Hi, I am trying to update Flash Player, and apparently, Windows 2000 will not accept Flash Player 11. I found this "wrapper" to enable this process, and I was wondering if anyone could answer two questions: Does it work? and Can anyone explain to me, step-by-step, how to perform these functions? (I have never worked with a registry before.)

Download the wrapper package http://oldcigaret.info/win2k/files/...

Unzip the zip file to a directory, for example C:\w2k-wrapper

Run the bat file “INSTALL_WRAPPER.BAT” in the directory C:\w2k-wrapper\install\

Restart your computer in order to register the DLL’s

Move the downloaded flash player update file “install_flash_player_32bit.exe” to C:\w2k-wrapper\bin\

Now you may start the update by doubleclick on the exe-file

I'm having same prob. Been following your thread and was hoping that someone would answer you. Have you tried this and if so, is it working? I'm resurrecting a w2k 32 bit sys for sis'. Writing to you now on it, but their reason for the machine is to play online card games...some of the sites that they want to go to require flash. I have installed flash only to have sys crash. was wondering also, if you've tried the 10_1r102_64 FP package. One crash and recovery is enough for me as there is NO OS disks to recover with, LOL, this sys only has so many lives, don't want to use the last one up yet if I can avoid it.

Thanks for the reply.
I have not tried the wrapper, because I do not know how to install to a directory (or anywhere else). I do not even know what a directory is.
Flash 10.1 did not work for me. I kept getting "setdirectory.dll" was not found in the dynamic link library". Right now, I have Flash 9 installed. At the Adobe site, the test says my Flash player is working. Not at Youtube, it isn't...
I hate Windows XP (resource hog, lots of unnecessary stuff for people who just surf and word-process, cartoony), but I plan on making the upgrade. Looks like industry wins again.

I just replied to the other thread you posted on: http://www.computing.net/answers/windows-2000/youtube-videos-black-screen/66345.html

Flash 11 requires SSE2 instruction and will not work on a Pentium III/Celeron. You need at least a Pentium 4 processor.
