Question I got a question about flash or java...

I go to websites like this (fetchfido.com) and I can't do a lot of stuff on that website. I think its because I don't have a very good flash or java program.

does anyone know where I can download a flash or java thing so I can use this website?

Please help!

If you dont have one, it should open up a link for you to download one, though heres the link for the shockwave (flash) player that will work in all types of browsers:

http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/...ShockwaveFlash

The Java takes a while to download on slow connections so I warn you, but it allows you to run some stuff I've needed in the past week or so:

http://www.java.com/en/download/windows_automatic.jsp

This ones an auto install and will check if you need to download it, and if need be, download it.

I hope this helps

No, you'd install both using those links, and then when a site requests it, it'll boot the program up and allow you to play the game/watch the movie.

They use different interfaces you see, though it seems the fetchfidos games use mostly Flash (shockwave) to run the games which you'l need to play them.

i hope this helps

ok... I downloaded the first one successfully.

Then I went to the second one. This is what popped up.

"Error - Java (TM) Installer

The installer cannot proceed with the correct internet connection settings. Please check the installation notes for more information."

what does this mean?

hehe, posted exactly at the same time almost...

hmm weird. It might be something to do with the auto-installation running. This is a manual download:

I hope this helps
