Just noticed this latest update for the Adobe Flash Player this morning, however unlike the previous files this particular one will not install even with Kernel Ex.

I have been able up till now to install successfully all the 11 program versions but not this one unfortunately.

Error starting program, a device attached to the system is not functioning.

The INSTALL_FLASH_PLAYER_32BIT.EXE file is linked to missing export ADVAPI32.DLL:ChangeServiceConfig2W.

I use Kernel-Ex 4.5.120

Will there be a way round this perhaps?

Would I be experiencing this issue due to browser used? I say this as I can't use Firefox 4 or above due to it's slowness.

if theres any spare xp machine, you might want to install it there, and examine with dependency walker if the calls needed by actual plugin.
if the call only happened to the installer, you might want to copy the extracted files to appropriate folder on win9x system and use the regsvr32 manually.

I don't have an XP machine unfortunately, and even if I did I wouldn't know too much about the dependency walker and such.

Have you managed to install this latest flash player on your 98 computer?

v11.2 brings with it a silent update feature. The installer creates a scheduled task and adds a FlashPlayerUpdateService.exe (It's a service). Maybe that has something to do with it?

Yes I think it probably has something to do with it.

I wonder if this can be helped with a change to be added to Kernel-Ex?

So at present anyone with win 98 won't be able to update to this latest version.

Google for a portable version if you're not afraid it might contain malware and copy the NPSWF32.dll over the one that's already installed (in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\Macromed\Flash\ on my machine)

I have just done that and it seems to be running OK in Opera 11.62. (2K compat mode required for NPSWF32.dll)

:hello:

Yes I have that same file in my system folder too.

When you say the one that's already installed you mean grab that file from the google download and replace it in that system folder where NPSWF32.dll is?

You say google for a portable version, are you able to give me where you managed to get one from?

Unpack with 7z and replace the one that's installed with this new one and that's all there is to do.

the new flash installer indeed creates a new services named: "AdobeFlashPlayerUpdateSvc" which probably phoning home everytime i activates the computer / connect to internet,
the services were made to run automatically, regarless the choice i made during installation on XP machine.
So, i delete it immediately with Autoruns.

currently, i can only update the activeX version as i unable download the firefox version for unknown reasons (the sites offer me the outdated flash10 instead).

the .ocx use quite different file name this time, instead of flash11#.ocx or flash12#.ocx this time the .ocx named: Flash32_11_2_202_228.ocx
so i need to add that to KeX compatibilty list.

Dependency walker said the new ocx use the same imports as previous flash11 ocx (no new call introduced),
therefore copying the files to win98se then using regsvr32.exe against that ocx works for me.

Still no too clear, when you say replace the one, are you referring to the NPSWF32.dll ?

Or am I to click on the exe file to install over the older flash installation?

Right I see what you want now, when I installed that I see 2 files NPSWF32.dll and nppdf32.dll, is it just the first one that I need to replace?

Will I then need to try and install the latest flash player again or will this replacement of that file have done this already?

Google for a portable flash player next time there is an update and you should find one as easily as I found this one, I didn't do it myself.

I found the file you sent, I think I would need to as in this case enter the version of the flash player like this when searching, and by doing so I found the same link.

Would I be able to do the same for the version 10 for the internet explorer version of the flash player? and if so where would I be looking to find the file to replace? as surely it will be in a different folder than the one I did for Firefox yesterday.

Perhaps this can only be done for the same program version, like 11 or 10.

there are two files for internet exporer flash10h.ocx and flashutil10h_activex.exe. I installed this version and it worked.

I have the latest flash player 11.2.202.228 showing as being installed thanks to loblo with the portable flash player file.

Just a little question though, I went on to this site today, http://www.skysports.com/score_centre and it said that * *Flash Player 8 or higher required (Free download) * **Flash Player 9 or higher required (Free download) Download the latest flash plugin for free!

Just confused why it doesn't pick up the Flash player 11.2.202.228 ?

Anyone that had used the method the same as I did if they could say whether they get the same as I do when I visit that site.

There will be a reason of course, it's just that I can't come up with one, and I'm looking for help.

Thanks.

Short answer: Ignore the message and click on the sub-site you want. Most of the sub-sites are flash-based--they'll find the plug-in and load just fine.Long answer:
I reproduced the symptoms in FireFox 2.0.0.20 and Opera 10.63 with Flash 9.0.47.0. The scripting Error Console in both browsers report "'$.getScripts' is not a function".

The webpage at "skysports.com/score_centre" by default displays the Flash error message and then relies on a script to detect the Flash plug-in and hide the message. The script fails, so the message stays.

Searching with Google for "+getScripts -getscript" yielded only two results, so it doesn't seems to be a browser standards-compatibility issue, just a typo/programming error at skysports.com.

I can confirm that it can be installed and work correctly by installing the portable version for your particular browser, in my case Firefox.
