I am currently using crossover to run windows application. It is a flash application compiled to .exe. I ran the application and it shows,

"Failed to Load flash player"

How do I fix that problem? I am quite sure that you guys have this problem too.

If you need more information, please ask below.

If you do not understand, you might want to see a screenshot of the problem, or just comment to ask further question.

A very simple way, is to download windows's version of flash player, and install it on wine or cross-over. Re-run the application, it should work.
