Download the portable version and after installing it, copy the NPSWF32.dll over the one in WINDOWS\SYSTEM\Macromed\Flash or in the plugins folder of your browsers.

I have Flash version 11.3.300.268 working on this computer. I obtained NPSWF32.dll version 11.6.602.168 and simply replaced the older file with the newer one where it sits in the \SYSTEM\MACROMED\FLASH directory.

This file-substitution did not work. I got some sort of error message in FF2 when trying to bring up the Adobe flash-version/test page.

I thought that replacing the DLL file was all that was needed. No?

That's what I do and it works fine here, perhaps hardware requirements are different between your two versions and you're below them with the latest one, thinking about SSE2 CPU here.

In the past, Yes. Make sure the new file is named just "NPSWF32.dll" without the version in the name.

What was the text of the error message?

So if I substitute either of these versions: 11,5,502,149 or 11,6,602,168 of the DLL in place of what I had, and if I try to bring up a web page with flash content using either FF2 or Netscape 9, I get this error message (pops up in it's own window):

---------------
Title Bar: Illegal Operation in Plug-in
The plug-in performed an illegal operation. You are strongly advised to restart Firefox.
( ) Don't show this message again during this session
[OK]
---------------

On Opera 12.02, flash appears to work - but instead of automatically rendering flash content on any given web-page, I get a big > symbol that I have to press to render the content. If I hover over the > I get this text on the bottom line of Opera: "Please click to download and activate plugin".

For example, when I view this page: http://www.investing...-advanced-chart

Where the chart should be, I get a big > symbol that I have to click. Funny thing - I thought those graphs were done in java - but I guess they use flash. With the previous version of flash, the graphs just appear right away.

On this page: http://helpx.adobe.c...ash-player.html

In section (1), when I press the > symbol, nothing happens (I don't see the ball rolling back and forth). In Section (2), when I press the > symbol, it tells me the flash version (11.6.602.168) and my OS (Windows 2000 32-bit) and the browser (Opera).

Do I have to do something else in these browsers to properly register or install these new(er) versions of flash? There seems to be more needed than just replacing the DLL file.

Oh, this PC has a socket-478 Intel P4, 2.5 ghz.

Hallo Nomen,

different Flash versions (for example 11.3 and 11.6) in the System\Flash folder and the plugin folder of the browser don't work. 

If the Opera browser runs with comp. mode KernelEX enabled (default mode), make sure that the name of the Flash dll is "NPSWF32.dll".

If the Opera 12.02 or 11.64 browser runs with comp. mode Win2000SP4, make sure that the name is NPSWF32_11_6_602_168.dll (rename it).

All browsers look in its plugin folder first. If there is the corresponding name to the KernelEX mode it should work.

You also can paste the dll in the plugin folder only. There is no need to have one in the system\flash folder.


Firefox:

With spepecific comp mode "default mode" the name has to be "NPSWF32.dll".

On my computer, the only place where I have the file(s) NPSWF*.dll is:

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\MACROMED\FLASH\NPSWF32.dll
C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\plugins\NPSWF32.dll


There are no such files anywhere else.

Opera says (under plugins) Shockwave Flash 11.6.602.168, located at C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\MACROMED\FLASH\NPSWF32.dll

I realize that NPSWF32.DLL is also available (or also exists) as NPSWF32_11_6_602_168.DLL (why that is - I don't know). If I add NPSWF32_11_6_602_168.DLL to both of the above locations where NPSWF32.DLL already exists, nothing changes. Opera still places a > (play) symbol where flash content exists on web pages, forcing me to press the > symbol to "play" (render) the content. And nothing changes for FF2 - I still get that error message when I bring up the same web-pages with flash content.

I seem to recall that I tried this same thing (replacing the flash DLL file) the last time I upgraded the flash version - and it didn't work, and I ended up running the installer, and that's how I got the current version (11.3.300.265) to work.

Also - I don't know if you're supposed to see "Flash" show up on the FF2 add-on screen (Tools -> Add-ons) but I don't see Flash showing up there (I don't recall if I ever did). But a copy of the DLL does exist in the Mozilla Firefox\plugins\ directory. So if FF uses the flash plugin from that directory, then why would FF be messed up if I change the flash DLL file in the SYSTEM\MACROMED directory?

Edit:

So I removed NPSWF32_11_6_602_168.DLL from:

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\MACROMED\FLASH\NPSWF32.dll
C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\plugins\NPSWF32.dll


And I restored NPSWF32.DLL version 11.3.300.265 to both those locations, and FF2 and Netscape 9 are happy and Flash works for them.

I then added the file NPSWF32_11_6_602_168.DLL to C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\MACROMED\FLASH\NPSWF32.dll and FF2/Netscape 9 stop rendering flash content. They don't give any errors - they just don't render flash.

Can anyone explain that?

Don't paste the same Flash file with different names in the same folder and don't use different versions at the same time!

Note that this renaming and re-registering of Flash files by Adobe affects both versions, the DLL used by Mozilla/Opera, and the OCX for MSIE.

I usually search for ... npswf*.* and *flash*.ocx*

Examples ...
Flash.ocx
SwFlash.ocx
Flash32_11_4_402_287.ocx
Npswf32.dll
Npswf32_11_2_202_233.dll

The problem is also in the registry where it is possible for different names to be in different keys.

FYI ... The last time I did an audit I found Flash entries in the following keys, which may not be all inclusive because I may not have searched the Expand_SZ values ...

Spoiler


Also note that I found ACL's were altered on the following keys by the flash installer ...

How does Mozilla FF/Netscape know to look for both types of files?

How do they know to look for NPSWF32.DLL *AND* NPSWF32_version_number.DLL ???

Why would they look for both types (both names) for the flash DLL file? What tells them to do that?

Why does the flash DLL exist with both types of names? What purpose does that serve?

They call registry keys which contain the file locations ( see list above ). Consider them pointers to files on disk.

These keys get created or refreshed when the DLL or OCX is self-registered ( when flash is installed or updated ) and then it loads a set of registry keys using that particular filename and location. Registering a DLL or OCX can also often be done just by doubleclicking it, and that location right there is what will get stored in the registry keys ( until the next time one gets self-registered ).

One problem is that you can easily wind up with different filenames ( old and new ) in different keys. There are other version mismatch problem possibilities also.

IMHO, the best thing to do is a thorough Flash audit of each type, both on disk and in the registry. Do the file search mentioned above npswf*.* and *flash*.ocx* ( including hidden etc ) and also search the registry. The registry is a little tricker, because in the live REGEDIT it will require multiple passes to catch all the filenames ( two minimum: flash and npswf. Same thing for a REG export ( unless you know how to do complex regular expression text searches ). Be prepared for a lot of false positives.

How can the registry keys exist for a brand new file that I drop into C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\MACROMED\FLASH\ ???

I didn't "install" the new version of flash. All I did was drop NPSWF32_11_6_602_168.DLL into the macromed\flash directory. So how can Mozilla FF/Netscape know that it exists? It can't be present anywhere in the registry, because I didn't install that version (didn't run the flash installer) and I didn't register it manually using regsvr32.

And (I ask again) why do these flash DLL's exist as both NPSWF32.DLL *AND* NPSWF32_version_number.DLL ??? Why does Adobe create / distribute them using dual-names like that? Who else (what other company) has ever distributed / installed new versions of DLL files by including the version_number in the name of the file?

You keep talking about the ocx files - I don't care about the ocx files because I don't care about IE6 or how flash works (or doesn't) with IE6.

The registry has an entry to the folder. Files are searched for in the directory.

Some programs load dependancies based on a file name pattern, such as "NPSWF32*.DLL", then load the highest-ordered search result. Chances are rather high that the original NPSWF32.DLL is being overridden by the .dll with the most recent patch date and version. (That said, they could also use it for base shared functions, but it isn't likely.)

This is all part of a program distribution model aimed at rapid, common patching. It's certainly wasteful, taking more disk space and bandwidth than simply patching files. That said, replacement is faster and more foolproof; they don't need to concider things like permissions, read-only access, running programs, or unloading resources. It just works the next time the program is loaded. Plus, if they do need a regression you probably already have the file.

Some programs load dependancies based on a file name pattern, such as "NPSWF32*.DLL", then load the highest-ordered search result.

From here: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Flash

They describe this change when the file-name for the flash plugin began to include the version number. This started with flash version 11.2 (March 2012).

How it is that Firefox 2.0.0.20 (released Dec 2008) has some "awareness" that when it loads the flash player, that it must search the specified directory according to a pre-set pattern, interrogate each file that matches the pattern, and load the newest version of NPSWF32_version_number.DLL ?

Or is there some other "middle-ware" piece of software between FF and NPSWF32*.DLL that is doing the searching / loading?

How can the registry keys exist for a brand new file that I drop into C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\MACROMED\FLASH\ ???

In that case they obviously won't first t exist. But there is more than one way to skin a cat!

Lots of programs are hardcoded to look in specific folder structures, others are softcoded to look in the current directory and below ( Opera in at least some versions ), or they can do both in either order of precedence. Once a browser locates a file in this manner ( without registry keys ) it might then call some of its functions directly with no fuss, it might load the whole DLL into memory, or, it might first call the self-register procedure which sets up those aforementioned registry keys ( using that particular filename and location ). BTW, the registry keys being are most often used as a quick source of file pointers by applications created with standard tools like Visual Studio that are aware of the COM model with Registry keys, etc. It is standard procedure for big, traditional, non-portable applications.

Also be aware that there are further possibilities as well. Some applications don't even require a valid filename at all and will load all DLLs it finds in its path even if the file is called abc.old or just abc. This doesn't yet pertain to Flash in browsers but it is part and parcel of debugging Windows errors. especially on big programs like CorelDraw which might have literally thousands of libraries in its path, so you can imagine how easy a conflict can arise. So there are many possible combinations of problems. For example, IrfanView will load up every plugin underneath it regardless of name.

This is why I mentioned doing an audit of both the registry and disk so that the user can get all their ducks in a row, because:. The registry might be correct, pointing to the latest flash somewhere on disk while a different version is tucked away in a folder that the program manually searches, and a version conflict might arise. And I wouldn't be surprised if all browsers work slightly differently in their order of precedence.


I didn't "install" the new version of flash. All I did was drop NPSWF32_11_6_602_168.DLL into the macromed\flash directory. So how can Mozilla FF/Netscape know that it exists? It can't be present anywhere in the registry, because I didn't install that version (didn't run the flash installer) and I didn't register it manually using regsvr32.

As above, it loaded the file from either the browser directory structure or it searched hardcoded traditional well-known paths.


And (I ask again) why do these flash DLL's exist as both NPSWF32.DLL *AND* NPSWF32_version_number.DLL ??? Why does Adobe create / distribute them using dual-names like that? Who else (what other company) has ever distributed / installed new versions of DLL files by including the version_number in the name of the file?

As Zoinkity mentioned, it is simply their latest distribution scheme probably meant to make things easier in their eyes. Complain to Adobe, they're good listeners, NOT :lol: What I do myself, is an audit of the registry and disk, then I prefer to normailze the names to the original format without versions numbers. It probably does not matter, but there is also the possibility of a program not only searching a hardcoded path, but also the traditional filename. Such a hypothetical program would find no Flash DLL file on disk using the newer compound filename+version format ( well, unless it also used the registry ).

So to summarize the entire problem ... there are lots of combinations of Flash versions, filenaming, location, and browser methodology. If you want to have zero conflicts ( or security holes from not using the latest greatest most secure release ), do an audit of everything, step back and understand all the possibilities that may arise and fix it accordingly.


You keep talking about the ocx files - I don't care about the ocx files because I don't care about IE6 or how flash works (or doesn't) with IE6.

Okay! But this isn't email and you're not the only one here, and other visitors will visit this thread years into the future! :lol: I just wanted to point out that they are doing the exact same thing with both types of Flash, DLL and OCX. They name them similarly, and they self-register in the same way.

Also note, I am NOT saying that the OCX and DLL must be matched, there is no technical reason for that and someone might actually want different Flash levels in MSIE than in Mozilla/Opera maybe for dev purposes or some other experiment.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\MozillaPlugins\@adobe.com/FlashPlayer]
"Path"="C:\\WINDOWS\\SYSTEM\\Macromed\\Flash\\NPSWF32.dll"


There is also an equivalent HKCU MozillaPlugins key were Flash path could eventually be.

Finally there are the browsers's own plugins directories.

That should sum it all up.

As for the OP's "problem" in Opera, it's most likely just the plugin on-demand setting that is enabled I would guess.

Still doesn't explain how FF 2 was coded back in 2008 to know that when loading the flash plugin, that it should search for all NPSWF32_version_number.DLL files and choose the most current version - when Adobe wouldn't even start creating/distributing NPSWF32_version_number.DLL files until 4 years later in 2012.

I guess whoever was coding FF2 was just so clever to anticipate that method of flash file naming 4 years in advance, and build it into FF2 eh?

If that is exactly what happened ( FF2 picking the best version regardless of filename ) it wasn't from Nostradamus. It probably does something like this when executed ...

FF2 fires up, enumerates all files in its plugin search path, requests standard file information for each, throws away every file except those with npswf32.dll in the "Original File Name" field, weighs the remaining versions and then keeps the best one. That pretty much describes a thinner algorithm for a portable application. Of course they may enhance that decision-making by using the registry and by expanding the search path to other folders perhaps under other browsers, it's up to them ( actually I believe this is the case because I think I've seen Opera or Firefox find Flash under each others' folder structure in the past ).

Rest assured there is an algorithm, perhaps very complex, for plugin handling. You could have a look at the source code if you are so inclined or try to nail it down using FileMon and RegMon in tandem ( that's on Win9x naturally ). On WinXP using ProcMon will definitely expose all the search locations, but naturally it turns up a LOT more extraneous events than Win9x!

Info on installing Flash 11.6 is here.

BTW, if you previously installed Flash 11.3.*, then perhaps you need to rename npswf32_11.6.*.dll to npswf32_11.3.*.dll.

Over the past few days, I've been setting up a new install of win-98se on a clean drive on a 3 ghz P4 Soyo i845 motherboard. (And I've installed 98 SE SP 3.18 just prior to installing KernelEx).

Something I noticed is that I wasn't able to install any version-11 version of flash, at least not as the first version the system had ever seen. I eventually got some version of Flash-10 working, and then was able to get the most recent Flash-11 working. So for someone working with a new install of win-98, you might have to install flash-10 first before trying flash-11.

Oh - yea, I might as well mention that even though Firefox 8 does install and run, I don't see the point of using it when the bookmarks and recent-history don't function.

I got a problem with the new FP 11_6_602_180. That's my scenario:

It was working fine with KernelEx v4.5.2 + FF 3.6.28 + FP 11_6_602_171. On 17 Mar 2013, the system refused to start due to the notification of FP 11_6_602_180.
Then I installed the FP 11_6_602_180 msi and renamed NPSWF32_11_6_602_180.dll to NPSWF32.dll. FP 11_6_602_180 failed to function.
Then I tried ways to uninstall, including the standalone FP uninstaller. The uninstaller failed with R6025 pure virtual function call.
Luckily, I was able to uninstall by right clicking uninstall on the msi, and then able to install FP 11_1r102_63.
Now, FP 11_1r102_63 is the newest version that I'm able to set up.

I was trying to re-install FP 11_6_602_171 or FP 11_6_602_168 but failed. I remembered that I was able to install FP 11_6_602_171 even with the error message:
A required .DLL file, WINHTTP.DLL, was not found.

All suggestion and advice are appreciated.

Luckily, I was able to uninstall by right clicking uninstall on the msi, and then able to install FP 11_1r102_63.  
Now, FP 11_1r102_63 is the newest version that I'm able to set up.  

I was trying to re-install FP 11_6_602_171 or FP 11_6_602_168 but failed.  I remembered that I was able to install FP 11_6_602_171 even with the error message:
A required .DLL file, WINHTTP.DLL, was not found.

All suggestion and advice are appreciated.

The latest Flash Player works with FF 3.6.28 for me.

Try this: Don't change the name "NPSWF32_11_6_602_180.dll" in the macromedia folder. Paste a copy of the file renamed to NPSWF32.dll in the plugin folder of Firefox or set the Firefox.exe from default mode to Win2000.


If this doesn't work look in the registry and delete the keys FlashPlayerPlugin, FlashPlayerUpdate (with path and version) HKLM\SOFTWARE\Macromedia\FlashPlayerPlugin, HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Macromedia\FlashPlayerUpdate and HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Macromedia\FlashPlayerUpdate.


The message "A required .DLL file, WINHTTP.DLL, was not found." goes away if you paste the Winhttp.dll (XP version) in your system folder. You can download it on DllDump.com.

It worked, thanks! I'll just ignore the WINHTTP.DLL error as it has no effect.

I have flash version 11.6.602.171 (most current version right now is 11.6.602.180). Adobe's flash player test page says my flash is working (the ball is moving back and forth). I can visit other sites (youtube) and flash seems to work just fine.

I have disabled my hosts file, and tried this on FF2, Netscape 9, and Opera 12.02. I get the same results with all three. I have changed my browser User-Agent string on FF2 to a more recent version of FF - and it doesn't matter. On a win-XP computer, it works fine.

What I'm trying to do is run the flash-based speed test located here:



When I go to that page, I enter some numbers for a phone number (9 or 10 digits, the numbers don't matter) and then select "begin test". It then displays my IP and something that looks like a tachometer and a cute diagram of a computer and server separated by a data pipe. After a few seconds I get a message saying "Unable to connect to the test server - A firewall or VPN might be blocking the connection to our speed test server. Please check and try again".

I'm using neither a VPN, proxy, nor a firewall.

For some reason, this flash app doesn't work for win-98se with Kex, but it does work for me when I try it from a win-XP computer.

Does that speed test URL work for anyone else running win-98?
