Just trying to install latest flash, using latest installer file.
But when I run the installer, it gives error: "Unable to load application configuration".
I have redownloaded installer file, couple days a go, yesterday and today. Didn't help.
I'm running osx 10.8.3.
File permissions are fixed.
Firewall on/off, tested.
Looks like that there are lot of problems with installer on OSX.
I managed to install 11.7 using offline installer, http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/licensing/mac /install_flash_player_11_osx.dmg .
It's great of Adobe to make people figure out their own answers. I had the same problem as you & fortunately I ran across your question. No thanks to Adobe...
