A week ago, I tried downloading and installing Flash Player. But when I clicked on the downloaded Installer file, it would launch the registration wizard for an old trial version of MATLAB from Mathworks that I had on my MacBook (Retina, running Yosemite), instead of installing the Player.

Then I removed MATLAB. However, when I click on the installer now, it doesn't install, but instead just displays a view of a bunch of text that starts with..

Help! Thanks

Hi,I have the exact same problem trying to install flash player 16 today. I'm running OS X 10.8.5 and Safari 6.2.2. I've uninstalled MATLAB, but it doesn't help. The downloaded file is somehow not a .dmg but a .mdlp, whatever that is, and is a lot of nonsense in a txt file just like for lopesdan above.It named itself: AdobeFlashPlayerInstaller_16_ltrosxd_aaa_aih.dmg-2.mdlpPlease help us!

hagge, based on your note, I tried simply removing everything appended after .dmg and it seemed to run OK. So, there is at least a workaround. I guess the question is: what is appending the .mdlp extension?

I've seen this same post about a dozen times over the last couple months.  If anyone figures it out, I'd love to know.  Is there maybe a matlab browser extension or something that gets installed?
