I have several old Windows XP machines that run perfectly fine with Firefox 30.0 and the latest Flash Player 188.8.131.52.
Thank you for replying. And I'm glad to hear that a solution with Windows XP is a possibility. But OS isn't my main concern.
Adobe says a 2.33-GHz CPU is one of the system requirements for Flash Player v14. AFAIK, my CPU is at 2 GHz max. What's the newest version of Player that would work with that?
I can check the CPU speed on some of these old XP systems tomorrow. I am sure that they are much, much slower than 2 GHz. One is a Dell Optiplex that was purchased new with Windows 2000 on it. I think it was a GX270 model with a Celeron processor (400 MHz). Latest Flash Player runs fine on it.
You can install the latest version of Flash Player 14 on your system. 2.33 GHz has been listed for several releases on the Tech Specs, including 11.8 which you have installed. Flash Player 14 should work on your system.
My thanks to you as well. These two fairly authoritative answers give me some courage to try the update -- one of these days soon when I have some time to spare, just in case.
But if 2.33 GHz isn't required, why has Adobe been saying that it is? Can't they give separate sets of specs for "system requirements" and "system recommendations", or some such?
