My wife bought a Compaq Laptop the other day (to replace a 3-year-old Laptop that was "playing up") and it has Windows 8 pre-installed. Everything started up fine, but when she tried to access games on Mindjolt and Zylom, both of the sites flashed up that an updated Flash Player version was needed. The current version on the laptop has "397" in the version number, whereas the version needed has "402" in the number.
Fine I thought, go into Adobe and download the latest version. Adobe site tells me that the updated version has to be accessed via the Windows update system. Therein lies the problem. It "appears" that the Update system does not recognise the compatibility of the new Flash Player version.
What the blue blazes is going on here? My wife is getting more and more frustrated (no smutty jokes please!) that she can no longer play her favourite online games.
Can any Computer "gurus" out there let me know how my wife can access her Mindjolt and Zylom Games before World War III erupts in our household?
As an added thought - just why are Microsoft "dragging their feet" over this issue? After all, there are enough posts on different websites from people complaining about Microsoft and their having released W8 with this (and other) unresolved issues.
