Shockwave Player will not work on WinXP x64

Jun 15, 2011 4:50 PM

OS: WinXP Pro x64, fully patched (sp2)

Browsers:  IE8, Firefox 4.0.1, Chrome (most recent version as of 6/15/11)


(Flash 10,3,181,26)


IE8 - cannot read Flash/Shockwave test page: tab crashes with Windows crash of something regarding "AutoComplete".


Firefox 4 - Shockwave plugin appears to be installed, but plugin not detected on Flash/Shockwave test page (Shockwave area of page is blank).


Chrome - "Missing plugin" for Shockwave.


All previous versions of Shockwave worked perfectly on this computer in all browsers.


Any ideas?  Was this version of Shockwave tested on WinXP x64?

    This is a user forum. And since I don't have a 64-bit system yet, I cannot try it out myself.
