Newest Adobe Flash and Shockwave, and Java, too!

It seems that this Silverlight update mention has been split between this thread and another

but I find it funny to note that that the digital signature shows October 23 and it is just being released now!

The Microsoft link is https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=57768. The direct download link is https://download.microsoft.com/download/D/D/F/DDF23DF4-0186-495D-AA35-C93569204409/50918.00/Silverlight.exe

I've also added it to my FTP: http://sdfox7.com/xp/sp3/EOL/Silverlight5.1.50918.exe

I'm surprised by the update since Silverlight is basically a dead technology and the last update was nearly 2 years ago. If you use Netflix in Google Chrome or Firefox on Windows XP, it will use HTML5.

It is - if you spoofed 32-bit Win 7 or later in your browser's user agent string. (Actually, spoofing a 32-bit browser on 64-bit Windows would probably work too, but I didn't try that.)

Vista and XP are offered older versions. 64-bit Win 7 is offered a 64-bit version, of course.

BTW, on Firefox or its derivatives (NM/Serpent/MyPal/Seamonkey/etc.), make sure to use/spoof version 52, since later versions don't permit any plug-ins besides Flash.

Edit: BTW, does anyone know of a good Silverlight test page (other than Amazon Prime)?

I actually downloaded it while I was still in Windows 10, using Firefox 64, so that's why I got the right version!
Interesting to know that I might well have got an earlier version if I'd done it with FF 52.9 ESR on XP.
The installer presumably contains the 32 bit and 64 bit versions, as it correctly installed the 32 bit version on XP.

Yes, @Dave-H & I both decided to post about today's Silverlight update at around the same time. He picked this thread & I picked another :whistle:

HA!

As I noted in the other thread, you must use Silverlight with Internet Explorer. I had forgotten that it doesn’t work with Chrome 49 on XP.  I was trying to test it today in Chrome and nothing was happening.

Fixed what?
:dubbio:

No one's posted the Version Information window for half-a-year; instead it's been a right-click on that general area.  Here's a post with the empty window...

...and a few posts later where it was discussed:

Oh right, I thought it had always worked for me, at least in Firefox.
I've just checked and it's all working fine in Firefox 52.9.0 ESR with Flash version 32.0.0.114, and I'm pretty sure it did on all previous versions too.
IE8 on the other hand has always had a problem in recent times displaying the version and the Flash animation itself on my system.
I just see white spaces where they should be, not even empty boxes!
Flash is working on other test pages in IE though.

@Dave-H

I've had mixed success testing Flash Player in IE with Adobe's most recent web pages. Hence I now use http://www.ultrasounds.com/ to test (notice it's HTTP not HTTPS). If you try https://www.ultrasounds.com it will probably fail for you in IE.

I like the Ultrasounds page because it works with browsers going all the way back to IE 5. (I haven't tested earlier versions). Being that it's non-SSL, it works with old browsers.

By the way, @bluebolt is referring to this, notice there is no version in the Version Information box (this is a screenshot from last month):

fpgc32x_nv.bmp

Notice this month, the Version Information box is functioning again:

Thanks, actually https://www.ultrasounds.com does work for me in IE8!
I have ProxHTTPSProxy running, but even without it, it still works if I dismiss the security warning message.
With HTTPSProxy running, I do still have to dismiss the "mixed content" warning.
