Newest Adobe Flash and Shockwave, and Java, too!

For some reason only the Shockwave full version seems to work on my setup. Years ago I tried the slim version but it didn't seem to work so I just use the "full version".

 

dencorso ... thanks for the explanation and the link. So when I see that File Hippo has a new Shockwave full version ... I will just download it from the link you provided.

Acheron ... I will also save your msi download link. I already have the current version installed from October but I decided to download the version again from both the DL links provided by you and dencorso.

 

I really have never downloaded from msi links ... just exe links. I noticed that the two downloads are different in size.

 

The "exe" download is 12.5 mb and the "msi" download is 23.6 mb ... was curious why that is the case?

 

Both downloads should be identical once installed ... a full version of Shockwave?

 

Thanks

bwcat,

 

    I don't have that file on my computer ... Director MX 2004 Compatible update Files for 10.4 in the System32\Macromed\Shockwave 10 folder ... there is no Shockwave 10 folder in the Macromed folder ... just a Flash folder only.

 

I guess because I only use the Shockwave exe download that this is the case. When I go to a Shockwave test page ... it shows I have Shockwave installed.

 

A flash and shockwave test page ... click on System Details on the left side.

I went to another Shockwave test page ... Adobe and it says there is a new Shockwave version available.

Version 12.2.2.172

 

It's not at File Hippo yet so I don't know if it's already at the exe and msi links.

Hi.

 

I think the the 10.4 Update is provided for Security Update for the users who installed old version before.

MSI version installs new version only.

 

It is related the following article.

http://www.kb.cert.org/vuls/id/546769

 

My system also shows Version 12.2.2.172

I just wanted to announce that Adobe Flash Player 20 is available.

 

This is the first time there is a different version number for the Google Chrome/Internet Explorer and Firefox/Opera builds.

 

Google Chrome and Internet Explorer utilize 20.0.0.228, while non-ActiveX plug-in based browsers such as Firefox and Opera use 20.0.0.235.

 

I have confirmed it works on XP SP2 and SP3 systems. You can download each one here (Chrome has it built in, no separate download necessary):

 

Internet Explorer:

http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/20.0.0.228/install_flash_player_ax.exe

 

Firefox and other plug-in based browsers:

 

http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/20.0.0.235/install_flash_player.exe

Hi sdfox7. It is good to know if there are different versions released for Chrome, IE, Firefox and other browsers, but it is not the first time in the history of the Adobe Flash Player.

 

I have seen a difference in version numbering last year, when Adobe released 12.0.0.38 for activex and 12.0.0.43 for npapi plugins.

 

And in 2013 Adobe released 11.8.800.174 and 11.8.800.175 for activex only.

Thanks for the heads-up on that, I was not aware. It seems that they are more often consistent with the version scheme.

 

The important thing about this release is that it patches 79 security holes!  :dubbio:

However, this ability the FF team has of blocking things suddenly from their side is surely annoying, to say the least!

In Firefox, I have set this option to run any plugin version: extensions.blocklist.enabled . This setting is non-discoverable, buried deep in about:config, and seems to pertain to scripted 'extensions' and not binary plugins (searching for 'plugin' would yield nothing, and I can only learn about this option after I search on the web).

Firefox 27 and Flash 11.4 still working fine. All video sites and casual vector games still work in this Flash. Macromedia has put out 5 major versions of it withing in one year. Omg, the bandwidth that's wasted on those updates...

I was seriously upset when I updated to a recent version of Opera (Opium), and it blocked my version of Flash. I was unable to find a setting, hidden or otherwise, to control this beahavior. Opera is not the controllable, power-user's version of Chrome I hoped it would be.

I use the ESR release which also came out today ... Extended Support Release - Flash Player 18.0.0.352 (Win & Mac) for my IE 8 version.

At the K-Meleon forum JohnHell just posted the plugin version ... which I use for K-Meleon and Pale Moon (Atom).

General :  K-Meleon Forum - NPSWF32-all versions

http://kmeleonbrowser.org/forum/list.php?1

It's on the last page 17 ...

Re: Flash Player 21.0.0.242 & 18.0.0.352 ESR

NPSWF32_18_0_0_352.7z (ESR)
Previous version being exploited in the wild...

after you download it you have to rename it to NPSWF32.dll and copy it into the K-Meleon plugin folder or Pale Moon plugin folder.

Just to add: this is where I get the ESR version for IE 8 ... there seems to have been an update already.
