I am having issues installing Adobe Flash Player on my 10.5.8 Mac. I uninstalled the previous version. My understanding understand is that i need an older version of flash player as this is an older Mac.

I've been to the archived flash player page and tried downloading several older versions. In each case, it starts to download, then after say 19% it says "Installation Failed". I've tried loads of times, and tried loads of different ways of doing it and i'm at a loss!!! Please Help!

  • Did you try the answer from here forums.adobe.com/thread/1016650 – Ruskes Nov 21 '14 at 17:32
  • Yes, it didn't really apply. It's saving, but then 5-19% into the install, it just says "install Failed". Thanks a lot! – user101784 Nov 21 '14 at 18:26

  • For which browser ? – Ruskes Nov 21 '14 at 19:12
  • And how did you remove the previous version? was it a complete removal, no left overs ? – Ruskes Nov 21 '14 at 19:19

The older version cannot be downloaded and installed because Apple bars such an operation.

Due to Malware and hacking reasons, Apple does not support the installation of this program. Nobody knows of a way around it unless it is copied over from another Mac.
