Hi Pasha,

Microsoft update KB3132372 is what caused me to have a black screen on my Win8.1 and Win10.
That update was just installed on Wednesday.
Before the update, I had 20.0.0.228 and everything was good.
Now I have the bad flash player and cannot do anything with the Desktop.

I have YoWindow for Chrome on my Win10 and it is working good.
I can look at the Widget in both Win8.1 and Win10.
The Widget is working good.

So until this is resolved the only way for me to test the Desktop is WinXP.

Hopefully Adobe has the new flash player to the public soon.

:(
Marty

I had my windows 10 update, and after the update, I had a black screen when i opened Yowindow. When I right clicked on it, it said "movie not loaded" and "about Adobe Flashplayer". I saw the post on the main page which said to install update KB3132372 to fix this bug, and when i checked i saw that it was already installed on my system yesterday when Yowindow stopped working. What i did was to uninstall this update, and Yowindow is now working correctly again. I dont know if this will work for everyone but it worked for me.

Hi Pasha,

I did the same thing that Rose just suggested.
Thank you Rose.

I uninstalled Microsoft update KB3132372 on both my Win8.1 and Win10.
The flash player is back to 20.0.0.228.
YoWindow Desktop is running again!

Now just to wait on Adobe to publish their corrected (beta version) to the public.

:)

Original fix has been edited accordingly...

For some Windows 10 the problem will reoccur because
of the MS updates which install automatically upon reboot...

I refer to the link below for a temporary fix...

I give up. Uninstalling KB3132372 works, but as someone else said, it keeps reinstalling when updates are installed. The workarounds dont work for me. I'm going to stop using Yowindow until Adobe fix their useless latest version of Flashplayer. Very annoyed as i have the paid version of Yowindow too.
