I suddenly started getting notes flash up telling me I needed Flash Player to access a particular function on my PC. Strange, I thought, I always keep it up to date.
Long story short, I have endlessly updated, checked it's getting past my anti-virus etc, checked it's working...it's is. Yet now I have a non-conformist printer refusing
to co-operate because 'I need to install Flash Player'.
I have 188.8.131.525 version downloaded...everything is working fine, except for my printer now. The msg says that I don't have the correct version for IE. But I don't use IE, I use Firefox, and my printer has
worked perfectly up to this point. I use Windows 7.
The error msg is:
Your version of Macromedia Flash ActiveX Control isn't compatible with this version of Windows.

I don't quite know what to do now as, apart from the printer telling me to install Flash Player, Flash Player is performing perfectly. Any IT sleuths there that can suggest next step?
Well, I'm going to answer my own post here. After hitting google and discovering I'm not alone in this issue, I found the answer.
Go to: Thank you for downloading DownloadX ActiveX Download Control from CNET Download.com
Install Active X.
Lord knows how it dropped out....but it's back and all is working.
