Debugging Flash Player on Google Chrome

Just a quick tip in case you missed it. I’ve written previously on how to better develop Flash and Flex on Google Chrome. But, since Chrome is now auto updating the Flash Player with the latest release version, it ignores other players, debug player included.

In order to be able to run the Flash Player Debugger with Chrome:

  1. Go to *about:plugins *(past it in the address bar)
  2. Click on “Details” to see the full view (top-right)
  3. Search for this gcswf32.dll and click the “Disable” link just below it (be sure to click the first “Disable”)
  4. Install the Netscape-compatible plug-in from here.

Next time you will start Chrome it will use this debug player.
