I did get the old version to reinstall - thank you- but it won't work citing security issues and that I should upload a more recent version - which I tried again - and still get metafile installation failed n- so I still have no AFP

- Mount the Flash Player installer .dmg file
- Copy the "Install Adobe Flash Player" file to desktop or any other directory as preferred
- Open terminal and cd to desktop or the other directory
- Run the following command on terminal: sudo ./Install\ Adobe\ Flash\ Player.app/Contents/MacOS/Install\ Adobe\ Flash\ Player
- Insert the password when asked

GenXos - thank you - I ended up on the phone with Bob from Apple Care last night - the apparent issue was that the source that Adobe provided for download could not supply the metafiles - Bob found a direct way into Adobe - which I assume is what your command on line 4 indicates and the download was complete in less than 30 secs.
Adobe has noted this as an issue on their site but has done zilch to redirect people as you and Bob have done. A 30 sec fix had me tied up for nearly 12 hours yesterday (yes I am computer illiterate) because of Adobe's inability to comminicate a solution.
TG for Apple - always - and thank you all.

That's great to hear that you were able to find a solution.
I've been trying to fix this issue with Adobe for 5 days now and no one is coming back to me (tried the terminal cd solution and it doesn't work).
Luigi could you expand on where you were directed to find a solution? Running
sudo ./Install\ Adobe\ Flash\ Player.app/Contents/MacOS/Install\ Adobe\ Flash\ Player
has only given me a "command no found" message.

Apple Support helped me - we trouble shot for nearly an hour before Bob gave me an Adobe http address that ended in the number 3. I do not have it.
We tried it and it worked like a charm. If you have Apple Support access I would contact them. Bob took meticulous notes so there is a possibility that they've archived the matter (I think that was why Bob was taking notes) they'll be able to help in a few minutes. The site I eventually went to looked physically very different to the others I'd been trying to work with all day- it had broad time tracker arrows
Having gone throught this, I'm really sorry I can't be of much help.

try this command
sudo ./Install\ Adobe\ Flash\ Player.app/Contents/MacOS/Adobe\ Flash\ Player\ Install\ Manager
worked for me.

Hello Ulf76, Thanks
I've done that and it tells me ''command not found''. I did everything by the book followed all instructions. Installed the most recent version (of yesterday) and nothing works.
I want to scream.... like I have that kind of time to loose.

sudo ./Install\ Adobe\ Flash\ Player.app/Contents/MacOS/
and use the "tab"-key for completion. Thats the way I found it.
There should be only one script in it.

Hello Ulf76. Thx. I have done that too and the reply is the same ''command not found''. I'm waiting for Adobe to call me back. I hope that they'll talk me through fixing this. If there is a solution, I'll post it for the benefit of others.
