Psi says under end of life programs that Adobe Shockwave Player 10x is end of life. Location is C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Shockwave 10\SwOnce.dll

I'm really confused because I have the latest version of Shockwave Player installed. Why did this pop up and what should I do with it?

The latest Shockwave version is 11.5.8.612.

SHOCKWAVE


Before starting to fix Adobe Shockwave do U really require it? Windows works perfectly without this programme which may have been pre installed on the PC at the time of purchase.

If not required just uninstall it completely. If you do have a requirement read on:

1. Uninstall Shockwave for your OS from the clearly marked link here:
http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/alternates...

2. Reboot to clear out any left over ocx files.

3. Rescan using PSI. Are there any outstanding files that are insecure? These should be cleared out before proceeding to serial 4.In your case this means all the files U have listed in the Shockwave folder

Note 1: At this stage,if PSI finds any elements of Shockwave in the C:\i386 folder or on any drive other than C that is an OEM reinstallation partition (normally D drive) or a drive U use solely to backup your work U can safely create an ignore rule.

Note 2: The path on the C Drive to any remaining insecurity is important. Does it point to the Shockwave Player or another Adobe product that has a Flash element? If it points to Shockwave right click on the file(s) & delete them. If it points elsewhere reinstalling Shockwave will not necessarily clear the problem.

4. Reinstall Shockwave from here:
http://get.adobe.com/shockwave/

5. If you wish to test your new Shockwave Player the link is here:

I uninstalled, rebooted. I rescanned that item under End-of-Life and it said the program no longer appears to be installed on my system. So I will go now and install it and I assume I will be OK.

I have a paid subscription to Shockwave.com and I'm sure I do need this program for those games.

Thanks!

p.s. I sent you an email with regard to this situation of not being able to use the Download Solution option in psi.
