Whoa… two versions of Flash now needed!

Postby Get Real! » Sun Sep 23, 2012 6:48 pm

Unfortunately there seems to be two versions of Flash now provided by Adobe… one for IE and one for “other browsers”!

This means that all those using two or more browsers (usually IE with something else) will no longer be able to!

I’ve just tried installing both versions and they conflict… you can only run one and only one of the two browsers works!

Of course this is early stages for me with this problem so I may have missed out something…

Btw, if you're playing around with this too just remember that you have to use the Flash removing tool with each change or nothing works.

For those who are wondering what the fuck is going on just don’t upgrade your Flash to the latest version or you’ll need some kind of Flash version manager too! If yours works just leave it.

Why don't you upgrade your Flash and get back to us if it works with IE and Chrome? :wink:

There won't be an overnight change… expect things to migrate in parallel over a few years.
