    A couple of days ago, I was trying to play games on Neopets, which use Shockwave, but I couldn't play because an error message would come up.

    This is the first message:
    "Director Player Error - This application requires an Xtra (Flash Movie..) that either does not exist or failed to initialize properly. Please make sure the appropriate Xtras are in the Xtras folder/s."

    And then when I click Ok, this error message pops up:
    "This Shockwave movie has errors that have caused playback problems. Shockwave is unable to continue."

    The error message comes up everytime I try to play Neopets games, and never used to have any problems like this. What does this mean and what should I do?

    Okay, I fixed it. I uninstalled Shockwave and then installed it again and everything's working fine.
