Windows 7: PowerPoint 2010 + Flash Bug.

09 May 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
PowerPoint 2010 + Flash Bug.


today, I've encountered quite odd thing. I'm working on a presentation, which includes .swf or else Flash videos or w/e it's called.

First time;

I went to 'Insert' => 'Video' => 'Video From File' and it loaded it and when I launched the presentation, it played the content.

Second time;

I opened it today and it won't play.

Windows Media Player

To play the selected item, you must install the Adobe Flash Player. To download the Adobe Flash Player, go to the Adobe Web site.
This pops out and somewhat tells me to get the Flash Player, which I already have. Some time between, I installed Flash CS5.5 Professional, that's maybe why something went wrong, but what exactly.., I can't tell.

It's like PowerPoint 2010 was using WMP to play its content by default or some similar bullshit. Truth is that before I installed the Flash CS5.5 Suite, I didn't even have Flash Player and PowerPoint worked fine, once I got the Flash Player delivered within the CS5.5 Suite, it suddenly starts asking me about downloading it, isn't that weird?

I'll be grateful for any suggestions, just, solutions like: "Go, uninstall it, than install again." - please no.

Best Regards,
