..installing the newest 1.4.2 Java and Windows Script Engine.
First, if you have Sun's 1.5 Java, you'll need to uninstall it AFTER getting the newest 1.4.2 Java from the link below:
Click on the link to Sun's Java below, then click on the "Download Windows J2SE JRE" download link that is in the "J2SE v 1.4.2_09 JRE includes the JVM technology" section. Download the full "Windows Offline Installation" file to your desktop,(about 15 MB), scan it with your antivirus (just to be sure it's clean), then uninstall Java 1.5 from the Control Panel, then shut down all background programs, including your antivirus, then run the installer.
AFter that, download and install the updated Script engine from the appropriate link below:
Windows Script 5.6 for Windows 2000 and XP
At the link above, you'll need to validate your version of XP which isn't a problem as long as its legal.
After everything is installed, then open the Control Panel, double click on the "Internet Options" icon, then click on the "Advanced" tab. When that loads, scroll down to the "Java(Sun)" section and make sure there is a CHECK mark next to: "Use Java,....". Click on Apply. Then scroll to the "Multimedia" section and place a CHECK mark in the "Play Sounds In Web Pages", "Play videos in Web Pages", & "Show pictures" box and UNCHECK the box next to "Show download Placeholders:", then click on Apply, then Ok.
Hope this helps.
First of all let me start by saying, I have clicked on the speaker icon and it is turned up.
Okay now that we have that out of the way...I have recently noticed that flash videos/games in all my browsers won't play any sound. I have tried it in IE/Firefox/Opera and in all of those I have had no luck. WMV/MOV files play just like they are supposed to. The only files that have been a problem are the SWF files.
Next let me say that MSN Messenger might also be affected by the same problem as it will not play my alert sounds like it is supposed to. I have uninstalled/reinstalled everything from Macromedia Flash Player to the browsers themselves, but alas nothing makes a difference.
I am running Windows XP Home SP2, Messenger 7.5, IE 6.0.2900.2180, Mozilla Firefox 1.0.6.
If anyone knows what I should do could you please help me. I have no idea what to do.
