Solution to Flash Uploader Not Working Problem

If you are using WordPress or any application working on Flash to upload the files and images then you might have encountered this strange problem one day or the other. Flash Uploader is a great utility that enables us to upload any no. of files conveniently in one go. No doubt the Flash Uploader is far better than the Browser Uploader in which we have to manually upload each file each time.

What happens in this problem is that when we click on the “Flash Uploader” button, it does nothing and then we have to revert to the Browser Uploader. This problem has left me wondering as once I used to use the Flash Uploader and now, suddenly, it has stopped working.

So if you are also facing this problem, here goes the cause and the solution of the problem.


This strange problem is caused solely because of the new Adobe Flash Player version 10. Currently the Flash Uploader is not working on the Flash Player 10, so if you have also installed the latest Adobe Flash Player 10, this is the only reason why you are facing this problem.


Since the problem is caused by the latest Adobe Flash Player 10, we need to uninstall it from the system and install the earlier version 9. Due to recent enhancements to the Adobe Flash Player installers, you can now remove the player only by using the Adobe Flash Player uninstaller.

So you just need to download the uninstaller from here and run the utility.
