Flash Player Problems with Mac Power PC

May 17, 2012 12:05 PM

Tags: #flash #mac #pc #power

I have tried all the suggestions on this forum about how to install Flash Player for a Power PC Mac running 10.5.8. I still get the notice to install Flash Player. Is there something else that could be wrong? I ran the debugger, don't have any firewalls running etc. I finally got it to download and install but where is it going?

    What sites are you having problems with?  Do you see your Flash Player version listed here?

    What version of Flash Player should I use with my Power PC based Mac?

    Did you receive an error when you tried to run through the Power PC FAQ?  If so, what did it say?

    Could you verify that third party plugins are enabled in Safari's preferences dialog?

    Barbara,

     

    Could you please check if JavaScript is enabled?

     

    Thanks,

    Sunil

    Can you post the contents of the page that is displayed when you go to Safari's Help -> Installed Plug-ins page?

    Hi Chris,

     

    I used this link: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/895134?tstart=0

     

    Where you said the following,

     

    'Please try the following:

     

    1. Follow the instructions for uninstalling Flash Player on the Mac: Uninstall Flash Player | Mac

    2. Mount the flashplayer10_1r102_64_ub_mac.dmg and try installing again

    3. If it still fails, right click on "Install Adobe Flash Player" and select "Show Package Contents". 

    4. Navigate into the /Contents/Resources/ folder and double click the Adobe Flash Player.pkg file.

     

    Thanks,

    Chris'

     

     

    It didn't help though.

     

    I tried step 4 and the installer says, "You cannot install. There is nothing to install."

     

    So now, what am I to do??

     

    Thanks.

    Hi Barbara,

    That's true, but I don't believe your version of Safari will have this security feature.  Did you find Flash listed in Safari's Help->Installed Plugins page?

     

    mac user,

    Did you get that error when double clicking the pkg file?
