Updating shockwave

Rated 3.91/5 based on 761 customer reviews

I just verified on my mac OS system that I can now logon to a v Sphere Web (Flex) Client without issues.

- Adobe just published a new Flash update 27.0.0.183 which looks to resolve the original issue.

This newer Flash version is not even available for download and the current version as listed on Adobe's website should be 27.0.0.159.

On Saturday, I started to notice that logins to the v Sphere Web (Flex) Client stopped working with Google Chrome.

Upon a successful logon, it would immediately crash with "Shockwave Flash has crashed" message.

On my mac OS system, I was lucky that it still contained the previous version 27.0.0.159 and once I copied the Pepper Flash Player.plugin to 27.0.0.170 directory and restarted Flash, I was able to login to the v Sphere Web Client.

Although this is not ideal, at least for anyone who MUST use Chrome, there is somewhat of a workaround if you can find a previous copy of Flash.
