I hope Adobe corrects this problem in a prompt manner. Thank god YoWindow is not as critical as some software applications might be. In my opinion this should be a top priority for Adobe. You have a lot of happy customers. The problem is definitely a bug in Adobe Flash Player software. If not, Adobe has poor quality control when it comes to warning their customers about major code changes that cause applications failure. I think the Adobe technician responding to your post should be reprimanded for warning the software application developer to use other software or strategies in concern of syntax errors which are clearly their fault. They should only be concerned with solving the problem they created. Such changes to software should be sent to developers in advance of a new software release that might effect thousands of users. Oh Well! Your application is great and know that I am one hundred percent behind your statements to Adobe. Hope this problem is resolved quickly.

Thanks!

One basic question. Is possible to separate Flash Player so to affect the YoWindow, only (added to application). Other words to have two Flash Players ActiveX, i.e. previous and last versions. Maybe Adobe Flash Player Plugin NPAPI will be good for YoWindow.

Adobe has fixed the problem in the next BETA version of Flash Player.
Unfortunately, I don't know when they are going to release the update.

However, you can workaround the problem by installing the Flash Player BETA.
Here's how.
1. Uninstall the current Flash Player for Internet Explorer.
Download Flash Player uninstaller.
https://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/l ... player.exe
And run it.

2. Download Flash Player BETA for Internet Explorer.
https://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/l ... yer_ax.exe
And install it.

YoWindow should work just fine.

Marek, there are a number of routes we can go.
1. Adobe AIR.
2. Adobe Flash Player Plugin NPAPI.
3. HTML5.
4. Unity.

I need to investigate the pros and cons.
The worst of it all - I need/want to work on new features instead of fighting the technology :(

Hi friends:
I have just performed the Pasha's recommendations i.e. uninstalled the last version of Flash Player (20.0.0.267) and installed beta version (20.0.0.255) and after that all is good :D By the way, other applications using Flash Player Active X also run successfully. I was sure Pasha would do something to run YoWindow before New Year. Now we can relax and :beer: Many thanks and Happy New Year.

The work around does not work in Windows 10.
We do not have the option of using the Beta versions.

Its not safe to not update the Flash Player.

I guess I should just move on then & find another program, because it will be at least a month before this might work again.

Adobe just tried to push (force) the update on my iMac...

My firewall luckily respectfully declined the invitation... :Yahoo!:

Still on 20.0.0.235... and everything is peachy...
