MACRAMEDIA MADNESS. WILL FLASH BE RELEGATED TO JUST A MEMORY OF THE GREAT FREDDY MERCURY. I RECENTLY BOUGHT A I-MATE JAS/JAM AND ARE CONNECTED TO TELSTRA*S 3G NETWORK IN MELBOURNE AUSTRALIA. ITS A TREAT TO USE WITH ITS QUERKY KEYBOURD AND I JUST LOVE THE WIRELESS INTERNET ACCESS AT LIGHTNING SPEEDS. BUT I CARNT GET TO ACCESS MANY WEBSITES THAT REQIRE THE FLASH PLAYER TO VIEW THE SITE. SO WHY NOT JUST DOWNLOAD THE FREE FLASHPLAYER FOR POCKET PC" FROM MACRAMEDIAS WEB SITE. WELL BECAUSE THEY NO LONGER ALOW U TO DOWNLOAD IT FOR FREE. IT NOW COSTS HUNDREDS OF BUCKS. NEVER MIND I DID MANAGE TO FIND A LINK IN A FRIENDLY FORUM TO THE FREE DOWNLOAD. THIS I DID AND WHEN I WENT TO INSTALL THE FLASH FILE IT INFORMED ME THAT IT WASN'T A VALID POCKET PC FILE. WHAT AM I DOING WRONG. MY JAS/JAM RUNS WINDOWS MOBILE VERSION 5 . IS MY JAS/JAM A POCKET PC OR NOT? WHAT THE HELL GOOD IS IT OWNING A WEBSITE THAT REQUIRES FLASH TO VIEW IT WHEN THEY HAVE REMOVED THE FREE FLASH PLAYER. TOUGH LUCK TO ALL THOSE BUSSINESS/S THAT HOPE TO HAVE NEW CUSTOMERS GET ACCESS TO THEIR SITES. ANYONE HELP ME WITH MY PROBLEM PLEASE.? INNOVATIVEKIWI

Welcome to Geekzone... And I must say please do not write all in uppercase! It's the equivalent of SHOUTING ON THE INTERNET and hard to read! Also, what about making separate paragraphs?

Yes, your i-mate Jasjar is a Pocket PC. Macromedia Flash Player is free. You only need to pay to create. A simple search on the Adobe site reveals the link to the Adobe Flash Player 7 for Pocket PC download (first result, free).

Pocket Internet Explorer does not play well with some plugins though. And not all Flash sites are compatible with Adobe Flash Player for Pocket PC (as they are not compatible with Adobe Flash Lite for mobile phones). If a site doesn't work on Pocket Internet Explorer, try using Opera Mobile. I can even play YouTube movies with Opera Mobile and Flash Player.

Links from a friendly forum can be a virus or trojan. Always download from the original site. And when a file complains it's "not a valid Pocket PC application" it means you have to install it from your PC. Plug the Pocket PC to your computer, run the installer on your PC and the installation will be automatic.

What a great reply freitasm!

This has been really beneficial, I thought I was going to miss out because I didn't have a FlashLite capable phone - now I know I can play the games my colleagues make on my phone with the regular flash player - fabulous!

Supplementary question - may be a little OT (or is it?).  Does anyone know which IE7 setting to switch so Flash bits on webpages aren't surrounded by a grey box on mouseover and requiring that you "Click to activate and use this control"?  I've played with the ActiveX settings in the Security options but that's made no difference.
