Installing Adobe Macromedia Shockwave to Work for Mozilla Firefox

For a clean installation it will be necessary to uninstall the Macromedia Shockwave Player program on your computer, re-install Shockwave Player, install the Shockwave initializing file for Firefox, then check whether shockplayer works.


UNINSTALLING THE EXISTING SHOCKWAVE PLAYER ON YOUR COMPUTER

Close Internet Explorer and all other programs except Audio manager and Color for screen.
Copy this file and run it:

http://tysaustralia.com/Macromedia_Shockwave_Uninstaller.exe

Run a Registry Editor program to remove old registry settings.


Reboot your computer.



INSTALLING MACROMEDIA SHOCKWAVE

Download the file "Shockwave_Installer_Full.exe" by going to this URL:

http://www.download3k.com/DownloadLink1-Macromedia-Shockwave-Player.html

Run and install.



INSTALLING THE SHOCKWAVE "INITIALIZE" FILE FOR FIREFOX

Macromedia Shockwave will work in Mozilla Firefox if you enter this URL:

http://tysaustralia.com/Authorware_Web_Player_Plugin.exe

Then download and install the file.



TEST WHETHER SHOCKWAVE WORKS IN FIREFOX

Do not go to,

http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/welcome/

to test your Macromedia Authorware Web Player installation. This test site does not work properly and will show that shockwave is not working when it could be.

Enter this URL into Internet Explorer:

http://www.adobe.com/products/shockwaveplayer/gokart/

A yellow band may appear at the top of the webpage asking if you want to install Macromedia Authorware Web Player. If this happens, click this band and follow the instructions.When you have completed the Authorware Web Player installation again the game will load to show that Adobe Macromedia Shockwave is working.


You will find Shockwave is already working in Chrome, but not in IE, however.
Go to "Installing Adobe Macromedia Shockwave Player to Work for Internet Explorer"
