Fresh out of Google suppot -

"Download the flash player for windows xpi file - http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/xpi/current/flashplayer-win.xpi

"Rename the file to .zip

"Explore the .zip file and you will see a couple files, flashplayer.xpt and NPSWF32.dll, which you have to copy.

"Open another explorer window and go to the plugins folder of your google chrome browser, which might be at -
C/Documents and settings//Local Settings/Application Data/Google/Chrome/Application/Plugins/

"Paste both the files in this plugins folder and then close your Chrome browser and restart it

Those instructions worked fine for me, but I had to make one small change to the advice given there - Vista uses a different folder structure, so I had to paste the two necessary files into C:\Users\{Username}\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\Plugins

The folder Plugins did not exist when I navigated my way there, so I created it and dropped the two files in, restarted the Chrome browser and ... Voila! Working fine

Other thing I’d say is that my first step was to visit the Chrome Help pages, in particular, http://www.google.com/support/chrome/bin/answer.py?answer=95697&cbid=1798iqe1e7223&src=cb&lev=answer

and installed Java 6 v 10 like they suggested, before doing the Flash business

Install chrome flash player version


Enable or disable Adobe Flash Player

These instructions apply to Google Chrome on Windows, Mac, Linux, and Chrome OS.

  1. Type chrome:plugins in the address bar to open the Plug-ins page.
  2. On the Plug-ins page that appears, find the "Flash" listing.
    • To enable Adobe Flash Player, click the Enable link under its name.
    • To disable Adobe Flash Player completely, click the Disable link under its name.

Note: If you've previously installed Adobe Flash Player separately, you'll see two files listed for the plug-in. If both are listed as enabled, the version bundled with Chrome will be used. To enable a specific version of Adobe Flash Player, click Details in the upper-right corner of the page. Then click the Enable link for the version of Adobe Flash Player you want to enable. The table below shows the filename for the version that is integrated with Google Chrome.

I can download adobe flash player but it wont install it.


Well, on Apple iPads, it's a matter of taste; they chose not to accept Flash plugins depending on the firmware, because it's just a huge surface for malware vulnerabilities and sapping the responsiveness of the device. Meanwhile, what are you saying won't install Flash Player and what error message comes forth? Perhaps you picked the wrong download when you went to Adobe's site, or your antivirus is keeping you from installing an obsolete version off disk for the same reasons Apple had. The error messages and antivirus logs should clear up the path for you.

When trying to play my online game I am getting the error message "there was an error creating the 3D window.


Check that you have all the needed plugins installed. Depending on the game you're playing, this could differ.

Some that are used:
- Java Runtime environment - Click
- Adobe Flash - Click

It could be a browser issue. You could try reinstalling your browser and installing the necessary plugins.

Also make sure you have the latest graphics drivers installed for your graphics card.
