I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right forum, but I'll try anyway! If I'm in the wrong spot, feel free to kick me in the right direction....LOL.

Anyway! Lately I've been getting into games a lot more than I ever have before. But I've been noticing something --- I can't seem to download Macromedia Shockwave Player, which is needed for some of the games.

I don't know what the problem is. Whenever I click on a game that requires Shockwave, a window pops up that says "Macromedia Shockwave Player is now downloading".

But it doesn't. The window just stays there and stays there and stays there --- until finally I get an error message that says "Network error". But this has been going on for weeks.

I can't figure out how to fix this. Does anyone have any ideas?

Have you tried to download it directly from Macromedia's site?
Shockwave Player Download Center?

Thanks for the tip! I hadn't even thought of that, silly me. :thumbsup:

Anyway, I tried it and now I'm happily gaming away.

Merci!
