Fixed??! Using Adobe Flash Player 18.104.22.168
I think this issue may have been fixed. I have just installed Adobe Flash Player 22.214.171.124 direct from the Adobe website (so latest version). I've noticed that the last few updates have asked me to close Hector before they proceed. Anyway, went to the website just now, chose Run and the downloader/installer looked like it had failed, so i exited Hector and it sprang into life again and now Hector doesn't have a black box around him any more.
I suspect the msi installer that I have just got licensed to use may be falling over due to Hector running. I suppose that won't be an issue when I use it through GPO though, as it will install the msi before the user logs in and Hector starts up. Off to test...
Oh dear! Possibly still a problem here.
After thinking all was well, I discovered machines that won't run .swf files in the browser of logged in users. Some machines did though. Checked Flash versions using the test page on the Adobe website, and all the same version of Flash installed. Hector running fine. Found .swf will run as administrator on affected machines.
After tearing my hair out trying various things, I began to doubt the active directory/GP msi install had run properly. So I manually ran the msi on one machine, selected Remove from the installer, then closed Hector and manually ran the msi again. Installed fine. Logged out and back in as a user, and now the .swf files will run as the user. Tried this on several machines now, testing for the error then uninstalling and reinstalling manually. Fixed each time.
Have checked my setup for the msi install through GP and I have done it correctly. Not sure whether this issue is still being affected by Hector or not???
Have started another thread about GP install of latest Flash just in case it isn't Hector's fault this time:
