rloew Posted October 16, 2011 Share Posted October 16, 2011 (edited) 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.E6Downversioning of Flash is controlled by the following Registry Key:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Macromedia\FlashPlayer\SafeVersionsReduce 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 "126.96.36.199"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:01060000From this data Flash Version 9 must be no earlier than 262 (106H) or it will not install.
