(TechNote) Due to recent enhancements and features added to Macromedia Flash Player 8, certain operating systems are no longer supported for playback of Flash movies. Starting with the Flash Player 8 release, Macromedia Flash Player is no longer available for Microsoft Windows 95, Microsoft Windows NT, or classic Macintosh operating systems.
Legacy versions of Macromedia Flash Player have security and stability issues that are corrected in Flash Player 8. Users who cannot install or upgrade to Flash Player 8 should download and install the Flash Player version 7r68 included in this TechNote to take advantage of security updates for Flash Player 7.
Macromedia recommends that all Flash Player users on supported systems upgrade to the most recent version of the player through the Player Download Center.
