Archived Flash Players for Testing Purposes

If you are setting up Flash detection, you’ll probably want to run some tests to make sure that it’s working. This means that you need to test for the lack of a plug-in/ActiveX control, and you need to have access to older versions of the Player. Fortunately, Macromedia makes getting older copies of the Player easy. All you have to do is browse to www.macromedia.com/support/flash/ts/documents/oldplayers.htm.

That’s the good news. The bad news is that you have to have multiple browsers with multiple Players installed, or you have to uninstall one Player and install another for testing. Uninstalling the Player for Netscape for both Windows and Macintosh and for IE on the Macintosh is a simple process because the Player is implemented as a plug-in. This means that you have to move or remove just one file. The next exercise walks you through the uninstall process for the plug-n.
