Default Flash problem with Opera 9.64

C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash\Flash10b.ocx

I also noticed an old Shockwave Helper file in one of the folders Anupam mentions, namely -
C:\WINDOWS\system32\Adobe\Shockwave 11\SwHelper_1151600

So, it seems Adobe's own custom uninstallers still don't do an adequate job.
I followed this to no avail.

...\Flash\ did not have any old files except for two log files

Was sure I saw ...\system32\Adobe\ but "Adobe" subdirectory disappeared when I cliced on it and looked away for a second.

Flash and Shockwave installed fine, and web media and animations play in Firefox but not in Opera 9.64. It used to work; can someone help here.

quixter,

Opera 9.64 is to old you will have to update to get Flash and Shockwave to install with the newest versions.

I too had problems with flash when I was using Opera 9.64. Maybe, that version of Opera was buggy with flash player. As Dan pointed out, Opera has a newer version : 10.60. You should try it. I have downloaded the latest version, but I have not tried it.

I hope you are using the latest version of Flash Player, which is 10.1.53.64. Flash Player Uninstaller has also been updated to a new version, so please download that too.

Also, I have moved the posts from the other thread, as your query is related to a problem on your PC, whereas the thread was about Flash Player in general. Please start a new thread next time, under similar circumstances. This helps in keeping things organized . Thanks.

Others are having no problem with Opera 9.64. I used to have no problems, and am not ready to update Opera to current version (maybe to version 10.1 but not decided).
I hope you are using the latest version of Flash Player, which is 10.1.53.64. Flash Player Uninstaller has also been updated to a new version, so please download that too.
Yes, downloaded current uninstallers and programs. Flash 10.1.53.64 identified in FF, but nothing found in a test from Opera. Anyone know of a fix in Opera settings?
