Ok i'm going to give my information. I have windows xp sp3 pro 32bit. I upgraded internet explorer to flash 10.3.183.7 and I upgraded firefox 3.6 but opera will not upgrade. I do not get a error notice but when I do the upgrade and then check at the adobe site firefox has upgaded but opera hasn't. I have administrative rights so what do i do now? I tried having firefox download and save then open. I tried having opera do the same and i tried just having opera open using run?
Ok this is what i found. I have been on this for most of the day. I found out that opera is using a firefox plugin for flash in program files/mozilli/firefox/plugins/nppdf32.dll. Now firefox is using the flash plugin that i downloaded in windows/system32/macromed/flash. I have no clue how to link them and the plugin folder in opera is empty. In the windows system folder that has flash in there are four objects,two are active x for internet explorer and what's left is a flashutil10w_ plugin and flash10w.ocx'. I have no clue if I can link this folder to opera. i was going to try and download a flash player for portble opera browsers but I'm too confused.Can anyone give me a idea? i have looked at almost every opera flash instalation guide and the more i look at the more confused i am. Thanks I know this is not great reading. I'll stop back later.

I do not know opera, and why it is not using the standard plugin folder. The above looks like the Adobe Reader plugin. Can you try and copy NPSWF32.dll to that folder?
Either way, I would also go and look for an opera forum; people there may know more than I.
