I've been running Flash 8 since it came out. Flash has always
been buggy, but this is a new one; it won't remain open unless I
unplug my network cable. I start Flash, it opens, but immediately
crashes once all its windows are open. I unplug the network, and
everything's fine. Any thoughts?
Well, I trashed my "en" settings folder from
C:\Documents and Settings\<myuser>\Local
Settings\Application Data\Macromedia\Flash 8
Works now. We'll see for how long. And YAY! all my settings
are gone. I've had to do this a bunch of times with different
versions of Flash. What an insane way to store settings on a user's
OK, it keeps happening. This time, I unplugged the network
and opened Flash, then closed the (useless) "Start Page" and also
closed the HELP window. Maybe those do network things that are
bad... Close Flash. Plug network back in. Start Flash.
