Adobe Flash Player 9 – Where is the debugger or host Application Running
Adobe Flash Player 9 application has some missing component. Sometimes when a user opens a website, even he has a working installation of Flash Player, he will get this prompt message. I used to visit a website regularly and that website gave me always this prompt. I thought that the website has something to do with it and when I clicked at “Don’t connect”, it always disappeared. Then I got this prompt today at my own website. I had to find some solution. Try these methods which have worked for me:
How to fix the Flash Player 9 debugger problem
There can be two possible solutions.
When the page opens, the element that is causing the problem will not be shown correctly. Right click at that and click at Debugger if the prompt is not opened already or you just cancelled it. This will bring the prompt again.
It will ask that where the debugger or host application is running and will provide two choices:
- Other Machine
- Select Other Machine
- Write in the IP Address box Local Machine Address i.e. 127.0.0.1
- Check the box which says Don’t show this dialogue at launch
- Click connect button
Problem should be solved and if you are running Flex Builder then you will notice the change that the connection has been successful.
- If your being prompted with this dialog box in Internet Explorer, Download and install Flash Player 9 ActiveX control content debugger (for IE)
- If your being prompted with this dialog box in Firefox, Download and install Flash Player 9 Plugin content debugger (for Netscape-compatible browsers)
If all goes well, your Flash Player 9 Debugger issues should be resolved.
