I am using a Mac OS 10.6.3, having this error message when installing Adobe Air,
"an error occurred while installing adobe air. installation may not be allowed by your administrator. please contact your administrator"
I downloaded the latest version of Adobe Air from Adobe's website.
Try uninstalling and still having the same problem. Done this troubleshoot method:
1. In Language and Text, only enable English - Then Log out and Log in
2. Make sure in Library - Framework, there's no Adobe Air installation.
I have same problem. Repair please, i need used TweetDeck.
Finally, you have to do the following ( under Mac OS Snow Leopard ):
-Uninstall ALL air applications.
-Uninstall AIR, using the Uninstaller App ( located in /Applications/Utilities )
-Delete the following directory:
sudo rm -rf /Users/YOUR_USERNAME/Library/Application\ Support/Adobe/AIR/
And BINGO! after doing that, reinstall adobe air, and tweetdeck!!!
There you go, at least that worked for me, hopefully it works for you!
Wow this actually worked, i have installed it successfuly, now onto using tweetdeck!
