Flash installer crashes on OS X 10.9 Mavericks

I'm trying to install Flash Player on OS X 10.9 (clean install of Mavericks).

The install file is AdobeFlashPlayerInstaller_11_ltrosxd_aaa_aih.dmg just downloaded from the Adobe website, so Version 11.9.900.117.


Mavericks has been clean installed after formatting the hard drive. All Mavericks updates have been completed.


The crash log is here.


I've run a disk check, repair permissions, even re-installed the entire OS (not clean this time, just over the top).

I've run update_dyld_shared_cache -force, redownloaded the installer many times, run the uninstaller (in case the Adobe CS6 suite installed a copy with it), rebooted, tried the installer again.


I've run out of things to try, and can't find anyone else reporting similar problems (Mavericks hasn't been out that long!)


I'd appreciate any advice for further testing, or any help interpreting the log file as I couldn't spot anything useful in it.


Thanks for any help you can give.

    Have you done a "clean install" of Flash Player?

    That's because the installer that most people use ISN'T a full installer. It's what they call a "stub" installer, and has to download the rest of the file.
