Is your Mac Intel or PowerPC? It makes a HUGE difference.
My Mac is an intel. I have had it for 6 years and I have had no problems
with flash player it has played all of my videos and music. Until I needed
an updated version a few days ago and tired downloading it..instead it said
to uninstall my current an install the newer version. Well this didn't
work, now I have no flash player. And when I go to flash player website to
download, it says my computer isn't compatible.
Here's your dilemna:
OS 1.0 5 was the FINAL "Universal Binary" build of OS X that Mac ever made - meaning it ran on PowerPC and Intel Macs. Because of that, software (including Flash Player) for OS 10.5 was of a different framework to be compatible with either processor architecture.
THAT's the most recent build of Flash Player that will run on 10.5.8. Unfortunately, most Flash content today requires 11.2 or higher, and it simply isn't available for your OS. This is the computing world's way of telling you that OS 10.5 is becoming obsolete, if it isn't already. That's the bad news.
The good news is: While your OS may be obsolete, your Mac certainly isn't. You can upgrade to OS 10.6.8 (and unfortunately, due to the age of your Mac, that's as far as you can go - OS 10.7 or 10.8 require a 2010 or newer Mac to install) for just $20: http://store.apple.com/us/product/MC573Z/A/mac-os-x-106-snow-leopard OS 10.6.8 WILL run the latest Flash Player and will allow you to access web content for a few years to come. That's a lot cheaper than going out and getting a new Mac.
THANK YOU...This is all making sense now...I will be purchasing the latest
version of snow leopard OSX 10.6, so I can have the latest version of
flash. because I have tried to download the archived version that you
provided me in the link as well but it doesn't have any content to
download. I get to the install flash player icon but it doesn't open or do
anything.. in fact it says not responding.
