*** Adobe Flash Player UNLOADABLE ***

Post by 2886ng » Tue Oct 10, 2006 1:11 pm

After upgrading from v10 to v11, I am unable to access web page that is embedded with Flash Player. The page will prompt me to install Flash Player, but even so after re-installing, the page still reports that flash player not installed.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Our system has detected that you don't have the required FREE Macromedia Flash 5 plug-in installed.
You need Flash 5 to view our Enhanced World Cup GameCast.

The Flash 5 plug-in can be downloaded for FREE from the Macromedia website (http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/dow ... kwaveFlash).
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

When we revert/reinstall Avant Browser v10, I have no problem.

Please advise. Thank you very much.

For security reasons, you should install the latest Flash version 9. Here is the link:

Thank you.

Forgot to mention that I am actually running Flash Player 9.

What I dont understand that when I am using Avant v10, I have no problem. The problem only occcurs when I upgrade to Avant v11.

Comparatively, I have no problem when I surf the same web site using Firefox.

Please advise.

I had this problem when I had to re-install Avant after a HD change.
I know they shouldn't be connected, but I downloaded the latest version of Shockwave, then went back to the Flash page, and it worked fine.
Ha, ha ha! Very funny!

Run for the hills, it's Darkson!

I can't get adobe Flash to run in IE6 or Avant. It isn't working in FF either. I also redownloaded Version 9. The test page works perfectly. I've had this problem with MSNNews and the Animal planet site. I get a constant "Loading" message--went away for 3 hours--still loading, not frozen.

It's so Avant Browser discouraging!!!

I have re-installed Shockwave and Flash Player. But AB just couldnt load Flash properly, and the test page keep prompting to install Flash! On AB v10, there is no such problem.

I am further discouraged when the other browser like Firefox, Netscape and Opera have absolutely NO problem to load Flash and Shockwave.

To me, the Flash problem is isolated with AB v11, even with the latest v11 build 15.

Since nobody brought it up in this thread yet, have you checked under Tools that "Disable Flash Animation" is not selected?

Yes! And as I said, I can't get it to work in any of my browsers.

Have you ever tried to completely uninstall the Flash Player first? See this link for instructions and download of the uninstaller.

Yes, I have 'consulted' that Adobe web page, and one of the times to 'make Flash works in AB v11', I have followed Adobe steps to uninstall. But it still doesnt work o v11.

To me, this is just not right. I have no problem on AB v10 and the other browsers. I am so compelling to revert to AB v10.

I've had that issue before, the uninstall fixed it for me. I don't have any issues with Flash in Avant now.

Uninstall didn't fix it for me. Still not working in any type of browser--just forever loading--except in FF where it doesn't even do that.

Is it because I'm using IE6?

Nope, the problem was AdMuncher! I still can't get MSNNEWS discussion going, but Animal Planet works!

OK, I have FINALLY resolved my problem.

However, frankly I couldnt offer constructive explanation. Well, I just uninstall AB v11. Then uninstall Shockwave and Flash. Then I install AB v10. Then I start v10 and once everything appears normal, I close it and install AB v11. Then I start v11, check all look OK, then install Shockwave and Flash from Adobe website. I have also followed on with the other browsers, eg. FF, Opera, Netscape......

Thank you all who have helped or participated in one way or another.
