Flash and Shockwave Forum

Where is the debugger or application host running?
I'm ignorant and apathetic - I don't know, and I don't care.

I despise Netsol. Long story short, trying to transfer a domain away is like trying to break free from a spiteful lover with all appendages intact.

Every page I navigate on the NetSol site is giving me this annoying error:

Adobe Flash Player 9
Where is the debugger or host application running?
- Localhost
- Other Machine
-IP Address

My Flash plugins are fine on any other site. I'm wondering if they've been hacked and this is some phishing attempt, or this is some Flash created by NetSol that is telling me I need to upgrade my environment to suit that of the overbloated corporate web site I am visiting. Has anyone else seen this?

If this is something programmed into Flash, I hope I don't accidentally put it into any of my Flash projects, or I'd deserve the ire of a thousand fleas.

I am seeing this more and more on different web sites now. Mods, kindly move to the Flash forum as it is not a domain name issue (although, according to the scant info I found, it indicates the Flash programmers at NetSol need to get their programming right:)

So to prevent your viewers from ever getting spammed with "Where is the debugger" modal windows, ensure all your swfs (embedded and run-time loaded) are non-debug or force your viewers to update to the most recent flash player if they don't have atleast 9,0,115,0.

Reference available via PM

By the way, started seeing this *after* updating my Flash plugins.

Other sources indicate a corrupted Flash player or user configuration, none of which "fixes" the issue.
