    Adobe Flash and Maxthon


    7twenty

    Maxthon comes with a version of Adobe Flash to ensure the browser is able to play all Flash content upon installation, although this version isn't always the most recent. This is to ensure that any issues related to new releases of Flash don't cause issues with Maxthon. You can force Maxthon to use the most current version of Flash by following the instructions below.


    The most recent version of Adobe Flash is available from here: http://get.adobe.com/flash

    The "Allow all sites to run plug-ins" option must be enabled in Settings > Advanced.

    The MX Flash Updater is recommended to check and update your system and Maxthon Flash version.

    An auto-updater tool has also been created by Truuuc which automates the flash install procedures below along with some extra options for languages and other plugins..


    If you have any issues with the above, please follow the descriptions linked below.

    For Maxthon 4.9.x and later follow the instructions in this post.

    For Maxthon 4.4.x and earlier follow the instructions in this post.

    NOTE: The information below is for Maxthon 4.9.x & 5.x releases.
    For Maxthon 4.4.x and earlier releases see this post.


    Update to the most recent version of Flash from here: http://get.adobe.com/flash

    The page will show that it has detected Chrome. If not, check that the default user agent is in use.

    Click "Do you have a different operating system or browser?"

    Select your Operating System from the dropdown menu.

    Select "FP for Opera and Chromium - PPAPI" to install the correct version for Maxthon to use.

    Press the download button on the right and let the installer run.

    Close Maxthon.

    Open an Explorer window (Win+E) and go to the folder you installed Maxthon to, then navigate to the folder:
    For MX5: \Core\plugins
    For MX4.9: \Core\Blink\plugins

    NOTE: Default install folders are:
    For 32bit OS - C:\Program Files\Maxthon
    For 64bit OS C:\Program Files (x86)\Maxthon

    In this folder there should be a file called pepflashplayer.dll. Rename (eg. append .org to the filename) or delete this file only. Renaming is the recommended option.

    Copy pepflashplayer32_XX_X_X_XXX.dll from the windows folder to the Maxthon \Core\Blink\plugins folder, and rename it to pepflashplayer.dll.

    The file is found in the following locations:
    For 64bit OS - C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash
    For 32bit OS - C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash

    Restart Maxthon & goto http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/

    The page should show the current version installed and the most recent version available, both of which should match.

    Maxthon is now using the current version of Flash.

    If everything was done correctly you should have something similar to the following image, and a plugins folder as below.

    Close Maxthon.

    Open up an Explorer window (Win+E) and go to the folder you installed Maxthon to then navigate to the Core\Webkit\Npplugins folder.

    NOTE: Default install folders are:
    For 32bit OS - C:\Program Files\Maxthon
    For 64bit OS C:\Program Files (x86)\Maxthon

    In this folder there should be a file called NPSWF32_XX_X_X_XXX.dll (the X's are the flash version). Rename (eg. append .org to the filename) or delete this file only. Renaming is the recommended option.

    Restart Maxthon & goto http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/

    The page should show the current version installed and the most recent version available, both of which should match.

    Should the above not work, you can try copying the NPSWF32_XX_X_X_XXX.dll file from C:\Windows\Syswow64\Macromed\Flash (for 64-bit) orC:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash (for 32-bit) and paste it into Core\Webkit\Npplugins.
