Question about Macromedia Flash 5.0

Flash on Windos ME

Untill recently I had no problems running Flash on my computer, which uses the Windows Me operating system. The latest version of Flash does not support ME. I have attempted to go to the Adobe and also Macromedia site to look for help or advice. My Browser freezes.

I recently tried resetting my computer to accept Flash and now am able to get some limited use of it. I have a website www.GreenSafeCleaning.com which uses Flash Sound Buttons and a Flash animation. I now can see the buttons but can not get them to play. I believe the problem is with my computer and not the web site.

Can you offer any suggested solutions, short of installing a newer opperating system ? I have re-installed Me 3 times but that has not solved the problem ...Thanks for any assistance.... Respectfully ... Earl .... P.S. The email on that web site is not correct. At about the same time I began having problems with Flash , Microsoft "updated" there Hotmail and I can no longer use it. I have a gmail account that works fine ... earltim1@gmail.com

If you have Vista instead of XP, click on the desktop shortcut to the game, go to "Property", click on the "Compatiblity" tab and put a check in "Run this program in compatiblity mode for:, now try all the choices in the dropdown box (win95, win98/win me,etc. etc) one at a time til it works. Hope this works.
Good Luck!

When I install autocad2004 in windows 7 ,autocad can't run. untill now AutoCAD 2004 can't be compatible with a Windows 7 ?


yes can be, just follow these steps:

Not compatible or not working well with windows 7?

Maybe, It doesn't work because the driver/application you installed is for other versions of operating system. I am also using windows 7 like you so don't you worry, You can still use your old installer/driver from other versions of operating systems. Just remember that before installing any program in a windows 7 Operating System Computer, Use "troubleshoot compatibility". Right Click the Icon of your program installer/application first, then choose "troubleshoot compatibility". This will allow you to choose on what type operating system your program will run. Just reply back if it still doesn't work.:D rate and vote for me:))

I have a total video player but can't start


Hi,
Flash is a programming language that many publishers use to create animations, games, and interactive programs for the web. Flash is also used for programs run locally on a users computer. To use these Flash based programs and web applets, the end-user must have Flash Player installed. One component of Flash Player is a file called “flash.ocx.” If this file is missing or damaged, you may get an error message.

There seems to be two root causes of this error. A description and solution for each follows:
  • You receive the error message “Cannot find the file flash.ocx” every time you start your computer or each time you open your web browser (such as Internet Explorer). This is usually the result of a missing “flash.ocx” file caused by an incomplete installation of Flash. Here’s how to remedy the problem:
    1. Download the Flash Player uninstaller from Macromedia. Save it somewhere convenient.
    2. Run the downloaded program and allow it to finish.
    3. Once the uninstall completes, restart your computer.
    4. Visit the Flash Player website and download/install the latest Flash Player version.
    5. That’s it!
  • You receive the error message “Cannot find the file flash.ocx” at seemingly random intervals or when starting a specific program (other than your web browser). First, perform steps 1-4 of the previous solution. This will insure you have the latest version of Flash Player installed. If you still receive the error message, continue with the steps below:
    1. Navigate to the folder “C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash\”. In this folder you will see a file named “Flash9f.ocx”.
    2. Make copy of the “Flash9f.ocx” file in the same folder as the original (copy the original, then paste the copied file into the same folder).
    3. Rename the newly made copy to “Flash.ocx”.
    4. If the previous steps don’t eradicate the error messages, change your screen saver to one of the defaults that are included with Windows (such as “3D Text”).
Fixya!
