    Is anybody having this problem?
    I went to download Dreamweaver MX 04 from Macromedia (30-day Trial) installed fine but will not run at all, then I downloaded Flash MX 2004 and that will not install at all.

    I am running under 10.3.2

    I have to ask...have you rebooted? :)

    Also try fixing permissions, you never know your luck.

    I've had nothing but issues with Flash '04.

    The .01 updater from macromedia killed my keyboard shortcuts. They've stopped working. I've dumped preferences, repaired permissions and even tried reinstalling.

    Have you installed the trail app before? If so, they leave something behind that prevents you from using it again for an additional 30 days.

    Gone but not forgotten.
    You might want to check the Macromedia support area. They have many different issues.

    When I did an Archive and Install upgrade on one machine, I had to delete the Macrovision folder and go through the activation process again to get everything to run.

    flash doesn't work properly with filevault on until the update has been done to flash but by then the corruption has done its thing. Turn off filevault if you have it on and reinstall Flash making sure you dump all prefs first.
    I had probs at first but with filevault off the probs seem to have gone away touch wood.

    To expand on what bousozoku said: The Macromedia MX apps broke under Panther. There are upgrades available from the Macromedia Web site however.

    Note that this isn't a bug in Panther, and it's not really a bug in the Macromedia products either. They were coded against an earlier version of OS X and need to be updated - that's all. (I know you didn't say it was a bug; I've just seen so many "Panther is buggy because program xxxx won't work anymore" posts ...)
