Hi Guys,

For some reason I am unable to open .swf files. It keeps trying to get me to pick proggies from the web, which I have done and downloaded Shockwafe Flash.

Any ideas?

Do a find/search for the flash.ocx file. If it appears, right-click it and then click Properties - Version. If it doesn't say "7.0.19.0", you don't have the latest version.

Also, do a find/search for the swflash.ocx file. If it appears, delete it because it's an old version of Shockwave Flash.

Shockwave Flash 8.0 is out, but it's in beta release, so don't install it yet - if you know where to find it.

Also check if you have any program that may have disable the flash on web pages. And that you do have to plugin and not just the player.

I have netscape and the flash plugin name is npswf32.dll but I got a batch file to disable it and it changes the name to npswf32.dll.off
