    How to upgrade flash.ocx

    byg7668
      I have Dreamweaver 2004 MX. It installed flash.ocx and NPSWF32.dll in several places that are now old, insecure versions. Can I upgrade them to the laster version of flash, and if so, how?

      They're installed at:

      C:\Program Files\Macromedia\Dreamweaver MX 2004\Configuration\Flash Player\Flash.ocx (version 6.0.68.0)

      C:\Documents and Settings\Brian\Application Data\Macromedia\Dreamweaver MX 2004\Configuration\Flash Player\Flash.ocx (version 6.0.68.0)

      C:\Program Files\Macromedia\Dreamweaver MX 2004\Configuration\Flash Player\NPSWF32.dll (version 9.0.45.0)

      C:\Documents and Settings\Brian\Application Data\Macromedia\Dreamweaver MX 2004\Configuration\Flash Player\NPSWF32.dll (version 9.0.45.0)

      C:\Program Files\Macromedia\Dreamweaver MX 2004\Configuration\Plugins\NPSWF32.dll (version 9.0.45.0)

      While I'm at it, in the C:\Windows\System32 folders there are also slightly older versions of flash. The Adobe update site claims that it's upgrading to 9.0.47.0, but the files still report the older version number.

      C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\Macromed\Flash\Flash9b.ocx (version 9.0.28.0)
      C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\Macromed\Flash\NPSWF32.dll (version 9.0.45.0)

      Thank you,
      Brian
