This applies to Windows 7 and MXWendler version 4.2 and above

Problem

If you use MXWendler in Win7, or Flash > Version 9, you'll notice that system flash doesn't work.

Reason

1. Flash.ocx is not found.
2. You installed flash, but using Firefox.

Solution

Install Flash, but install it using the Internet Explorer.

Background

Firefox installs a private plugin .dll, Internet Explorer installs a system-wide ActiveX control ( which is used by mxw ).
