    mac osx 10.7.5 prompts to update flash player - does not install.


      merry x-mas everyone - hope you can save may holidays!

      I've literally tried everything, I've found in other threads, but it still doesn't install adobe flash player.

      mac os x 10.7.5 (would like to keep this version)
      safari 6.1.6

      problem: 2 days ago I was asked to update my flash player because my version is outdated. failed to install latest version of flash player 16 (also failed with older versions). system requirements should be ok, though

      sytem requirements flash player 16:

      • Mac OS X Version 10.6, 10.7, 10.8 oder 10.9
      • Safari 5.0 and higher, Mozilla Firefox 17, Google Chrome oder Opera 11

      already tried: uninstall, deleting several suggested directories in "library" - e.g.: ...Library/Preferences/Macromedia/Flash\ Player OR ...Library/Caches/Adobe/Flash\ Player


      any ideas what else to try? do I need a system update? is it the browser?
      any help and ideas highly appreciated! best wishes, toni

          I try to install and it installs up to 29%, or 35%, or 36%. Mine has been doing this for a week. I wish some tech people from Adobe would read these and fix this! I can't watch YouTube or any other flash video. Pisses me off that we are forced into Adobe and thus forced to wait on them to act! Any other options for flash players that aren't Adobe? I assume the video would have to be in that other format? Back to square one.


          I have tried on other browsers to access videos to no avail. I have tried to download from other browsers and install to no avail. Given the myriad of other respondents regarding this same issue, I'm guessingno one else has found a suitable fix.
