Adobe Flash / Shockwave Question


Is CD identifying the correct plugins being used? For example:- appears as Shockwave Flash appears as Shockwave for Director

Maybe this correct but thought I would check.


That is correct. Test it with another browser to see for yourself.

Hi EricJH

How do I test under a different browser? (say IE for example). Shouldn’t the first link be identified as “Adobe Flash Player”? I thought “Adobe Flash Player” and “Adobe Shockwave Player” were two different products.


They are two different players.

That is what I thought but CD is identifying Adobe Flash with “Shockwave Flash” plugin. See attached screenshot.

The naming is confusing. Flash Player is officially named Shockwave Flash Player. So it is from the same branch as Shockwave for Director but a different program. The Shockwave for director is often used in online games

:(I am trying to listen to pandora and play my farmville i keep getting shockwave player crashed. I have redownloaded shockwave player numerous times and I still keep getting crashes. I just installed comodo as my new web browser yesterday and I was impressed until now. Someone help or I will have to go back to slow ie8 browser.

Can you provide us with url’s so for testing?

Do you see Shockwave Player in the D+ logs? If so can you post a screenhot of the D+ logs? They are under Defense → Common Tasks -->View Defense + Alerts.
