      Where is the location of Shared Objects for Flash Player 11 in Vista?

          Either in %appdata%\Adobe\Flash Player or %appdata%\Macromedia\Flash Player

            Thanks for your reply.

             

            I can find those directories as you have suggested but with directory  roaming

             

            AppData\Roaming\Adobe.....

             

            AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects...

             

            In Flash Player 10, it is stored in :

            AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects...

             

            But when I installed Flash Player 11 and went to the site I want data  to be stored, it wasn't there (I expected the data to be stored in this directory as it did using Flash player 10) . I am just wondering if Flash Player 10 and 11 use the same folder.

             

            I need to know because I want to make a backup of the data , so that I can manually put them back when installing new flashplayer.

             

            Flash Player 11 erases  old data upon installation.

              It's the same location for player 10 and 11, but the path is different for Windows versions, so it's best to use the %APPDATA% environment variable to go there.
