I'm trying to download the Shockwave Plug-In on my daughter's computer, she has Windows98.

The download starts, but then I get a pop-up that says the download could not finish and to try again later.

I've been trying to download Shockwave for 3 days now.

Hi,

Are you running Internet Explorer, or Netscape Navigator? If you're using Navigator version 6 or less, it won't work.

If you're using Internet Explorer, try downloading it through this site, instead of macromedia.com (assuming that you're trying to download from Macromedia)

http://download.com.com/3000-2378-10279961.html?tag=lst-0-2

The installer is 4.4 MB, so if you're connection is dial-up, it may take a bit of time.

Hope this helps.

The current versions are:

Shockwave Flash - 7.0.19.0

Shockwave Player - 10.0.0.210

Make sure to turn off your antivirus program and firewall program(if you have one) before you start the install process.

Something else you might do before you start is to delete all the SWFLASH.OCX and FLASH.OCX files that are already present in your computer. You can bring up the list by going into Start - Find - Files And Folders.
