Nitro ~ How do I update Flash Player


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm looking for a way to update my Flash Player v.14, to Flash Player v.17...
( in Nitro v. Beta )

Is there a Script that works, or a manual way to do it.??

Nitro uses Google Chrome Flash Player, so i downloaded the new version
Adobe - Install a different version of Adobe Flash Player ( FP 17 Chromium - PPAPI )

named " pepflashplayer64_17_0_0_188.dll "

Copyed it from here " C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash "

Renamed it and put it here
" C:\Users\*User Name*\AppData\Roaming\mxnitro\\plugins\pepflashplayer.dll "

But the Flash test page, still shows I'm using version 14, and won't show any animation.
Flash Player Help and Test site :

It says "Plugin won't run"...

Have also tryed with deleting the dll, to force Nitro, to use the version I have system installed,
and not use the one bundled with the browser.

How can I make it Active.?? Or Enabled it.?? nitro://plugins/ ??
Hope some one can help...

OBS! Solution is this :
First get the right Flash Player Download here. Nitro uses the Google Chrome Flash Player.
Adobe Flash Player Install for all versions - Install a different version of Adobe Flash Player ( FP 17 Chromium - PPAPI )
If you need to update your Flash Player in Nitro, look here for the DLL file :
for a Win. 7 or Win.8.1, (64-bit) > C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash
for a Win. 7 or Win.8.1, (32-bit) > C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash
Look for this file NPSWF32_17_0_0_188.dll > rename it to pepflashplayer.dll
And put it in here > C:\Users\*user name*\AppData\Roaming\mxnitro\\plugins
To see and find the AppData Folder in your PC...
Open a Folder or Control-panel, for you need to set your Folder settings, to see all Hidden Folder and Hidden Files, also set it to Show Filenames,
(always set the PC to Show Filenames = it's the best security setting you can use)
Restart your Nitro Browser / PC... And test your updated Flash Player here :

Hope it helps a Bit or a Byte more...

Thanks to both of you, now it's working picture perfekt again... (^^,)

The NPSWF32.dll file did the trick...

( NPSWF32.dll file renamed to pepflashplayer.dll )

Thanks to for a good Link, with the correct file.

The one I needed was NPSWF32.dll , but as I have a 64 bit system,

this download link was the only way to get it.

Thanks to einherz also, for naming the correct file, to rename and use.

But as I use Win. 7 Ultimate-64 bit, i don't have a NPSWF32.dll in my SysWOW64 folder.

But a very good tip, to use and remember for me, so thanks for that tip too.

Best Regards Ohke,

and a Happy New Year to to All...

you will laugh, but i got same windows as you

adobe flash after install put 64.dll in system32/macromed, and 32.dll in syswow64/macromed

you can use only one dll file with nitro maxthon etc. but better install adobe flash for non ie browsers, becouse some time very rarely some sites wont open flash if this not installed in system, so my self always install adobe flash for ie and for not ie and after this update module
