Where do I download the Adobe Flash Player 13.x (NPAPI) patch? I am running Vista 32 bit

The latest version on my computer is listed as:
M:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\NPSWF32_13_0_0_ 206.dll
Installed version 13.0.0.0.206 (NPAPI)

I went to the Adobe Flash Player website, and downloaded the latest version of Flash Player. Re-scanned my computer and still show the same results. If this is the latest version, what am I trying to download?
Thanks
Dave

Dave,
What are you using the M drive for? Is it a backup?

My M:\ drive is my primary drive on a dual boot. My C:\ drive is Vista HP. M:\ is Vista Ultimate, so I use my M:\ drive almost exclusively

Thank you.
Have you looked in Windows Explorer to see if M:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\NPSWF32_13_0_0_ 206.dll is a left behind file that was not correctly removed during the update to 13.0.0.214 ?

NPSWF32_13_0_0_206.dll is, in fact, present. There is no NPSWF32_13_0_0_214.dll in Flash folder.

I tried downloading from that site. It re-downloaded ver. 13.0.0.214. NPSWF32_13_0_0_206.dll is still present. There is no NPSWF32_13_0_0_214.dll in the Flash folder. It would appear the rest of 13.0.0.214 for Flash Player installed properly, but not that file.

I am still at a loss for what to try next.
Thanks
Dave

Dave,
Bit lost as well. Sadly I have not got a dual boot PC to test anything on. If no other help is offered may be worth contacting Secunia Support.at support@secunia.com

What browser do you use for the download?
Unless you use Firefox, you need to specify the Operating System and other browser Flash Player on the download page.

ddmarshall

The operating system used on that partition is Vista Ultimate 32 bit
I have tried to download the updates on both IE9 and Chrome.
In each instance, version 13.0.0.214 downloads and installs, but the NPSWF32_13_0_0_214.dll file continues to be missing. As stated previously, the NPSWF32_13_0_0_206 is there from the previous version.

The point I was trying to make is that there are two different downloads for Flash Player - the Internet Explorer ActiveX and the Netscape Plugin. These show up as two separate entries in the Control Panel.

If you use Internet Explorer to do the download, the ActiveX will be installed unless you click on 'Need Flash Player for a different computer?' and select Flash Player for other browsers.

Chrome does not need a Flash Player download as it is included and updated automatically. You only need the Plugin if you are using another browser such as Firefox.

If you are downloading the Plugin installer, the only explanation I have is that there is a bug when using a system drive letter other than C:.


Try the link to the plugin installer at the end of this page.

Bingo!!
I checked the add-ons for each of the browsers I have installed. They include IE, Chrome and Firefox, although I rarely use Firefox anymore. As it turns out, the offending browser was Firefox. I updated the plug-in for Shockwave in Firefox, and the new file is now there, all updated and re-scanned with PSI.

My only question now is, Shockwave now shows both versions of the NPSWF32 files in Real player. Version ending in .206 and .214. Can/should I delete the older version, or leave well enough alone?
Thanks

I've not had any dealings with Realplayer for a long time.

It probably won't do any harm leaving to old version there. Maybe someone who uses Realplayer can comment.

Options are as ddmarshall has said.

But you do have another option: rename your insecure file so as to inactivate it; so as to keep it from running. Suggested format would be to rename NPSWF32_13_0_0_206.dll to NPSWF32_13_0_0_206.dll.old. (without the bold font.)

That way, you do not have to delete it, and can always restore it by removing the .old file extension if there are any issues after renaming it.

Trick from the old DOS days, should work for you.
