Operating system: OS X 10.5.8
Processor: 2.1 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Browser: Safari 5.0.6 (have also tried on latest version of firefox)
I have tried so many times to install flash player and each time the download stope (usually at 0%) and doesn't give a reason. I was looking through other threads and I have found that my flash player plugin is in the Internet Plug-Ins (Disabled) folder but I've no idea how to enable it again. Plug ins are enabled under preferences. Could this be the problem? Thanks.
I am having the same problem I've tried to uninstall all of Adobe Flash and reinstall 11.2 with no luck. I am running Mac OS X 10.6.8 on a MacBook w/ 2 Ghz Intel core 2 Duo. Now I'm at the point where almost every video we need to access is restricted. Is there anyone else having this problem? Adobe please fix!!!.
In Safari, go to Help > Installed Plug-ins. Can you see Shockwave Flash in the list?
@Webbervillecarnut: Have you gone through this link: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/installation-problems-flash-pla yer-mac.html#Flash_Player_for_Safari
It has step-by-step information on installing Flash Player.
I don't have shockwave installed. So I should do that first yes? I had flash player before so I must have had it and I have no idea how it has been unintalled. Should I also change the flash player plug-in from disabled? I don't know how to do that! Thanks very much for your help with this.
Update: I installed flash shockwave successfully but still couldn't install flash player. Got the message "This installation failed" at 0%.
Could you both try these steps for installing Flash Player?
1. Download and mount the dmg from http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/18.104.22.168/inst all_flash_player_osx.dmg
2. Right click on the "Install Adobe Flash Player" icon and select "Show Package Contents".
3. Navigate into the /Contents/Resources/ folder and double click the Adobe Flash Player.pkg file.
I've got the same problem, the progress bar hangs up on 95% and won't let me shut the computer down. I've taken all three steps you recommended and the Install Plugin applet hung up as well! It says:
Mac OSX 10.7.5
2.7 GHz Intel Core i7
Shockwave Flash installed.
Can you help me to solve this?
So, are you on Flash Player 11.5.502.110 now? If not, can you try installing from this link?
