Is there any way to install Adobe Flash player version 10 to Windows 98 Firefox 2.0.0.20

I ask as this is what is needed to enable street view in Google.

I have tried the Firefox useragent but it didn't work.

Flash Player 10.0.45.2 works with KernelEx 4.5 Beta on FF 2.0.0.20 see this thread http://www.msfn.org/...elex-45-beta-2/

It functions better than Flash 9 does without KernelEx.

I tried KernelEx beta, but I had to remove it as it was stopping my ZoneAlarm from running in the system tray.

I am back with FF 2.0.0.20, but for some reason I am unable to get my ABP Ad Block Plus back, any ideas?

When I try and install adblockplus I receive the following error, Signing could not be verified 260.

What do I need to do?

I need to install this to FF 2.0.0.20 as I can't get Kernelex to work as it stops my firewall from loading.

According to Add-ons for Firefox page, Adblock Plus 1.2 works with FF 3.0.12 - 3.7a6pre only but Ad blocker 0.6.7 works with FF 1.5 - 3.6

I tried KernelEx beta, but I had to remove it as it was stopping my ZoneAlarm from running in the system tray.


Did you try the Compatibility setting in KernelEX set to 98SE for Zone Alarm? You should have posted your problem in the KernelEx thread, I am sure someone would have given you the remedy.

I was not sure how to do this, the only think I did do was change the number for the operating system to either XP or Vista. I was unsure if I needed to do anything else.

By the way I managed to get adblockplus 0.7.5 installed and working.

thanks for that, although I already found this to be the case and have already installed it.

Funny thing is I was able to manually install it over the older 0.7.5 version, but when I tried the normal FF method of updating it said there were no updates, wonder why that is.

Where did you download Flash Player 10.0.45.2 for FF 2.0.0.20?
Any special instructions about installing it?

There's no special version for Firefox 2.0.0.20 or any other version of Firefox.
You've one for alternative browsers and second (AcitveX) for IE.

I think, it's best to check KernelEx thread.

I downloaded and installed what I think is the latest Flash version 9, which is 9.0.277.0. After installing it, I searched the registry for "9.0.277.0" and found it in two places:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Adobe Flash Player Plugin
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\MozillaPlugins\@adobe.com/FlashPlayer

Listed under the key-names "DisplayVersion" and "Version".

I changed those two key values from 9.0.277.0 to 10.0.45.2 (the most current version 10).

After restarting my win-98 machine and visiting Adobe's version-checker web page and Google Street view, both still claimed that I had flash version 9. So that didn't work. In fact, upon the re-start, I got the adobe update screen telling me that a new version of flash was available (version 10.something). I didn't take adobe up on it's offer initially, but I did later and what-ever it downloaded, it didn't like my OS.

I then loaded NPSWF32.dll into a hex editor and searched for "9.0.277.0". It exists in many places, but it must be changed in two specific places. Once I changed it to 10.0.45.2 and re-opened firefox 2.0.0.20, Adobe said I was running 10.0.45.2, and google Street-view operated completely normally. I checked other websites (you-tube for one) and verified that flash content was rendered correctly (all video's played just fine).

I don't know if I'm allowed to offer this modded version of NPSWF32.dll here, or post a download link to it, so I'll wait for a green light from someone here in authority before I do.

Redistributing files by Adobe isn't allowed, be they modded or not (Rule #1b).
But you can create a patch pattern and redistribute the patch pattern, like I've done in this analogous case...
All you need is patch.exe, from KanastaCorp, for which is there is a link in the post I've just pointed to.
Patch.exe can be used both to apply a patch pattern and to create it.

Ok, fine. This is always confusing, because it seems that various microsoft files are made available and linked to from these msfn forums and not necessarily with links pointing back to microsoft. I guess I'll never understand exactly what is allowed and what isin't in this regard.

Patch patterns are always allowed, since they cannot be construed, in any way, to be part of the proprietary files they're used to patch.

I changed those two key values from 9.0.277.0 to 10.0.45.2 (the most current version 10)


The most current version of Flash is 10.1.53.64, can you try it with that version?

I haven't tried that version, but I wondered now that I am reported as having 10.0.45.2 after amending the driver is it then possible to try and update 10.0.45.2 to the most recent version of flash being 10.1.53.64, or would that just mess things up and perhaps I should just be happy that I have flash 10.

I believe it won't work, because "10.1.53.64" has 10 charachters, while both "9.0.277.0" and "10.0.45.2" have 9. This means one can substitute "10.0.45.2" for "9.0.277.0" without occupying any space not intended for that string (i.e.: it's an isometric patch), but cannot do the same with "10.1.53.64", because the latter is one byte too long. I found out, not so long ago, that such a non-isometric patch breaks Flash 7, so I'm quite confident it'd similarly break Flash 10. And, even if I didn't know about the patching of Adobe 7, generally speaking, non-isometric patches are expected to break programs, and usually really do so.

Thanks for that info, I am quite happy that my browser reports flash version "10.0.45.2" as being installed, when of course we know it really isn't, as I actually have "9.0.277.0" installed, have I got this part right in that now that the driver has been amended so that my system is fooled to think that version 10 is installed, is it the browser that is being fooled or is it my system?

I would think the latter being that the amended driver sits in the windows system, have I got this right?

You could always try 10.0.54.1. It has the right number of characters and should pass the Version test as it is an even newer Version (Future).

When I restarted the computer an Adobe message appeared asking me to update to a newer version of Flash player, when I hit to accept it looked like it was going to install, but then a windows message said that it wanted an upgraded version of windows, so does this mean if I install KernelEx then all new versions of the flash player will install?

And to answer your question why I use Firefox 2 is because when I had KernelEx installed my Zone Alarm Firewall failed to launch in the system tray.

Is there a way around this, like a configuration for KernelEx, I ask as I don't know too much about what to configure for that program.

Can I just point out that although I have Flash player 9 installed I have it reported as 10 by using the new modded driver.

I was told I could configure KernelEx so that windows thinks I have Windows 98 S.E for the Firewall problem that I just mentioned, but I don't know how to do this, can anyone help and advise me please?

I was confused why I would need to do this being that I already have Windows 98, but am I right in thinking that you can configure KernelEx for different programs on the system?

In other words have KernelEx to fool the system into thinking I have XP, but also to make it think I still have 98 for the firewall?

To disable KernelEx for one specific program you need to right click program shortcut or .exe file itself and choose properties. Then in compatibility tab you can either force Windows 98 compatibility mode or disable KernelEx extensions completely for that program.

That way rest of your system will be fooled into thinking it's running XP, and program that has issues with it will be isolated.

Well done!
I have downloaded latest Flash version for Win98SE 9.0.277.0, and I have opened with an hex editor all files into the folder C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\MACROMED\FLASH and I have replaced the 9.0.277.0 string with 10.0.45.2.
Then I have searched into all the registry all entries with 9.0.277.0 and I have replaced them with the other string.
Now Google Street View works perfectly on my pc that don't has KernelEx installed.

For hex editor I use HxD ( http://mh-nexus.de/en/programs.php ), with this editor it's very easy to replace these strings.

Thank you,
aru
