For All The Unlucky Chrome Users Happens To Them This File...
Step 1 : Go To Internet Explorer
Step 2 : Enter Any Game Uses ABOBE SHOCWAVE.
Step 3 : Wait In IE (Internet Explorer) Tell It Says Down At The Left Corner : Download Xtra File ...
Step 4 : After It Finishes Download ... Go To Google Chrome ...
Step 5 : Now Go To Any Game That Had The Same Error ...
Step 6 : Have Fun And Tell Me If Any Proplems .
Thanks for the advice. I had been frustrated with this problem (using Chrome). So, I went to IE as you suggested and still no luck (i.e. - pun intended here - no "download xtra file" message came up). Any thoughts? Thanks once again.
Download & run the full installer; it should install all XTRA components.
Thanks for the advice. Unfortunately I'm still getting the same error
message, even though (with all the full versions of Shockwave I've
installed) the Swadcmpr.x32 file is contained in the Xtras folder. Can not
figure it out! I'm wondering if it could be an error with their website?
I had a look at some of the sites mentioned earlier in this topic. It seems that some of the sites go and install an older Shockwave Player version.
Do you have any Shockwave or Director folder
Shockwave Player should be installed in C:\Windows\system32\Adobe\Shockwave11 (or C:\Windows\syswow64\Adobe\Shockwave11) only.
Sorry, I was visiting relatives with no internet. Thanks a lot for the help
BTW! As a matter of fact ... there IS an older version of Shockwave (v 10)
in the Macromedia folder. I installed 11 in the Adobe folder. However, I
just went to the site with which I was having problems (
enough, it is now working - and I have no clue why (I'm sure I would have
restarted the comp in my efforts the other day). It's really odd! But, I'm
not going to look a gift horse in the mouth! Thanks once again Pat!
