Windows Xp Error Could Not Find The Macromedia Flash

Now that I've worked around it, it's not a big issue but I'd still like to know if anyone knows what could be wrong. The error message "Could not find the Macromedia Flash" keeps popping up on my PC. Not Fair! i've uninstalled flash player and shockwave and reinstalled them both repetedly. check over here

If Adobe is going to offer for download spftware, then they should help when it is obvious that there is a real problem with their Flash UPDATE!

have you tried copying "flasha.ocx" and pasting a copy in the same folder as it's original location but renaming it to "flash.ocx?" that might solve your problem.

If people haven't had replies to their posts from Adobe, this is very poor customer support.

I even tried installing flash ... is that the replacement for this missing file that isn't communicating with the older applications like the flash screen savers that everyone's having a problem with?

The screen saver I'm using is the blank screen so there is no need for flash there.

Once this is done go to download Flash Player 9 and it will install the complete version instead of the updates which have been problematic. Make sure that you reboot your computer prior to reinstalling Flash Player.http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/141/tn_141...Then reinstall the Flash Player at the link below. If you're not already familiar with forums, watch our Welcome Guide to get started. Of course, since it's on idle, it could very well be your screensaver so try disabling that first.

Once this is done go to [url]http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFl[/url] ash and it will install the complete version instead of the updates which have been problematic. If not, go to the link I posted earlier http://www.macromedia.com/support/do...s_manager.html and see if some of the settings under Settings Manager need adjusting.

I went to C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash and copied "Flash9.ocx" and then pasted it back in the same directory. I think it is excellent too! Just changed the screensaver and it's sorted. I ran anti-spyware (Norton, a-squared & superspyware) & virus check (Norton).
