I've looked everywhere and I don't know why no one seems to be talking about this.
When I view a SWF in a browser it uses Flash Player 11.6, but when I view a SWF on my hard drive it uses Flash Player 10. Why is this? It's driving me nuts.
I already know that Chrome uses multiple different Flash Players. One of them is the built-in Flash Player and the other is the "system" Flash Player. I assumed the system Flash Player was the one that's run when I open SWF's on my hard drive, but that's clearly not the case. I tried uninstalling Flash Player and I could still open SWF's on my hard drive and they still said Flash Player 10. What's going on here? How many Flash Players do I have? It looks like there's a built-in Chrome Flash Player, a system Flash Player, AND a Flash Player that's used for running SWF's on my hard drive.
I'm running Windows XP and I have the latest version of Flash Player. I know this because I've been installing it over and over again trying to fix this problem.
The standalone Flash Player (Projector) is not updated with the Flash Player browser add-ons; you need to download the latest standalone player manually from http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html
Hey, it looks like it's working now. Thank you. I didn't know it was called Projector.
