bus errors, the AIR uninstaller would crash every time as well and when I ran the AIR installer it would give me an error message saying that it required AIR to be installed in order to run. After turning off Graphics Switching, all of these problems stopped and AIR is working well again.
I agree that an issue this severe needs to be made MUCH more visible until it is completely addressed. I had an incredibly problematic week because I was travelling and needed to run an AIR application on my Macbook in order to create and present application mockups to a major client. In the end I had to crate a virtual installation of windows XP and run the AIR application from there - knowing there was such a simple workaround would have made my life much easier!
I have a customer using Klok that is running into a similar issue. But to make things even more confusing, the problems only occur for a single user account. When, logging in as someone else everything is working fine. Also, none of the suggestions about turning off graphics switching or running Chrome/Firefox solve the problem for this one user. It is very strange indeed.
