Flash 9 Issue

Thursday, December 7th, 2006

I found an interesting problem with Flash 9 in Windows XP.  I installed Flash as a local admin, then rebooted the computer.  The user attempted to access some Flash file, but still had an older version installed.  I went to the Adobe website and to their online test system that shows which version of Flash and Shockwave are installed.  This showed the computer still had the previous version installed.

The solution is to clear the cache for the users account.  After I did that, everything worked perfectly. So much for Adobes test site!
