    Unable to Install Adobe Shockwave


    I came back to Neopets recently and I realized I didn't have Shockwave, which is used for many of their games, on this computer, so I've been desperately trying to install Shockwave through different browsers, but--

    When I use a browser where it gives me an exe to open myself, my computer spits out this:


    Unable to Install Adobe Shockwave 8bcb0c8a-589d-4d43-9391-617f8424408c?upload=true.png


    and on IE it acts like it's installing on the page but nothing happens!


    I'm kind of desperate to play these games again.


    Does it have anything to do with my username on my computer being an emoji? There are some other things that I can't install or open. Should I throw in the towel and try using a VM?

    :)

  2. Adobe Shockwave/ Adobe Flash Player :Windows 10

    Adobe Shockwave/ Adobe Flash Player :Windows 10

    This April I purchased the following noitebook computer: HP Envy M7- N109DX Notebook.

    I understand this computer is good for gaming, although I haven't used it much for gaming.

    The Adobe Shockwave Player 12 , version 12.1.7.157 is listed in the Progams section of the Control panel and I understand from some reading I've done that you don't need both the Adobe Flash Player and Shockwave player as the Shockwave is used more for gaming
    computers. However, I noticed I have been getting Windows security updates for the Adobe Flash Player, which is not installed on my computer but no security updates for the Adobe Shock wave player.

    Also I've been getting every so often here lately popup requests to update the Flash Player which I don't have. With one of these popups a warning came on that this was a malicious site and not to update. I don't believe this was from My Norton Internet
    Security as it wasn't so marked and it didn't popup in the right corner of my taskbar as Norton warnings do but filled the whole page. Maybe it was from Microsoft but I Xed out the warning quickly so I'm not sure where the warning came from.

    My question : Should I be getting updates for Shockwave Player, and am I right to ignore the Adobe Flash player updates that seem legitimate. Also why am I not getting updates for the Adobe Shockwave Player or do I have the latest ?

    Holly

    PS: I just noticed that in Advanced Settings on Edge I have Adobe Flash Player enabled but it's not listed in Programs on Control Panel.

    PS 2: I have done the test for Adobe Flash Player and Adobe Shockwave and have discovered that Flash Player is preinstalled with Internet Explorer in Windows 10 and updates automatically. It sort of reminds me of Google Chrome. I got from the Adobe Shockwave
    test that it is not working, although it's listed in Programs on Control Panel. I also found out that Adobe Flash Player and Shockwave come together on Windows 10.

    I think I won't worry about it as I'm not much of a gamer and found out games I play work fine.

    Unable to Install Adobe Shockwave

    Adobe Shockwave/ Adobe Flash Player :Windows 10

    I've since found out that Flash Player is pre-installed with Internet Explorer in Windows 10 and updates automatically so I know not to download any Flash Player updates. I've been getting those update download messages mostly when I first go on the internet,
    not from any particular website. Adobe Shockwave is listed in my programs in the control panel, but when I did the test it said it was either not installed (which it is) or not enabled. On Manage Add-ons in IE 11 something called Shockwave Flash Object Published
    by Microsoft Windows Thir.... is enabled. However, when I went to Adobe Shockwave website and did the test it showed Adobe Shockwave wasn't working.

    I didn't get this computer for the gaming feature but for other reasons. I have tried some games from AOL and these work, but I'm not sure what other games I should try as I believe years ago I played AOL games without Shockwave Player.
