Windows 7 Sony Vaio, Windows pc 64-bit
My seperate flash player plug-in doesn't work when I click on a SWF file in my folders.
I've been here: http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/ where it shows adobe flash is installed and working. However, it only works in CS5.5 adobe flash while viewing a FLA file and clicking on ctrl/enter.
But when I click on a swf file in a folder, nothing happens. I've associated the swf files with HTML so it opens with IE9. But it won't open as a seperate window as it does while in CS5.5 Adobe flash.
What is the association to the file I can write in? It's not:
C:\Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash, FlashInstall.log flashplayer.xpt FlashUtil11e_Plugin.exe"
Because that is the uninstaller. Thanks.
Also how do I find this answer.
I solved my own problem:
I use windows 7 and this is my solution.
The file I needed, the stand alone swf player is called: flashplayer_11_sa_32bit - this is the player i needed.
I accidently found this site:
and found I only needed one of these 4 files (the one above in paranthesis) . I then tested it and when it worked, I placed this stand alone program in with my Adobe CS5.5 folder but in a seperate folder. Then I made an association to it with my SWF files. I rightclick on SWF file, I choose OPEN WITH and locate the new file I just put into the new folder in Adobe. I put it in with Adobe so it will not get lost.
, Now when I double click on a SWF file, the Flash program opens and I can play my swf file. However i am leary of updating it because though I run a 64 bit program it runs perfectly.
