Have you tried moving it manually to your Applications folder? Where is it now? Just drag it and drop it in the Applications folder. When you open it, right click on the dock icon, select options, select "keep in dock".

Regards.

That's part of the problem, after it says" successfully installed " I can't find it.

It would have been helpful if you had mentioned that in your original post. Ok, take a look here: /Users/your user name/Library/

Is anything there?

Also look in: /Volumes/MacIntosh HD/Applications/

If it installed properly, it has to be in one of those two places. Actually, it should be in both places.

You stated that you installed Safari for Leopard. Which version of Safari did you install?

Regards.

Updating Safari is a reason to download it . You're right, it's there but it may not be recent.

van - it should be in your Applications folder. Have you run Safari and checked the version (Safari > About Safari)?
