Why can't I install Flash Player that hasn't been downloaded from the App Store on my iMac? I downloaded it it from the Adobe website which should be OK. Also Flash Player does not appear to be avaolable on the Mac App Store.

iMac, OS X Mavericks (10.9), Flash Player downloaded from Adobe

Welcome to Apple Support Communities


In fact, you need to download it from the Adobe website > http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer Redownload Flash Player from that website and install it. Restart your Mac after finishing the installation.


If you get a message telling you that you cannot open the installer because it does not come from the Mac App Store, open System Preferences > Security & Privacy > General, press the padlock at the bottom left corner of the window, and choose "Anywhere" under "Allow applications downloaded from".
