I've installed both Shockwave_Installer_Slim.exe and
install_flash_player.exe from the Adobe site. No luck, CNN (and every
other flash page I've tried) still tells me I need to install the plugin.
Don't know what else to tell you. In the past, I've solved this by
reinstalling both, but I remember thinking it was a problem with their
sniffers, because a perfectly normal installation would suddenly start
getting rejected for no good reason.
At the moment, my browser (SM 1.1.16) is at a CNN video page, and I have
a big black rectangle with "Loading..." beneath it, no complaint about
my Flash plugin. But it sure is taking an awful damn long time to load
(more than 10 minutes with a broadband connection).
Adobe has a test page here:
(nothing I can find for Shockwave)
And troubleshooting pages here:
