Shockwave shows initialization failed error after updating

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hello there,

Today I have updated my Shockwave and after rebooting these two errors appear on my desktop. As usually I have uninstalled and made a new clean install and is not working. Does anyone have a solution about these errors ? Why the updates of Shockwave is full with errors ?

Thank you !

This application requires an Xtra (Text) that either does not exist or failed to initialize properly. Please make sure the appropriate Xtras are in the Xtras folder(s).

If ever that you cannot solve the problem, I would suggest you to please re-download other versions of SW Player, I've done a search for a proper solution and it seems that it is a common problem after an update, and in case that you will be installing older versions (I will give the link below), please ignore another error message, it is an effect for reinstalling an older version to replace a latest buggy one.
