I've technically been asking this three times on Yahoo!
Answers, and this is copied directly from my most recently
Typical SwDnld Error?
OK, here's the general description:
I've never had any trouble logging in on Habbo Hotel with
Shockwave Player 9, but all of a sudden THIS happens: In Firefox,
the pop-up window appears immediately, which is great, but it's
empty, which is not great. I've been waiting for hours checking if
it was loading something or not, so that's definitely not the
Maybe it doesn't work with Firefox, due to the consequences
of some recent requirement-related update? Oh well, try it in
Netscape, Opera and Internet Explorer as well.
Same results in Netscape and Opera, but in Internet Explorer
things go real interesting. Another pop-up window appears inside
the loader pop-up window, kindly stating that 'you need Adobe
Shockwave Player to enter Habbo Hotel'.
Well of course!
But I've already GOT Adobe Shockwave Player, but since there
IS a button here allowing me to download it anyway, why don't I try

SwDnld is unable to continue.
Try rebooting if problems occur repeatedly.

I remove it and try again. The same thing happens. I go back
to Adobe and find that Director has reappeared. Not good. I delete
it again, but this time I keep the window open, doing the same
installation process again; this time I see how the folder pops
forth out of nowhere after a while.
Apparently there's some kind of compatibility problem
somewhere. I've updated to Shockwave 11 now and I'm using Windows
ME. I greatly appreciate any answer.
Every word is true. I have got no problems whatsoever with
Shockwave save this. I've been able to use the hotel on both
Firefox and IE with Shockwave 9 for years, probably, but when it
suddenly stopped working I updated to Shockwave 11, though it
didn't help. I'm attempting to reinstall everything for the third
time while writing this, I really hope there's something you can do
to help me.
