Flash Player and .SWF

I am a new upcoming Web Designer. I created two web pages for
my web site, in Adobe Flash Pro CS3, and I published it for HTML
view. I upload it to the server the page would play but when I'd go
to click on the buttons that would link to the other pages of my
website, it would not go in. So at first my first thought that
there might have been some actionscript issue going on with the
flash buttons. But when I went to the original .FLA file on the
buttons it worked fine for the folder that it was in, so I figured
let me re-route these buttons to the actual website using the
website and its directory for the buttons to link. Still did not
work, as a matter of fact when I re-checked it again using the
browser this message box open up with this error message:"Adobe
Flash Player has stopped a potentially unsafe operations the
following local application on your computer or network:
C:\AD%20Creative%20Media%20&%20Designs\index.swf is trying to
communicate with this Internet-enabled location:
www.andersondominique.com To let this application communicate with
the Internet, Click Settings. You must restart the application
after changing your settings." So I did clicked on the settings
button, which lead me to the this website but on a different page.
I changed the security settings like it asked me to for at least
100 times today, and I am not getting a different result. Can
somebody please help me! I really need to get this website up and
running properly its for me to get a job. Im desperate! If anyone
out there is familiar with this problem please answer me or better
yet email me at: [email protected] THANK YOU!

We've recently made a number of security-related changes to how UNC paths are handled in Flash Player, and in addition, have restricted some network requests from being made for locally-executed SWFs running with local-with-filesystem permissions.  These changes were necessary, as we found ourselves on the wrong side of a confluence of both old and emerging standards and conventions, and a very forgiving approaches to incorrectly constructed URLs in most major browsers.
Where we could, we added good debugging messages, so installing a an ActionScript debugger version of Flash and running the application might provide you with some useful clues; however, as complexity increases, I'm not convinced that using Flash Player to execute SWFs locally in the browser is going to be smooth sailing, and I anticipate that we'll see additional churn as we evaluate and align with the expectations of the modern web in this regard.
The good news is that we have Adobe AIR, which is designed to make it really easy to port your Flash Content, and it's specifically designed to build desktop applications, free from the complexity of browser plug-ins.  As a least-cost, long-term strategy, I'd strongly encourage you to evaluate porting your SWF over to AIR.  It may be as easy as just changing the publishing target in a current version of Flash Professional and distributing your application as an AIR payload instead.
Alternatively, you could stand up a local webserver and host both the content and the SWF.  The really hairy edge-cases stem from the fact that we're trying to support HTTP and UNC paths simultaneously.  If you're using HTTP, things are much, much more straightforward.
If you can narrow it down to the failing ActionScript call, I might be able to give you a more specific suggestion for a workaround.

  • Does updating Flash Player and Adobe Air solve the Swf.Exploit.CVE_2014_0581 problem?

    My ClamXav found the following attached to an app (JL Edwardian Advent Calendar) on my computer: Swf.Exploit.CVE_2014_0581. I have deleted and reinstalled the app, and I have updated the Flash Player and Adobe Air, but ClamXav continues to mark it as infected. Could this be a false positive? Is it safe to run this app after the updates?

    Added one yesterday:
    Interestingly air 3.7 on IOS to Desktop air 3.7 will work.
    I am investigating if I can use 3.7 on Android to connect to 3.7 on iOS - so far I cannot get the apk to install on my Galaxy S3, compile using 3.4 and all is good. Air runtime has been updated via Play store - and build uses compiled runtime.
    I cannot get Flash player 11.4 to connect with air 3.7 on iOS either.
    NetGroup.Neighbour.Connect never fires.
    All SDKS above 3.4 upto 3.8 beta exhibit the same problem.
    3.4 works perfectly and can connect to flash player, and other Air/iOS devices just fine.
    Shuld not be a issue with firewalls etc, thay are all open.
    I can email you the fla, it is for a product so I can't post it here.

  • Flash Player and Windows 7

    OK.  I also have the issue with Flash Player seeming to download and install but not work.   I checked the activex addons and it shows up.  I can't find a directory anywhere even after changing the settings to show all.
    And if this is not annoying enough I have the same problem w shockwave.
    I realize that w W7  I'm missing something  but with all the reorganization I can't find things.
    Suggestions please.
    I did find in control panel a selection called default programs and under that a selection which is associate file extentions w programs
    I see that .swf is for shockwave flash player but it labeled as unknown app.  It appears that I can set that but first have to find the programs.    even after setting file options to show hidden files I could not find  either the shockwave or flash player
    Well I am not sure if I have progress or regression....  I deinstalled it all.  then reinstalled shockwave.  It said I needed to reboot to complete the install.  I let it....  no shockwave.  I went back out to the installation and tried again and it says I need to reboot to complete the install.  I've gone round this loop 4 times.   I checked in the registry for anything adobe and only found reader.
    I guessl neither shockwave nor flash player  is compatible w W 7  yet
    Message was edited by: AnnoyedInOH
    well after 3-4 reboots it says it's installed... again... but still does not work.  I found another thread here that said it should be under windows/system32/Macromed/ ...  something..   I don't have the directory Macro anything directory.
    Message was edited by: AnnoyedInOH

    First.  IE has entries for the flash player and shockwave.  The Java level I have is JAVA 6 update 14
    Second.  Both the flash player and shockwave are installed according to Programs and Features on the control panel.
    Third:  There is no Macromed directory under system23.  I did find one under:  c:\windows\SysWOW64.  The Macromed directory does have a Flash directory with 4 files.  Flash10d.ocx, FlashUtil10d.exe, an install log and uninstall_activeX.exe
    Fourth.  The control panel has a selection called: Default programs.  when I click on that I see a selection that allows me to associate a file type with a program.  In that list  .swf is not associated w anything.    Since .swf files are not associated w the flash player should I associate them with the flash player?
    I have no problem w updating Java to update 18.  I am reluctant to delete the older version though as I have encounterd programs in the past which won't run with newer ones.

  • Flash Player FLV SWF Confusion

    Fellow Forum Members,
    I"m using Acrobat 10. I have installed the latest Flash Player and Quicktime apps. I'm also using Adobe Media Encoder V4.
    The work flow I'm following is as follows:
    1. I'm using Adobe Media Encoder to convert MP4 to FLV format.
    2. In Acrobat 10 I encounter a problem when I try to import the FLV. Acrobat 10 only wants SWF. So if this is the case why doesn't the Adobe Media Encoder allow me to output in a SWF format?
    3. When I try to play the embedded FLV file from within Acrobat 10 an orange bar appears at the top informing me that I need to get the correct Flash Player.
    This is driving me crazy. I have the latest Flash Player installed and I don't understand why Acrobat 10 wants SWF and not FLV?  Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Thanks.   Looks like it's working now. However, now I have a problem relating to how do I invoke a video to appear with the player out of nothing upon pressing a button.   Please see my other thread. Thanks.

  • Macbook pro. app tries to use flash player and get " Blocked plugin" how to uninstall and reinstall flash player. update does nothing ?

    Wife has an older MacBook Pro. when an app uses flash player "Blocked plugin" comes up. I don't know much about mac, tried to update flash player and get newer version already installed, and update and still get same message. How do I uninstall flash player and reinstall?

    Sounds like it is blocked for the website you are at. Check with this:
    You can quickly test whether a recently added plug-in is causing problems by blocking it.
    Choose Safari > Preferences, click Security, then click Website Settings next to Allow Plug-ins.
    Select the plug-in you want to disable on the far left, then click each pop-up menu on the right and choose Block.For some plug-ins, you see pop-up menus for different websites, and you can choose to block each one individually. Use the “When visiting other websites” pop-up menu to block all other websites that don’t have individual settings.

  • Adobe Flash Player and Shockwave crashing has disabled my computer

    I have downloaded a second flash player and it is still the same. Firefox has been crashing daily for a few weeks. I noticed that your adblocker plus was updated 6/4. Since then I have almost no use of firefox, because the Adobe flash player 13.0.r0 and Shockwave crash notices are constantly popping up. Could that update have something to do with why the flash players are not working? Below are an example of the crash details.
    Thanks for the help. I prefer your browser, but this has made it non-functioning.
    In trying to fix it, a window came up that asked would I like to change it back to a previous working image, which was Windows XP. Although this computer is Windows 7, I clicked the box yes, and said I wanted it to work like Windows XP. I see in your Operating System below, that it reads Windows Xp, but this computer is actually Windows 7. I can't find that menu to change unclick and change it back, so that it is working as Windows 7.

    If that doesn't work try Try to disable Protected Mode in Flash 11.3 and above by adding the line ProtectedMode=0 to the Flash "mms.cfg" file located in one of these locations: [46]
    (Windows 32bit) C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash
    (Windows 64bit) C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash
    For example, on a Windows 7 64-bit system, open the C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash folder, copy the file "mms.cfg" to the desktop, open it in Notepad, add a new line <code>ProtectedMode=0 </code> and then close Notepad, saving your changes. Next, go back to the C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash folder, rename the original file to "mms.cfgBAK" (to save it as a backup) and then drag and drop in the modified "mms.cfg" file from the desktop. [47] [48] [49]
    Note: To re-enable Flash Protected Mode, either restore a backup of the original mms.cfg file, if you saved one, or else re-edit the mms.cfg file to remove the <code>ProtectedMode=0 l</code> line you added. Updating Flash Player or installing a newer version does not automatically re-enable Protected Mode
    Flash has been a pain since day 1 and Mozilla is currently working to replace Flash with Shumway. Unfortunately it's in the Nightly channel, doesn't come activated automatically and it isn't quite ready for normal usage. I just tested Nightly yesterday with Shumway and it wouldn't play.

  • Flash Player And adobe reader not working and downloads don't work

    I have IE 8 and windows vista and everything has worked great for 2 years until 2 or 3 weeks ago.  At that time my flash player stopped working so I could no longer get videos , streaming stock quotes, weather map loops, etc and when I go to websites that use Flash (i.e. Piaaz Hut) it wouldn't work.  Also, at that same time my adobe reader stopped working properly and I can't view mosy PDF Files.
    I have gone through many of the posts on this forum and have tried many of the fixes, but none have work for me.
    I tried to uninstall the Flash Player, but I didn't use the Adobe uninstaller.
    Whenever I try to update or load the Flash player, a dialog box with the globe tossing papers to the folder appears and then after a few seconds I get the the message that IE can't install_flash_player_ax.exe from fp download.adobe.com, and then a message that says IE was not able to open this internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found.
    In control panel programs I have listed
    Adobe AIR      no size
    Adobe Flash Player 10 active X           no size
    Adobe Reader 9.3     141mb
    Macromedia Shockwave player      no size
    In Tools i have the following add ons and they are all enabled
    Shockwave Flash object
    Adobe PDF Link Helper
    Adobe PDF Reader
    Macromedia Shockwave Active X Control 10.1
    As I said I've already attempted a number of the fixes on this forum, but so far no luck.
    Does anyone have any suggestions on what else I might try?

    Ok, I tried to download the firefox browser but IE wouldn't let me download it.  My friend downloaded it from their computer to a flash drive and I loaded it to my computer from the flash drive.  The download of Firefox from the flash drive worked, and now I'm using Firefox & both my adobe flash player and my adobe reader are working just great.
    However, neither the flash player nor the reader are working if I use IE, so I guess I will just have to use Firefox as my browser.
    I'm going to mark my question as answered since I really don't care that I have to use Firefox instead of IE,although I can't understand why it works using Firefox but not using IE.
    Thank you so much for your assistance in walking me step-by-step through this problem until I was able to reach a satisfactory solution.

  • HT2506 After updating my system to Mountain Lion 10.8.2 I can no longer view videos on Facebook or other sites. The only one I can view videos on is youtube. I have downloaded Adobe Flash player and still no luck. I cannot even open Preview on my computer

    After updating my system to Mountain Lion 10.8.2 I can no longer view videos on Facebook or other sites. The only one I can view videos on is youtube. I have downloaded Adobe Flash player and still no luck. I cannot even open Preview on my computer anymore. Any ideas would be helpful thanks

    Merely clicking the Preview icon in the Dock doesn't cause it to open anything, unless you had one or more windows open the last time it quit.
    If you're sure you've installed the latest version of Flash, take each of the following steps that you haven't already tried. After each step, relaunch Safari and test.
    1. If you're getting a "blocked plug-in" error, triple-click the line below to select it:
    /Library/Internet Plug-Ins Right-click or control-click the highlighted text and select
    Services ▹ Open
    from the contextual menu. A folder should open. If there is more than one item in the folder with the words "Flash Player" (not "flashplayer") in the name, open the respective Info windows, check the version numbers, and delete all except the latest. You may be prompted for your login password. If you get the same error after doing that, re-download and reinstall Flash. Download it from this page:
    Adobe - Install Adobe Flash Player
    Never download a Flash update from anywhere else.
    2. If you get a "missing plug-in" error, select
    Safari ▹ Preferences... ▹ Security
    from the Safari menu bar and check the box marked Enable plug-ins.
    3. Select
    Safari ▹ Preferences... ▹ Extensions
    from the Safari menu bar. If any extensions are installed, disable them.
    4. In the Safari preference window, select
    Privacy ▹ Remove All Website Data
    Close the window. Then select
     ▹ System Preferences… ▹ Flash Player ▹ Advanced
    and click Delete All. Close the preference pane.

  • On 12/23/11 I update the adobe flash player and have had problems since- unexpected closing and freezing. Remove the adobe flash player and those problems resolved. How do I go back to the earlier version of adobe?

    I was prompted by Firefox to update my adobe flash player on 12/23/11, which I did. Ever since then the web site has frozen and/or crashed. I run a internet business and can't have this continue. I uninstalled the flash player and the problems have stopped. I would like to reinstall the earlier version of adobe, since that didn't seem to impact the web site.

  • Windows 8.1 not recognizing Adobe Flash Player and Adobe help not helpful

    I have a new laptop with Windows 8.1 64 bit. I tried to view a video and it said I did not have flash player. I went to download adobe flash player and your website said I had it intergrated into 8.1 and that it was either disabled, not the right version or that active X filters needed to be clear. I followed all instructions. Flash was installed with the 8.1 64 bit version. Flash was enabled for all websites and I cleared the active X filter and I still get told that I don't have install flash because it is intergrated and but it does not work. Please help I am in a cycle where Adobe is not helping just sending me in a circle. Thank you

    Your problems aren't with Adobe or Flash Player. They're with Internet explorer 11 and Microsoft.
    IE11 (Windows 7, 8 & 8.1) has been an abomination since its release October 18, 2013. Yahoo, Facebook, BBC, ESPN and dozens of other sites and domains have had trouble recognizing the Browser. If the site doesn't recognize the browser, it won't recognize any plugins in the browser, including Flash Player. Microsoft was made aware of the problems by millions of users within hours of the release, and so far they've shown no sign that they intend to fix it anytime soon. Their recommendation is to enable Compatibility View for affected pages. Two problems with that are that it's had only limited success, and you must enable it manually for each affected page. Basically, they're telling you to "pretend" you're not using IE11.
    I'm not big on "pretending", and I recommend actually using something different. Something that works where IE11 won't.
    Firefox (from Mozilla)
    Chrome (from Google)
    Safari (from Apple)
    Opera (from Opera)
    ANY of those will work where IE isn't recognized, and they use the Flash Player Plug-in (for other browsers), except for Chrome, which has its own plugin embedded in by Google.

  • What's the Difference Between Flash Player and Shockwave?

    I was wondering what's the difference between Flash Player
    and Shockwave? And how do you know which one isn't working? I
    downloaded and installed Flash Player successfully but it did say
    that the plug ins might be in another file and may not work
    properly. There is one game that will work, but most everything
    else doesn't. I don't get pictures (like adverts, ect.) in my
    email. What is the problem?

    I have found this site helpful. Adobe has a "Test Adobe

    This password prompt is presented by your operating system, and is intended to keep you from accidentally installing software.
    If this is your personal machine and you don't need a password to log into the computer when it first starts up, you can probably leave the password blank and click OK to get past this prompt.  If this is your personal machine and your normal password isn't working, check to make sure that CAPS LOCK is off, and type the password carefully.
    If this is your work machine and it's asking for an Administrator password, well, you'll need to have a conversation with your friendly IT person.
