Trouble installing Adobe Flash Player 11.9.900.170 on Mac OS X 10.9

Jan 2, 2014 4:10 AM

Hello dear experts,

 

since the last update of Adobe Flash Player I cannot install the application anymore.

 

The installation cancels with a general error message.

 

Mac's console shows the following messages:

 

02.01.14 12:34:21,000 kernel[0]: hfs: mounted Adobe Flash Player Installer on device disk1s2

If I install with the -debug option with the offline installer Mac's console show the following:

 

02.01.14 12:54:15,663 launchservicesd[444]: Application App:"Adobe Flash Player Install Manager" asn:0x0-71071 pid:1586 refs=7 @ 0x7fd968e687f0 tried to be brought forward, but isn't in fPermittedFrontApps ( ( "LSApplication:0x0-0x72072 pid=1591 "SecurityAgent"")), so denying. : LASSession.cp #1481 SetFrontApplication() q=LSSession 100004/0x186a4 queue

}

 

 

If I try to start the installation using the Adobe Flash Player.pkg in the „Resources“ folder I cannot chose my hard drive to install flash.

The following log messages can relate to this:

02.01.14 12:59:16,100 Installer[1641]: *** WARNING: -[NSImage compositeToPoint:operation:] is deprecated in MacOSX 10.8 and later. Please use -[NSImage drawAtPoint:fromRect:operation:fraction:] instead.

02.01.14 12:59:16,101 Installer[1641]: *** WARNING: -[NSImage compositeToPoint:fromRect:operation:] is deprecated in MacOSX 10.8 and later. Please use -[NSImage drawAtPoint:fromRect:operation:fraction:] instead.

I think this exception is thrown if I click on my hard drive’s symbol in the installer.

I have the same problem when I try to install Microsoft’s last Office update. Maybe there is a connection?

 

I tried several older versions of the Adobe Flash Player installer, but they didn't work as well.

Perhaps we have some kind of "Mavericks" problem here?

 

Any help would be highly appreciated!

 

Thank you very much in advance.

 

Kind regards

 

Oliver

    The latest Flash player is 100% compatible with Mavericks. I have it and have had it since the morning Mavericks was released, with no problems in Safari, Opera, or Firefox.

     

    The fact that you have problems installing Office updates as well, indicates you have either a disk permissions error or something went wrong with your Mavericks install.
