Running ME with latest updates of Adobe 6.0.1 and Flash Player but Shockwave won't work. All I get is the box in the upper left-hand corner. Any suggestions? I shows Shockwave 8 and Shockwave 10 downloaded. Do I need to/SHOULD I delete earlier versions of Adobe? Also have updated my Java to the most recent version and wondering if I should delete earlier versions.

By the way, I was having problems with IE and am now using Foxfire.

Sometimes if you have older versions installed it will confuse the browser. Especially if you are using Firefox. I think you have to make sure to get the proper ones FOR Firefox.

Are you talking about deleting Adobe 6.0.1 or Adobe Shockwave first? How many versions of Adobe do you have installed? I know some people have Adobe 5.0, 6.0 and 7.0 installed at the same time. I know 7.0 is for WinNT only.

When I've installed newer versions of Shockwave it automatically removes the older version at the same time. :thumbsup:
