Flash in IE reinstalling itself against my will



  • 1. Control flash file loading
    I've seen many flash file on the web that show the process of loading itself when it open the first time. I also make many flash files for my website and some files really big. When those files loading, it is better if everyone know how many percent of byte a flash file loaded. So anyone can help me. I really need it. Thank in advanced!
  • 2. Missing Control Buttons
    Hello, I've been trying to watch the Flash tutorial videos on the Sketchup.com site, but they take a long time to load. So I downloaded the first zipped file in order to watch offline later, with the intention of downloading the whole library over time. When running the unzipped file in both IE and Firefox offline, the picture fills the browser window (vertically) and the control buttons that normally appear when viewed as a "stream" e.g. Play/Pause, Progress Scroll Bar, etc. are missing. I've looked through the menus of both browsers, but can't find any settings to change that might make them re-appear. The films play fine, complete with audio, but it would be more than handy to repeatedly replay sections of the tutorials without having to sit through the whole thing. Any suggestions please? I downloaded the current flash player today. Many thanks, F.E.Z.
  • 3. firefox & safari swLiveConnect Problem
    I'm trying to dynamically resize the flash movie by sending stage height to javascript. It works fine in IE6 but only works occasionally in firefox and safari (i.e. if I press reload numerous times it finally works). Code: function setFlashHeight(myHeight){ document.myFlash.style.height=myHeight+"px"; } Is this a security issue with the player? I have swLiveConnect set to true in embed tag.
  • 4. Registry Key for Player Version?
    Is there a Windows registry key that can be referenced to determine which version of the Player is installed? Or can I check the version number of the 'swflash.ini' file. This is for an MSI package. Thanks!

Flash in IE reinstalling itself against my will

Postby Atreju » Sat, 07 Oct 2006 05:07:02 GMT

I have a client who has a very slow computer. To keep his web browsing
running smoothly, he wants Flash player GONE. However, no matter how
many times we 'uninstall' it, it is putting itself back in, without
his consent.

Is there any way to guarantee that it will not reinstall itself,
regardless of web site content, unless it asks his permission first?

Thanks for any suggestions you may have.

1.How to get flash to dynamically resize itself as IE window expands/contracts

I've seen some flash sites that size themselves in relation to the size of
the IE window.  As the IE window size alters, the flash dymanically resizes
itself so that its always visible.  Can someone tell me how this is achieved
and where can I get the code from to do this?

3.IE7 already installed then reinstalled itself as critical update-n


I installed IE7 prior to it being a critical update, from microsoft 
downloads page, and it worked great, smooth quick etc.

However a few days later when it was released as a critical update, it 
reinstalled itself and then the whole system crashed. If ie opened it was a 
mixture of ie6 and ie7. 

You could not select "open new tab" for example but the back button looked 
like ie7. It would crash after a few minutes.

I removed it in the end and reinstalled it, outlook express then failed to 
open and there was no browsing available.

Eventually after removing it again and reinstalling it worked for a while 
but then started to crash and now it will not allow you to select "open new 
tab" again!!

Any ideas as it is a pain???

5.Flash 8 : IE Browsers suddenly shut down when Flash Games (Flash Object) is in use

Hi All-

 Encountering strange issues while playing Flash Games that I'm working on.  
While playing the game, the IE Window may completely shut-down;  No Dr.Watson, 
no, "report this to microsoft";  Just a complete failure of the IE Browser.

 The Games are Flash based;  (Build in Flash8, but exported to work with 
Flash7) using ActionScript1.0.  There is no definitive repro scenario;  The 
game may work fine for hours, but then the next time, the entire IE window may 
suddenly shut down.

 Baseline environments are :
 WinXP SP2;  Flash 8,0,22,0; IE 6.01;  Latest MS Security patches installed.

 Noticed today there was a security release for 8,0,24,0;  I could not find 
much details into what was specifically fixed, but was wondering if anything 
that might cause a complete shutdown of IE was addressed/known about with 
Flash8,0,22,0, and fixed with the latest release.
