That link lead to macromedia.com/getplayer or something along those lines. On that page there was another link to check which version of flash I had installed. I did indeed have an older version installed which was still part of the version 9 family tree but older... Anyways I went ahead and installed the new version and that was that. I was now able to view all the music players on myspace and go about my day.
But I later checked my add/remove programs window to find that there were two references to adobe flash 9 listed as you can see here:
The reference to "flash 9 active x" was listed there prior to me installing the new version of the plug in. So I'm wondering why in the world would I now have two references to the flash 9 listed there??? If I was just updating to a newer version why would I have two types of software referring to flash 9 listed in my add/remove programs list instead of just one like it was prior to me installing the new version of flash 9? Now I'm a bit pc savvy but don't know anything about internet browser plug ins. Does the item referring to flash 9 active x do something totally different than the item referring to flash player plug in? & if I don't need one please tell me what to do.
I'm guessing I went ahead with the flash upgrade without doing it properly. [ie: uninstalling other things first]. Although the upgrade installer did show details that certain items were removed about flash on my pc prior to it installing the newer version, so I believe it did all of that for me. The thing is I remember that flash used to be owed by macromedia no? & now it's owned by adobe... Or the other way around. So I have no clue if I installed the new version of the web browser plug in right or have two different installs. [ie: one from the previous flash company and one from the new].
