Shockwave Flash plugin error

Mar 4, 2012 10:32 AM

I am running Netscape 7.2 on a Windows 7 - 64 bit OS.  When I open any link to a page with dynamic content, I receive an error window from the Shockwave Flash plugin, saying that the plugin performed an illegal operation, following which the system locks up.  For example, the problem will occur if I go to the Adobe page that dynamically displays the installed Shockwave Flash plugin version.  The Netscape program has been operating for a long time without this problem, so it must be something that I did recently.  Any suggestion on how to solve this will be appreciated.

    Try asking on a Flash Player forum - this one is for Director's Shockwave Player, not Flash.

    Macromedia screwed up the namespace. They already had a plugin called Shockwave (the Director plugin) when they named the Flash Player plugin "Shockwave Flash". You need to ask your question on another forum.
