While there is a standalone Flash player, I have never gotten it to work, but that doesn't matter since you never really need it. What you need to do is install the relatively invisible plugins which won't show up as applications in the utilities folder or dock. They work inside your web browsers which is where you really need Flash. Don't confuse the player application with the installer and uninstaller applications.

I have an older Mac PowerPC running OSX 10.5.8. I never had any problems playing online games but recently it now says : "You are trying to install Adobe Flash Player on an unsupported operating system." Apparently 10.3 is the latest but it won't run on my machine because it is NOT an Intel. I currently have 10.1.82.76 installed and I'm using Firefox. How do I get the Flash Player to work again? Help!

The Flash version for PPC version 10.1.102.64 (is
now available from an archive page/link at Adobe)
does work OK for most flash items in web pages.

Mine returned to a functional mode. Also, I checked
& got the Firefox download for latest 3.6.15 browser.

{However, there still is an issue in Shockwave test
page's animation not working; and mine is the last
supported version 11.5.9.620 for PPC. Seemed to
work OK in Leopard 10.5.8; not in Tiger 10.4.11...
but both of these did last week.}

I really don't want to upgrade my iMac G4 1.25 to
Leopard 10.5.8; though I have an extra unused
retail DVD install disc still in the box.

Maybe the Shockwave player will return to functional
state the next time I restart my computer. In a month.
It's only been on 102 days this time, up 170 last time.

+Nice to know you do have a semblance of flash, btw.+

Good luck & happy computing!
