    Installation blocked

    Ramón Esparza

      Have been trying to install last version of Flash on my Mac. When launching the installation app, a window opens with a message: ·trying to recover installation".... and that's all!

      Checking the Console, have got the following messages:

      01/09/14 11:34:18,000 kernel[0]: hfs: mounted Adobe Flash Player Installer on device disk4s2

      Can anyone tell me how to fix this?

      many thanks

          Hello Ramon,

           

          Avast may be interfering with the installation process.  The following line in your console output is not from the Flash Player standard output:


          01/09/14 11:34:18,011 com.apple.launchd[1]: (com.avast.update) Throttling respawn: Will start in 1613 seconds


          Try disabling Avast and see if installation continues.
