I have Picture Package. Isn't working. Says I

One thing to try is change your screensaver to a Windows default style, Stars, Windows Logo etc. Macromedia had a problem with older screensavers. Give it a shot. Good luck.

I have sondy handycam hc-36e but while runing the picture package showing error " to run this application, you need to install macromedia flash player first"

If Macromedia Flash Player 8 is installed on a computer where no previous versions of the Macromedia Flash Player have been installed, then the Picture Package Menu option may be unable to start. To resolve this issue, download and install the Picture Package Menu update from the Picture Package Web site at:
The issue should be resolved.

Macromedia's Flash Player is commonly used within video handling packages as a utility to enable compatibility across systems and platforms. It is available as a free download from Macromedia via the Internet. Suggest you install it as instructed to enable you to complete your DVD write.

Macromedia flash player and sony dcr-hc19e

Have found the solution to the problem. If you cannot access Picture Package because it says Macromedia Flash needs to be downloaded, and you have already downloaded Flash successfully then the problem is with Picture Package, and it needs to be updated. Go to and download the most recent update for your version of Picture Package. This solved the problem for me and hopefully will do the same for you!

Macromedia Flash

I am wrting in regards to my Sony Handycam DCR-HC36. I am having problems with the Picture Package software when I try to load my video. When I try to transfer my videos (from my Handycam) to my Pesonal Computer, the picture package(software) menu does not appear on my PC(The picture package software is already installed).

Everytime I try to click on the Picture Package Icon on my desktop, there is a pop-up that says I "must install Macromedia Flash Player for Application to continue".

I went ahead and installed the Adobe (Macromedia) Flash Player and it still doesn't work when I try to click on the Picture Package Icon. The pop-up still comes up. I also, re-installed some of the requirements for the for the camera to work such as Direct X and Windows Media Player.

I also enabled my Javascript(active Script).

The problem is most likely within my PC(maybe I'm missing another type of software???), what do you think are my options in resolving this matter?

Please help me out
