How to update NPSWF32.dll

Nov 7, 2010 3:20 AM

As I understand the file c:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash\NPSWF32.dll is part of the Flash?

When updating flash I expect this file to be updated as well as the Flash10*.ocx file? (my current version is that latest -  Flash10l.ocx)

For some reason this is not happening.

Question: How can I update my NPSWF32.dll file to the newest version? (My current version is which is reported by to be insecure)

Should this file have been updated by the install_flash_player_10_active_x.msi?

Any information will be appreciated.

    uinstall flash player plugin using your os uninstaller and save no settings if offered.  once uninstalled that dll should be removed.  then install the latest fp version that suits your needs.
