New Flash Player 6,0,79,0

Just in case you haven't read it everywhere else: Macromedia just released version 6,0,79,0 of the Flash Player. It contains once again some security patches for the infamous "buffer overflow exploit", improves Flash Communication Server preformance and fixes some other minor bugs.

Download it here. Read the release notes.

You find the old versions of the Flash player on this page:

But it looks like they didn't put the v6 player there yet.

Very interested in the Flash Player Switcher as I do usability testing and QC at work and usually newer versions of Flash Player install over previous installations. However, lately we have come up with a problem that if a user has Flash 5 installed and they install v.6 neither player works until v.5 is removed. With v.7 the download will not install when v.6 is installed.

Is there a reasonable/rational explanation for this but more importantly a solution?

We design for v.6 but cannot guarantee that our users will be able to sort out version errors and therefore need to stipulate some kind of guideline/troubleshooting for installations.

Can you help?

I too need Flash Version 6 my Madden 2004 has version 6 as part of it's installation CD and is needed in order to play online. the copy on my CD however, will not install. It calls for Flash 6,0,79,0 which I guess is version 6. Will version 7 also work with madden 2004?

Thanks. Jim

Flash Plugins are always backwards compatible. So you shouldn't have any problems with installing V7.
