Question:

Why we need to install the flash player from Xceedium browser, even though one is installed on the Machine? 

 

Answer:

- IE and Firefox uses NPAPI based Flash Player, where are chrome and opera browsers uses PPAPI based Flash plugin. 

- Xceedium Browser is built on Chromium platform, Hence it uses PPAPI version of the flash plugin. 

- The one that is already installed on the machine might be of NPAPI, not PPAPI. This could be the reason why xceedium browser is not detecting it.

- Install PPAPI version of plugin. One source that I found to install PPAPI directly from adobe site is this.
