Shockwave element commonly know as flash player is for Youtube content for the most part but allot of website also use it,
Can you watch youtube videos ?

It is a file I have had for quite some time that I used to use Adobe Flash Player to open and play the video. Likely I got it from You Tube as I have often done that When I try to open it now it won't open at all and I see a message which I cannot copy or paste in here. "We're Sorry. In order to view a video, you must have the latest version of Macromedia's Flash Player installed on your local computer. Sometimes, problems with a Flash Player that is already installed can prevent your upgrading to the latest versions."

Hi thanks,
Right click the file and click on Properties,
Detail section and see what the file extension is,
Right click it again and click on open with and browser for Internet explorer,
C/ Program Files/ Internet explorer/ iexplore.exe
Uncheck the box to always open this file type with ie this would just be for a test,
Cheers.

Hi Thrashzone: I right clicked - Properties and it is a MHTML Document (.mht) and opens with Internet Explorer. I could not follow or get to the place to remove the check mark -C:?Program Files/Internet Explorer/ieexplor.exe.

Thanks for your assistance with my problem!!

Adobe Flash Video Player - NOT WORKING

Hi: No the file I have been trying to open will NOT PLAY/OPEN!! IT is kind of weird as I do see Adobe Flash Player when I go to Control Panel/Programs and Features.- but if I go to the list of Default Programs when I try to open the file with another Program (OPEN WITHJ) it is not there! How can I get it to show up in available Default Programs?
I had trouble with this Adobe Flash Player back in May or June and I found some help on the web at that time where I was given two files to down load and save on a disk - Uninstaller and then a new Installer. It worked back then but I have tried the same thing now but no luck!!!
I just tried to copy and paste the file in here but it will not allow me to do so. If you would send me your personal email I could send it there or at least I think I could. Yes I could do this as I just was able to email it to myself but of course I still get the same message about not being able to open it.
It used to open when I saved it on my computer.

Hi,
C/ Windows/ System32/ Macromed/ Flash,
The file should be the only one with a flash player symbol FlashUtil64_15_0_0_167_ActiveX this seems to be the .exe file
Like I said before on the first screen it should show a box to Uncheck on the bottom left I believe so if it's not the correct or does not work all file type won't be effected by the file type switch until confirmed it works

Adobe Flash Player problems

Hi: How do I put the file in a Zip Folder? Are you talking about WinZip? I don't have that on my computer at this time. You will have to give me some more instructions for this. I did email it to my self and it came through okay.
