comment Flash player unable to proceed with the installation
P.S. I am still experiencing the same problem when upgrading to version 14 of Flash Player (even through System Preferences). Seems to be a problem with the installer, and not my system configuration since, to resolve this problem, I uninstall Flash Player (like before) and successfully installed Flash Player version 14 OS X which I found and downloaded from the same web site.

comment Flash player unable to proceed with the installation
Did a bit more searching on the Adobe forums and found a link to a previous version of Adobe Flash Player version 13.0.0.223. Although not the latest version, I have successfully installed it. The problem I experienced sounds almost identical to this installation problem.

comment Flash player unable to proceed with the installation
Unfortunately, uninstalling and reinstalling Flash Player according to the instructions provided by Adobe's help web site has not solved the problem. While I was able to successfully uninstall Flash Player, I now have no way to re-install it.... :(

comment Flash player unable to proceed with the installation
Hi Buscar. Thanks for your support. Unfortunately, updating Adobe Flash Player via the System Preferences makes no difference - it still opens the default browser (which is now Safari) to download the 'latest' install (i.e. dmg) file. Executing this results in the same behaviour - default browser still seems to be pointing to an older version of Adobe Flash Player....

comment Mac OS X Mavericks fails with disk corruption error
Thanks Buscar, I might try the cmd-r and restore (online) function tomorrow when I have more time. As for enabling the Debug under Disk Utility, I might give that a skip since this is a production laptop (i.e. I use it for work), and I don't want to do anything that would cause it to explode.... ;)

comment Mac OS X Mavericks fails with disk corruption error
@Buscar웃 - Yes, there is a folder called 'Incompatible Software' in the root directory. It contains three copies of Flip4Mac, which I downloaded a couple of years ago. Also, there are two hidden partitions that contain EFI and Restore. I found them using R-Studio, which I purchased last year. Was not sure how to find the hidden partitions using other (recommended) methods....

comment Mac OS X Mavericks fails with disk corruption error
George - Appreciate the feedback, however, this does not answer my question completely. I suppose my question is whether or not the installation process did resolve the corruption on the disk drive. If so, where would I find a lost+found folder (if any)?

comment MacPort - jslint fails to install due to incompatible spidermonkey installation
Thanks for that! It did the trick! Was able to upgrade spidermonkey by enforcing its variants and, by doing so, was able to successfully install jslint. Once again, thank you!!!!
