I have several Flash games which until v.recently ran offline in Excel and PowerPoint but have now stopped working, presumably because Adobe has finally killed off Flash in the last few months. Windows update, in it’s infinite wisdom, seems to have gone ahead and uninstalled Flash for me when I updated to the latest build recently; I get that it would’ve been a security risk to keep it but it means that these games no longer work.
I found these two previous threads in the forums but as with every online search I run, they only seem to talk about browser-based, online flash content, whereas I’m wondering if there’s any way to get this offline stuff which used to work in the Office programs back up and running? Is there / would it maybe be possible to have a core for this kind of content?
Visual Basic for Applications is still installed on my machine and Excel Macros are still enabled for the content but the games just don’t run any more, presumably because Flash / Shockwave player is no more.
