  1. here: https://rapidshare.com/#!download|874p2|3790317690|Plugin_Portable_Flash_11.2.202.228.paf.exe|3546|R~2F7CAA2B9666023960F3C3BA8208910B|0|0 ;)

    Unpack with 7z and replace the one that's installed with this new one and that's all there is to do.

    loblo,

    When this player gets updated again will you be able to send another one of those fixes? :)

    Google for a portable flash player next time there is an update and you should find one as easily as I found this one, I didn't do it myself.

    I found the file you sent, I think I would need to as in this case enter the version of the flash player like this when searching, and by doing so I found the same link.

    firefox portable flash plugin 11.2.202.228


  2. Google for a portable version if you're not afraid it might contain malware and copy the NPSWF32.dll over the one that's already installed (in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\Macromed\Flash\ on my machine)

    I have just done that and it seems to be running OK in Opera 11.62. (2K compat mode required for NPSWF32.dll)

    :hello:

    Yes I have that same file in my system folder too.

    When you say the one that's already installed you mean grab that file from the google download and replace it in that system folder where NPSWF32.dll is?

    You say google for a portable version, are you able to give me where you managed to get one from?


  3. v11.2 brings with it a silent update feature. The installer creates a scheduled task and adds a FlashPlayerUpdateService.exe (It's a service). Maybe that has something to do with it?

    Yes I think it probably has something to do with it.

    I wonder if this can be helped with a change to be added to Kernel-Ex?

    So at present anyone with win 98 won't be able to update to this latest version.


  4. if theres any spare xp machine, you might want to install it there, and examine with dependency walker if the calls needed by actual plugin.

    if the call only happened to the installer, you might want to copy the extracted files to appropriate folder on win9x system and use the regsvr32 manually.

    I don't have an XP machine unfortunately, and even if I did I wouldn't know too much about the dependency walker and such.

    Have you managed to install this latest flash player on your 98 computer?


  5. Just noticed this latest update for the Adobe Flash Player this morning, however unlike the previous files this particular one will not install even with Kernel Ex.

    I have been able up till now to install successfully all the 11 program versions but not this one unfortunately.

    Error starting program, a device attached to the system is not functioning.

    The INSTALL_FLASH_PLAYER_32BIT.EXE file is linked to missing export ADVAPI32.DLL:ChangeServiceConfig2W.

    I use Kernel-Ex 4.5.120

    Will there be a way round this perhaps?

  6. as we know Javascript doesn't work on FF3.6

    Of course javascript works in FF 3.6 as well as in any other version of FF, it's the java plugin which has nothing to see with javascript who doesn't work on versions from 3.6 upwards.

    And FWIW I've just tried uploading two 15MB files on Megaupload with FF 8.0 and had no problems doing it.

    So what do you think has changed on the megaupload site?


  7. Now that megaupload have changed their site the browse files function isn't working on Firefox 3.6.24.

    Would it be that they are using Javascript and not flash any longer, and as we know Javascript doesn't work on FF3.6


  8. Problems with Firefox 7.01 Read this: http://www.ghacks.net/2011/10/07/sync-broken-in-firefox-7-0-1-release/

    Good reason to stay with Firefox 3.6.23. Which will be upgraded to 3.6.24 begin november.

    Thanks for this information, I use bookmarks alot, so keeping Firefox 3.6.23 is my option, and will take the upgrade to 3.6.24 next month.

    So according to https://wiki.mozilla.org/Releases/Firefox_3.6_MU it seems that they may be intending to keep the 3.6 platform for the time being.


  9. Frogman, I've made some tests and looks like that Flash 10.0.45.2 is latest version which work with IE 6.0 (Win98/ME of course).

    I managed to get the flash to work again on I.E6, and I think I managed it by installing Flash 9 first, then when I tried to install 10 I really can't remember what happened at that point, but all I know is when I re-booted and checked the version test it says I have version 10,3,183,10 installed. It works and it shows I have version 11 for Firefox.


  10. I wish I had known about that prior to un-installing the active x version for I.E, and the annoying thing is it won't let me install it back again, message saying that it's not the most recent and therefore it refuses to install.

    If you know a way round this so I could get the older version installed again I would appreciate that, I have kept the last version 10 exe file that did work on I.E6

    Downversioning of Flash is controlled by the following Registry Key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Macromedia\FlashPlayer\SafeVersions

    Reduce the limit for the Major Version you are installing, then try again.

    When you say reduce the limit do you mean changing where it says VERSION?

    Let me say that I have already installed successfully the latest version 11 of flash for Firefox 3.6.23, and what I see at the moment in the registry is as follows....

    I get to the Macromedia folder, then the first folder in the reg is called FlashPlayer, when I click on this I see on the right pane 2 entries, one says Name Default, Data value not set, and also NAME.. Auto Update Test and DATA..."AutoUpdate"

    Then on the folder below, it's called FlashPlayerPlugin, then there are 4 in the right pane, first is Name Default, Data value not set, second is player path, Un-installer path, and Version "11.0.1.152"

    Then the folder on the left is shockwave 10, I think that was for the shockwave director, although I thought I had installed version 11 for that, well that is what shows on the add/remove programs list anyway.

    So at the end of the day there are 3 folders that branch of from the macromedia folder on my registry.

    Apparently the Plug-In uses different Registry Keys. The Key I posted is used by the IE6 Version of Flash 9.

    But I used Flash 10 previously.

    I don't use KernelEx, so I never installed Flash 10. I have never installed the non-IE Version of Flash. This may be why I see the SafeVersions Key.

    The key and it's contents are as follows:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Macromedia\FlashPlayer\SafeVersions]

    "6.0"=dword:00000058

    "7.0"=dword:00000049

    "8.0"=dword:0000002a

    "9.0"=dword:01060000

    From this data Flash Version 9 must be no earlier than 262 (106H) or it will not install.

    My reg folder for the I.E version says Auto-UpdateTest, "AutoUpdate" do you think I should remove that?

  13. However I could not manage to install the version for I.E6, perhaps it's not compatible for that older browser?

    I would like to know for what you need latest Flash in that terrible, over ten years old browser?

    Adobe has dropped the support for Internet Explorer 6 SP1.  Version 10.3.183.10 is the last for IE 6 SP1. New requirement: IE 7 

    System requirements for Adobe Flash Player 11

    I don't really use I.E, just annoying that I removed a prog that worked on it but can't install it back again.
