Windows 7 and Adobe Flash Player
« on: July 20, 2011, 09:21:24 PM »
I'm running Win 7 pro 32 bit and cannot watch Youtube with IE8. It says you must install adobe flash player 10.3. I download it with the message "you are now running adobe flash player 10.3"  I then go to play Youtube and it tells me to down load abobe flash player 10.3.

I had this problem with foxfire also but when I downloaded adobe flash player 10.3 it works just fine.

Any ideas?

All of our 7 machines are running the pro version and are 64 bit, but we're not having any problems with youtube.  We are having a huge issue with typing responses on the board when the response goes farther than the window can view and the scroll bar has to be utilized, but I digress.  I'd suggest going into the Plug-Ins, delete it and reinstall it.

I'm running 7 64 bit and no problem with you tube or anything else for that matter
I would try chrome or Firefox . I'm not a IE fan

I found it.   Under tools/manage add-ons  adobe shockwave flash object was set to disable.

Trace, I guess plug-ins and add-ons are the same thing.


FireFox never had a problem.

Try turning on the Compatability View mode in IE.

Larry that is correct, and I've found that one console to be the primary troubleshooting spot for all things on the later versions of IE.  We still have to use that browser for a lot of applications and I almost always fix the problem by disabling everything in there, and then turning them back on in groups until I diagnose the issue.

Marc, thanks.  Will try that. :054:

I mentioned that problem awhile back and I'm using XP Pro and IE8. It's with this board and others that use the same software. If you figure it out let me know. Otherwise I have to compose in Word then copy and paste.

Marc was correct Hal. I'm testing it now and it works.  Across the top of the browser you have the URL address bar, then to the right of that a button that looks kind of like a torn piece of paper, then the refresh button.  The torn piece of paper looking button puts the browser in "Compatibility Mode" and that seems to solve the problem.



Thanks Marc. :054:

Under Tools/ Compatibility View Settings, choose "Display all websites in compatibility view", then close and reopen IE8.  The "torn piece of paper" will disappear but every website will be in compatibility view from now on.

Right now I haven't found a downside but I'm sure there will be one in the future.

As said above by Larry, I haven't experienced any negative effects viewing all websites in compatability mode.

Very interesting.  I think I'll try it on one of the work stations and just see if we have any issues with logging into secure investment sites that require IE.
