    Trouble installing Adobe Flash Player 11.9.900.170 on Mac OS X 10.9

      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:

      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

          DisabledRecycleCount = 5;

      }

       

       

      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.

      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
