Im currently having an issue with Flash 10.1 on a new student image im creating,
After testing the install of 10.1.122.64 this is the findings i made:-
As administrator i could run Mainstream Flash players such as BBC iplayer and youtube
As limited user i could also run mainstream flash players
As administrator i could run embedded flash videos
as limited user i could not run embedded flash videos
This is proving somewhat a big issue as the machines we have that cant run embedded flash videos some of them have Adobe Web design CS5 and they are unable to test their flash videos through IE8
Our current image uses Windows XP with IE8 and office 2010 amongst other things
if you need any more information please let me know.
Did you allow 3rd-party Flash content at http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/se ttings_manager03.html ?
I searched and found that the new update does not work unless you are using an Admin account and have UAC turned off. I followed their instructions and used a flash remover program, set my account type to Admin and turned UAC off. I then downloaded flash and it worked OK then. So I changed my account back to a regular account and turned UAC back on all so I could have safer surfing and flash stopped working again. I am really disappointed with adobe about this. There are a lot of sites that I used to go to that are basically worthless to me now. Adobe obviously did not test the new upgrade very well.
Changing the settings does not help. My settings were already allowing 3rd party flash anyways. I did up the amount that was allowed to be stored to 1 meg, and still cannot access a lot of my favorite sites. Below is a good example of a web site that is not viewable to me now any longer. And just since I updated flash. I do not want to have to surf with an Admin account. It is not safe that way!
Hi all , thanks for your responses :-
Willenger - I have 3rd party flash content enabled already,
SOS - After checking the two video links youve both posted , the youtube one works, the embedded one SOS linked doesnt.
ive increased the amount allowed aswell to no avail.
thanks for your updates but no success so far, any other questions or details you need, give me a shout
Yes, I can go to youtube.com and view the video clips there. But many web sites (I guess with embedded flash) that I used to visit regularly, I cannot anymore. Like the Dr Mercola web site. None of the videos there work. And I cannot link to youtube by clicking on the video. There is just a rectangle where the video should be with a tiny square in the top left. Clicking anywhere does nothing. I uninstalled adobe again, set my account type to Admin and turned UAC off and re-installed flash and it worked fine just like before. But as soon as I turned on UAC and reset my account to standard user, flash stopped working like it should. I guess I am gonna try installing the previous version till adobe gets this problem worked out.
Still not working. I cannot get either of the previous versions to work now. The account that works is the main Admin account. Even changing my other account to Admin and with the UAC off, flash still does not work properly. It works perfect in the one account.
Maybe the last windows update is the culprit.....
ok, so i tried to install it as the limited user with admin login, but this isnt possible as the limited user has had right click disabled
also not been able to install an old version either as that was my backup plan, we currently have 10.0.22.87 working with embedded flash on other machines, which seems a bit odd to be honest.
