Everyone hates the administrator. FACT. They block the best sites, and stop you from installing loads of ace stuff on your boring old work computer.
So when I installed the brand new Google Chrome on my work PC (for some reason I can, although loads of other executable files are disallowed) I, a humble internet user, went straight to Youtube to test out loading times etc.
However, Flash needs to be upgraded, and I get a nasty little message telling me I need the latest player.
When I download the file in the link, I get a similarly nasty warning from my PC that I am not allowed to install ‘executables’ like flash player. So no Youtube, no A.viary applications, or anything remotely flash related (seemingly 84% of all online content…)
Here’s how you get round that. Cue evil laugh.
2. Then rename it to .zip. It’s a special archive file of only the plug-in bit of the flash player app from adobe that interacts with your browser.
3. Extract it with Winzip to a place you’ll remember. (I did it to My docs but it can go anywhere.)
4. Grab the flashplayer.xpt and NPSWF32.dll files. Copy them (Right click, copy)
5. Head to C/Documents and settings/”YOUR USER NAME”/Local Settings/Application Data/Google/Chrome/Application/Plugins/ and copy your files in there.
6. Close and restart Chrome
8. I also put the files in this location to cover my bases but I think its unnecessary:
C/Documents and settings/”YOUR USER NAME”/Local Settings/Application Data/Google/Chrome/Application/”File with a load of numbers instead of a title”/Resources/
You’re welcome Internet. After all you’ve done for me.
PS: LOL you got rickrolled.
