Please try uninstalling Adobe flash player using this utility.
After that, download the latest version of flash player and install. Make sure you close all the application while installing.
Thanks but this is the uninstaller I used after the installer failed the first time, thank you.
Thank all that replied to my post. I was able to successfully install Flash Player following this procedure:
1. Mac HD/Library/Internet Plugins
Verify that the Flash Player.plugin file is not present. If it is, trash it.
2. Mac HD/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Flash Player
Verify that the Flash Player Install Manager folder does not exist. If it does, trash the whole folder
3. Download the offline installer here: http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/licensing/mac /install_flash_player_11_osx.dmg
4. Restarted in Safe Mode (shift key)
5. Mounted install_flash_player_11
right click on installer -> show package contents
Contents -> Resources -> Adobe Flash Player.pkg (installed correctly)
Glad that worked, Dave.
I try to avoid having people install ANYTHING in safe mode (Mac or Windows), because usually when you have to go that step, it's a sure sign that your OS is unstable, and it can cause worse problems than just an app not installing.
I've read quite a few "horror stories" in the Apple Forums re: "Mavericks destroyed my Mac". I've been really fortunate, I guess, because other than about a ten second lag when searching folders in finder via third party apps, it's been a really smooth transition.
