Automatic update of Shockwave Flash 24.0 created conflict with Shockwave Flash 23.0 r0 r0 and creates constant errors for streaming audio.

When the attempt to load Slacker today 12/13 (day of the update) get the infamous "Shockwave Flash may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the plugin now, or you can continue to see if the plugin is complete. "error. So, I check the plugins, and of course, I have 2 versions of Flash, and one is new. I have try to disable one, and it seems to work, but not music. Then, I check to see if there is an update to the browser. Yes. Okay okay, we'll update the whole browser. Missing issue? Nope. Hmm. We will try to set the old version to 'request' and leave the new version still run. Refresh the Slacker, and he just ask and ask and ask, even when I set to "Save". Well, it does not. So let's turn it around - what is it? They are both set to 'ask '. Huh. Ok... Let's see if we can get rid of the old version of 23. I go to C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash and search for the 23 .dll file, and this is the only file there for her. Rename it to .old, back back, restart FF, reload Slacker, 23 has disappeared, no still no streaming. No popup, no lock, no music either. Looks like Slacker like not the 24 version does not work on it, but the update released most of the 23. As long as the 23 .dll file is in place, there is a conflict that causes a deadlock, so I can not just put 23 and run at the same time.

  • Update * it turns out that this issue has repercussions quite a few sites that I frequent, making it virtually unusable FF for me.


So apparently just rename the .dll for the 23 file and restarting FF was not enough. I had to rename and restart my system completely. As I said in my original post, the update to 24 deleted all other traces of 23, leaving only behind the .dll file. I'm not for unnecessary restarts when I have a stable system, and it is not uncommon for my system to go months without a reboot. That's why I really hate auto-updates to date, but these days some things up-to-date so ridiculously fast that I'm tired of things break because plugins have been disabled because they were obsolete.

Thanks for the reply and links to the uninstall program. That will probably save me some hair pulling in the future.

  • Disabling the automatic update of Shockwave

    I know that with flash, you can create a file mms.cfg under system32, c:\windows\system32\macromed, flash, but I wasn't sure of how to go about disabling the shockwave auto update feature without using the settings on the adobe Web site manager. Has anyone found any information on how to proceed for shockwave?

    Thanks in advance for everyone to help.

    Alrighty, I found it.

    After digging and ending up on the second page of a google search, I found a post on the embeddable forum under Macromedia Web players Adobe who seems showed me a very simple answer that does not even not worth looking for.

    I was puzzled at the fact that the registry under HKLM key was not affecting all features automatic update to Shockwave. In addition, manually turn off the automatic updates, the registry setting was not changed to "n". Curious.

    In any case, it turns out that the functionality is under:

    HKCU\Software\Adobe\Shockwave 11\AutoUpdate

    Change (default), "n".

    For security measure I also mirrored the same setting in:

    HKCU\Software\Macromedia\Shockwave 10\AutoUpdate

    Yes, installing Adobe Shockwave 11 place the entrance to file and register Shockwave 10 in your registry and c:\WINDOWS\System32\macromed\ database after it runs for the first time in a window of IE.

    Hope this helps others.

  • Uses the automatic update to the Flash Player security? It is installed in system preferences on my Mac


    One day I noticed that there is an icon on my MacBook Pro to Adobe Flash on the bottom of the system of preferences.  I have never seen this, and I had ben using Flash for a long time and be updated regularly.

    He recently told me that there is a newer version.  I have it did not install it because I have so many problems with the display of Flash video on Web sites.  I have a MacBook Pro, Mac OS X 10.6.8.  I use Safari 5.1.5 later, AFAIK.

    By using this automatic update for Flash (there are actually several tabs when I click on the Adobe not only the Update icon) in the Advanced tab of the Flash Player icon is there special things I need to do if I click Yes updated?  should I close all the windows, applications, Safari?  do a restart?  I'm debating if I should do a clean install, wipe all Flash Player on Mac and simply install the latest version rather then let update install the latest version, I think it's  I currently have with a bunch of graphical issues.

    Thanks for any help.

  • a kind of automatic update suddenly without warning started to close all the documents I was working on, rebooted and lost all the changes I had made in the past three hours

    I've worked hard for three hours in the middle of the night, made extremely dfficult work on several Word documents and Excel spreadsheets. at the same time - the kind of work that you can do if you're sure not not to be interrupted. All of a sudden a few (probably Windows) update began to close the files one by one, "don't turn off your computer" was the message.
    I waited. It restarts, but then I realized all of work my three hours had disappeared. The files are still there, but in their unchanged form. How is it you lose nothing if your battery runs out and you can restore the files, that you deliberately deleted, and there is a permanent record of each tiny websearch? However, Windows can come in the night and boldly to destroy three hours of irreplaceable forced labor without warning! I won't ever be able to replace it.

    Set the automatic update process so that you can control if the updates to download and install.

    And, as a general rule, always save files regularly while you work.

  • Automatic update never automatic updates!

    I have an automatic update for, well, automatic update.

    However, there is always a message saying that I need to download the new update, it opens a browser asks me to install McAfee, I said no, and then press to download, save a file, then run the file to update... How is this automatic update?

    Flash upgrades so often that it is boring. It defeats the whole purpose after pressing the automatic update.

    Is there any solution for this?

    (1) I went the Flash Player Settings Manager and it does not say "Allow Adobe install updates"

    (2) the mms.cfg file (found this on the net) says:

    SilentAutoUpdateEnable = 1

    AutoUpdateDisable = 0
