    Hello, I have an old Mac (Mac G4 MDD, OS 10.5.8), and trying to buy a concert ticket from Live Nation web site ( http://www.livenation.com/) , however my browser does not have the most current version of Flash Player, and I get an error message, "Heads up! You need the latest Adobe Flash Player to use this map. <Get Flash Player for Free>If you’re on a mobile device or don’t want to install Flash Player, let us choose seats for you."

    When I click <Get Flash Player for Free>, I get the message, "Your operating system does not support the latest version of Adobe Flash Player. Please refer to the Flash Player system requirements and the Flash Player Archive for older versions."

    When I click <Flash Player Archive>, it takes to me to this page and I get confused to what I need to do... http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/archived-flash-player-versions.html

    please help.

    You should NOT* get Flash Player 10.3.183.90 for Mac OS X 10.5.

    If it works with the website you mentioned is not a given though.


    * See posts #4 and #5 for the corrections.

    help me manage those file please...

    Thank you very much, I found it and was able to down load the version... But not sure how to manage the application...

    It mounted a white box icon named "fp_10.3.181.90_archive" on my desk top. When I clicked on it, it had a blue folder named "fp_10.3.183.90_archive" again. When I clicked on this blue folder, it showed two Blue folders. "10_3_r183_90" and "10_3_r183_90_debug".

    Inside the first folder "10_3_r183_90", it has three items: "flashplayer_10_3r183_90_mac_intel.dmg", "flashplayer_10_3r183_90_mac_sa.app.zip", and "uninstall_flashplayer10_3r183_90_mac_intel.dmg"

    Inside the second folder "10_3_r183_90_debug", it has three items:
    "flashplayer10_3r183_90_mac_intel_debug.dmg"
    "Flash Player Debugger" (with red X) marked over it. and
    "flashplayer10_3r183_90_mac_sa_debug.app.zip"

    what do I need to do with them, where to put them (in my application folder?) and how do I install the Flash Player from the above files ??

    Thanks for the correction, it was not clear to me, as they also listed an Intel Only version, thus I assumed, the version I meant, was UB, but then again, Flash is Flash, if it cannot run, it should not. ;)
