Google Chrome Shockwave Flash crashed

Monday, October 16, 2017 - by Keith A. Smith

Google put out an update over the a few days ago that patched a few things but they also somehow managed to update their embedded flash to a newer version than even Adobe Flash offers. 


Rebooting your computer and or your vcenter will not solve this issue.

Try navigating to %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\PepperFlash in Windows and you should see a folder called 27.0.0.170 – this is the new Flash distribution.  You should also see a folder called 27.0.0.159 and all you have to do is deleted the 27.0.0.170 folder and be on your way.  Some people have had to copy the contents from 27.0.0.159 into 27.0.0.170 and have had success that way.


Another work around would be to use another browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, etc.) to access vcenter. It’s been a tough month for patching, test when you can and always have contingency plan in case things don’t work as expected.
