I'm not knocking your ability to assist (as in the previous post) but the fact that you've been a member since 09/2005 - you should know better by now.

@frogboss:

Thanks, next time I won't have to transplant it from XP maybe...

@Everyone:

Latest version seems to render video better on my particular machine, although it does some weird stuff too. I have Radeon 128MB GeForce and 800Mhz processor with no SSE2 acceleration. Looks like it was able to squeeze a better frame rate at small video sizes but there's not enough processor power to do large video well or hi def streams. Try scrolling away from the video while it plays and then back onto it again, sometimes it goes into fast motion mode to catch up - really weird, must be some real weird frame buffering going on, then again that could be the video driver, they tend to be very buggy.

That's my report

It would seem that the people at http://portableappz.blogspot.co.uk/2011/03/flash-1021531-10318042-plugins.html have boobed with their latest update, well I say this as when I take their latest Adobe Flash player update for version 11.3.300.257 then extract as normal, when I check the version of NPSWF32.dll it shows as 11,2,202,235.

Anyone else noticed this or has anyone managed to get the latest version to show on their system?

Honestly, I don't know what sort of benefits do you expect installing newest Flash version on retro systems like Win98/Me but if you need it so badly, you can download it from here.

Btw, I've tested it - it works (suprisingly even with old SeaMonkey 1.1.19).

Bug and security fixes as well as support for latest Flash features perhaps... :w00t:

For as long as it works I don't see a reason not to keep up to date with it.

Thanks for the link btw.

You know, it would be wonderful to have Flash GPU acceleration on Win9x but it's not possible as we know.

Btw, I've discovered some sound glitches (distortion) with latest version.

Okay but could you check the file from that link and say whether its the new driver or not?

Did you run the .paf installer for say Firefox then copy and paste the NPSWF32.dll into C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\Macromed\Flash ?

What I was saying earlier was when I checked the version of NPSWF32.dll after extracting it from the latest .paf it was the older version and not the new one, why would this be?

Thanks for that link, I was saying that the one from the PortableAppz site has the previous driver but your link gives the correct one, and my player has the correct up-to-date version now.

Many thanks.

I've gone back to the previous version of flash player 11.2.202.235 as I was experiencing sound issues on embedded youtube windows, and these sound issues have now gone. :yes:

It's possible to install version 11.3 again with the msi installer. It installs with an error, but it works for me. (Opera 11.64 / Firefox 3.5.19 // but have a problem with Opera 10.63)  :thumbup

Doesn't work for me with the installer, I get a permanent runtime error, and no sign of any files going to temp folders, anyway I went back to 11.2 due to the sound issues I mentioned earlier.

Well I am staying with the 11.2.202.235 version and all I did was to use the Flash portable file and place it in the macromedia system folder, and it reports it as being installed, and of course I don't have sound issues with youtube videos.

I found it surprising that there was a 11.2.202.236 version, I assumed the last 11.2 version was 235 ?

Can someone who has installed this very latest version using the msi confirm that playing videos embedded with youtube results in normal audio and video?

This version is an update for Linux only - here is confirmation.

I have tried it with the msi installer and received the following error which results in it not reporting as being installed.

http://storagestart2.divshare.com/launch.php?f=18381120&s=ecf&i=normal

It's Internet Explorer version and schwups has mentioned only that one for alternative browsers like Firefox/Opera.

Right, so I have the last 10 version for Internet Explorer 6 which is 10,3,183,20, I don't use I.E much only when playing pool.

I use Opera 11.64 and Firefox 3.68, and I am using flash version 11.2.202.235 for both of these browsers, and do so as I have used the NPSWF32.dll version for 11.2.202.235 and placed it in c:windows/system/macromedia/flash, and when I check the version report on adobe it reports I have version 11.2.202.235 successfully installed.

Now I am aware that this isn't the most current version as 11.3 is available, but this latest 11.3 version is having issues with sound on embedded youtube videos, I take it nobody else using windows 98 is having the same issues with sound with the 11.3 version of flash player?

I have taken your advice and am staying for the time being with 11.2. don't fix if it ain't broke comes to mind. :D

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

Kexstubs now contains the follow definition for this API:


[Advapi32.dll]
ChangeServiceConfig2W=z3e

That means: return zero, pop three parameters from the stack, and SetLastError (<invalid function>).

You can also try changing the definition to "z3e0" / SetLastError (<success>).

Yes, the msi (windows installer)  of update 262 works fine for me.   :yes:  

The player only works, if Opera runs with Win2000 mode! It doesn't, if Opera runs with default mode.

Yeah, but I think you are referring to having ME, whereas I have Win98.
