Tried to post this on another forum days ago, but we never got a response. (Maybe we posted on the wrong forum.)

We have a screensaver that we've had for years. All of a sudden, I am getting this message,

"Could not find the Macromedia Flash."

I went to the Marcromedia Flash website, and it says the latest version is installed.

Can anyone point us in the right direction? Thank you!

The usual fix for flash player is to uninstall ALL versions and install the latest. You can uninstall the Macromedia flash player(s)
through the Add/Remove program.
To uninstall the Adobe Flashplayer (which bought out Macromedia Flashplayer) you will need to use the special uninstaller in the link below.

Whether this will fix the problem with screensaver---I don't know.

Note: The uninstaller cannot remove files currently in use.

If you have any instances of the player open in your web browsers, instant messaging clients, stand-alone SWFs, or projectors, then the uninstaller will complete but some files may not be deleted. If this occurs, then close all of your applications and run the uninstaller again to ensure that all files are removed.

Thanks! I'm not getting the message anymore. Now, we have a new problem!
