Install Flash player in Google Chrome

Google Chrome is yet another awesome browser in the history of internet. Yesterday I was checking back my infant websites. One of them was my flash based website. When I tried opening that website, nothing appeared on the site except blank page. I researched a bit about the problem. Then I found out that, Google Chrome does not support flash based websites or flash contents.

But however, if you want to run flash files on Google Chrome, you have to manually configure it with flash plugin for Chrome. Here are the instructions for installing Flash Player on Google Chrome:

  1. Download flash player for Windows.
  2. Rename the downloaded file to
  3. Extract the Zipped file to a folder.
  4. Select and copy flashplayer.xpt and NPSWF32.dll from the extracted folder.
  5. Navigate to Google Chrome plugins folder. Normally, it is C:/Documents and settings/Local Settings/Application Data/Google/Chrome/Application/Plugins
  6. Paste both copied files in Google Chrome plugins directory.
  7. Restart Google Chrome.

You can now open and run flash contents on Google chrome.
