  • I run 64 bit, didn't work.

  • I like how you add these little facts later :( but either way did you read all of the info in the link ?

    For Vista (64 bit):

    1. Open Computer.

    2. Navigate to C:\Windows\SysWOW64\.

    3. Scroll down and open the Macromed directory.

    4. Open the Flash directory.

    5. Right-click FlashUtil9b.

    6. Select Run as Administrator.

    7. When the UAC prompt appears, select Continue.

    8. Follow the Flash Player installation wizard.

    Once the wizard completes, Flash Player has been properly installed and will now function properly.

  • Yes, I did all those steps.
    It doesn't work.

    If you run a vista or windows 7, put up a web browser in a form, and try to navigate to a flash document, it won't play, inf fact it will make an X over where the flash document should be.

  • Do you have a link to a Flash site ?

  • Anyway if you can load flash on the 32 browser then you an try making your app target the x86 OS then it might be able to load flash in a browser control .

  • It works, but will it work for Windows XP as well?
    Tuesday, September 29, 2009 11:13 PM
  • Ok, Me and my friend both run vista. I run Vista Ultimate, and he runs Windows's Vista Home Premium. The flash file works on my computer, but doesn't work on his, Is there a way I can make it work on both types of computers aswell as XP?

  • I tried getting it to go to x64 to see if that would work on his version. But then this happened:


    And I can't fix it.
    Wednesday, September 30, 2009 12:58 AM
  • Ok, nevermind, I fixed it.
    BUT I still ask how I can do this for all versions of vista, and windows XP.

  • If it targets x86 it is 32bit and should work on XP and Vista in 32bit mode .

  • Hi NintendoZACHERY,

        I'm going to close this thread since your original question has been answered and you have created a new thread about the last question.
        It will be benifical to keep a thread under one topic
        Thanks for your understanding and support.

    Regards
    Jeff Shan

  • Hello NintendoZACHERY,

     

    Considering that many developers in this forum ask how to manipulate WebBrowser component (enabling flash, suppressing error messages, proxy support), rotate or flip images, my team has created a code sample for this frequently asked programming task in Microsoft All-In-One Code Framework. You can download the code samples at:

     

    VBWebBrowserWithProxy

     

    http://bit.ly/VBWebBrowserWithProxy

     

    CSWebBrowserWithProxy

     

    http://bit.ly/CSWebBrowserWithProxy

     

    With these code samples, we hope to reduce developers’ efforts in solving the frequently asked

    programming tasks. If you have any feedback or suggestions for the code samples, please email us: onecode@microsoft.com.

    ------------

    The Microsoft All-In-One Code Framework (http://1code.codeplex.com) is a free, centralized code sample library driven by developers' needs. Our goal is to provide typical code samples for all Microsoft development technologies, and reduce developers' efforts in solving typical programming tasks.

    Our team listens to developers’ pains in MSDN forums, social media and various developer communities. We write code samples based on developers’ frequently asked programming tasks, and allow developers to download them with a short code sample publishing cycle. Additionally, our team offers a free code sample request service. This service is a proactive way for our developer community to obtain code samples for certain programming tasks directly from Microsoft.

    Thanks
