i'm trying to install the macromedia flashplayer 8. it downloads the installer into my computer just fine. i then open the installer and everything seems to be going fine until i get a pop-up that says the following:

Error Creating Folder
1008:9,5000

i have to click okay, and i get another pop-up that says this:

Access Denied Error
You do not have enough access priviledges for this installation.

i'm at a loss as to what to do since there is only one 'user' on this computer and i've never had a problem downloading or installing anything else.

any ideas?

TIA

I had a problem like this when I tried installing FP8 from a prompt on a web site.

I went to the Macromedia site and downloaded the player and it installed fine.

You haven't said which route you're taking so I don't know if this is applicable to your situation...

Step one: throw your mac out a window. Step two: build yourself a real computer. Step three: by that time you will be smart enough to figure it out on your own and won't need my help anymore...

I am wondering if you ever posted on Apple's website? I have an iMac and I've never had any problems but I have had questions. Here is a link to Apple's forum - http://discussions.apple.com/index.jspa


It is a great site. I am just pissed because they took away the imac avatar.

It is a forum like SF but for Apple users. How could one talk about apple computers all day???
