After several tries to download the newest flashplayer from different locations onto my Mac (OSX 10.9.5) I am quite desperate as it shows as "AdobeFlashPlayerInstaller_16_ltrosxd_aaa_aih.dmg.mdlp" (size 1.2 MB instead of the 14.9 it should) in my downloads folder. Right click with copy link, new tab etc neither worked. How do I resolve this?
I'm moving the thread to an appropriate forum.
The file you downloaded is a shim/stub installer that then downloads/installs Flash Player silently in the background. I've forwarded your issue to our web team to help identify why the .mdlp extension is being added. Do you happen to have MATLAB installed on your machine? I've seen reports of this, but usually the users have MATLAB installed and .mdlp might be a MATLAB file extension. Please try removing the .mdlp extension and see if that works. If not, you may want to try the diagonistic steps in this page, Why is Safari downloading .mdlp instead of .dmg... | Apple Support Communities.
