Google Chrome Portable With Flash Player

Posted onby admin

Search the world's information, including webpages, images, videos and more. Google has many special features to help you find exactly what you're looking for. Chromium is the open source web browser project from which Google Chrome draws its source code. Chromium is essentially similar to Google Chrome, except by the omission of certain Google additions, most noticeable among them: Google's brand, auto-update mechanism, usage-tracking, and bundling of Adobe Flash Player and of a PDF viewer.

Even though video sharing websites such as YouTube are switching many of their videos to HTML5, there’s no doubt that the Adobe Flash format is still hugely popular and commands a large share of the market. There are many computer users around who don’t like Flash and refuse to have the player installed because of various security concerns or performance related issues, and other users just don’t need or want it installed because they don’t view Flash content.

Portable applications such as the Firefox and Opera web browsers are very popular these days and they make use of plugins to add components to the browser. One of the plugins you can add is one to enable Adobe Flash Player support, but the problem being there isn’t a portable version of Flash to use in the portable browser. There is however, one popular browser that’s had built in Flash support for a couple of years. If you don’t want to manually enable support for Firefox or Opera, simply download and use Google Chrome portable.

There are ways to get around this problem if you want to use Flash with a portable Firefox or Opera, but they all have one thing in common, which is you will at some point need the Flash Player plugin installed on a computer somewhere to get the needed files as they can’t simply be extracted from the setup installer.

You do in fact only need a single file from the Flash installation to enable it in the portable browser, which is NPSWF32.dll. Some sources also mention the need for the flashplayer.xpt file but that’s not really necessary because it’s for scripting support.

From a Local Source

If you have the Flash PLUGIN BASED player installed on a computer you have access to, just go to the following location to find NPSWF32.dll:

In Windows 64-bit – C:WindowsSysWOW64MacromedFlash

In Windows 32-bit – C:WindowsSystem32MacromedFlash

Newer versions of the file also have revision numbers in the name such as “NPSWF32_14_0_0_145.dll”.

From the Internet

You might be able to find the dll file from various online sources, but you can’t always guarantee its safety. For your convenience we have hosted the Flash Player NPSWF32.DLL file to make things a bit easier, simply extract it from the zip archive and follow the instructions below to add to your portable browser.

Download NPSWF32.DLL

Without Installing or the Internet

Things get a little tricky if you have no access to the dll file locally and don’t want to download it because the Flash plugin needs installing for you to get hold of it. A few creative ways are using a sandbox application such as Sandboxie, or alternatively run the Flash installer inside a virtual machine using a program such as Virtualbox.

Installing the DLL into Firefox Portable

Once you have the NPSWF32.DLL all you need to do is copy it to the correct folder. If you don’t have Firefox portable yet, it can be downloaded at

Copy the DLL to – FirefoxPortableDataplugins

If you’re using a portable Firefox extracted from the original installer, you need to create a “Plugins” folder in the main folder and then copy the dll into it.

To make sure that Flash is properly installed and loaded into Firefox portable, go to the Addons Manager by pressing Ctrl+Shift+A -> Plugins. You can also check it’s working by going to the Adobe Flash test page.

Installing the DLL into Opera Portable

The procedure for installing the Flash dll into a portable version of Opera is essentially the same apart from the folder to copy the file to is different.

Copy the DLL to – OperaPortableAppOperaprogramplugins

Then type About:Plugins to check Flash is installed properly, or go to the Adobe test page to make sure it works.

Additional Note: It’s worth pointing out that during testing the portable Firefox kept crashing with the latest Flash Player plugin (11.6.602.180) and we had to resort to using an earlier version to get it working. If you have similar issues, download an earlier Flash plugin version and try that.

Thank you for the instruction.
I’ve got a question though. I’m using the official portable Opera, and it has no directory as OperaPortableAppOperaprogramplugins. All there is is 41.0.2353.69, Assets, and profile. Where should I copy NPSWF32_23_0_0_207.dll?


Could you update these instructions for latest versions of Opera please?

This guide references paths that don’t exist in current rev from PortableApps (October 2016: v40.0.2308.81).

HAL9000 Admin6 years ago

Updated to…



great flash works :)
but how to get the latest version for firefox portable?

HAL9000 Admin7 years ago

Google Chrome Flash Player Plugin

I’ve updated the download to the latest NPSWF32 dll for Flash 14, simply copy that to the appropriate Firefox folder.


what I did was install flash on my pc to internet explorer 7 , that put the flash files
in system 32 folder.
Then after that I found I had to put the whole macromedia folder into Firefox plugin folder.
Then the flash worked and i Could watch videos in the portable Firefox.
If you get the latest flash installed on any browser in windows , just copy macromedia folder
that is in system 32 folder, and paste into portable Firefox plugin folder.
I dont think you can update because flash installer will not find the portable browser,
only the installed browsers.
It might if you put portable Firefox plugin folder into C:program files, might have to try that.

you have to have the whole macromedia folder in firefox plugins folder for flash to work.

On January 12, Adobe activated their End-Of-Life Killswitch, disabling Flash Player on millions of machines worldwide. Needless to say, not everyone is happy with the decision.

Many members of the Flash community have come up with workarounds to continue to run .swf files in the post-EOL era. Read on to find a workaround that best suits you!

Do you still use Flash Player? Data Horde is conducting a survey to see how frequently people continue to use Flash Player even at the very end of its lifespan. It would mean a lot to us if you could spare 5-10 minutes to complete a very short survey.


It’s still possible to run Flash Media (.swf files) without actually using Flash Player. Two mature Flash Player emulators are Ruffle (ActionScript 1&2) and Lightspark (ActionScript 3). Ruffle even has an online demo if you’d like to see it in action before installing.

You can find a more thorough list of emulators in the Flash Player Emergency Kit.

Chrome Flags:

If you’re using any version of Google Chrome, up to and including Google Chrome 87, you might not have to install anything at all! You should be able to continue to use an older version of Flash Player which was immune to the effects of the EOL Killswitch.

Simply run Chrome with the --allow-outdated-plugins flag:

Downgraded Firefox:

In addition to the EOL killswitch, Adobe have gone out of their way to remove downloads for previous versions of Flash Player from their website. That being said, there are ways to acquire a past versions of Flash Player, immune to the EOL killswitch.

Google Chrome Portable With Flash Player

An out-of-the-box solution is to install Waterfox, a modern fork of Firefox which also supports a lot of legacy features including Flash Player. Another option is Basilisk, up to version 2020.11.25 anyway.

If you would rather stick to a more traditional approach, u/Cifra85 made a Reddit post on how to install a portable Firefox Browser which comes bundled with an older version of Flash Player:

If you’re concerned about incompatibility, another option is Firefox 78 ESR (Extended Support Release) which will continue receiving updates until September of this year.

Modify Configuration File:


Adobe has made it no secret that they intend to offer a killswitch workaround for enterprise customers, via their partner HARMAN, starting February. Leave it to the online Flash community to discover it in January!

Edit 5 May 2021: Consider installing FlashPatch, a tool which greatly simplifies the steps described below.

Spider, an Adventure Quest fanatic, was one of the first people to discover that all it took was a couple of modifications to a configuration file!

If you’re not on Windows, mms.cfg goes in /Library/Application Support/Macromedia on Mac and /etc/adobe/ on Linux. For more details on mms.cfg see Flash Player 32’s manual (page 41).

Flash Player Projector:

Using the Flash Player projectors, it’s possible to run .swf’s outside of a browser, with some minor limitations. Strangely projectors for Windows, Mac and Linux have not been removed from from Adobe’s website and are still available.

Google Chrome Portable With Flash Player -

Flash Player projectors can be downloaded from Adobe’s Flashplayer Debug Downloads Section, and mirrors can be found on the Wayback Machine and the Internet Archive.

Alternative Ways of Running Old Versions of Flash:

Another unique solution is to use the Cloud Browser Puffin, which can render Flash content remotely. Do note that Puffin is not free on every platform.

As a final workaround, you can try running an old version of Flash Player outside of a browser. Although there are a number of third-party archives out there, setting these up can be non-trivial.

Instead we would highly recommend Bluemaxima’s Flashpoint, a Flash game/animation Browser of sorts which comes with a built-in older version of Flash Player.

We hope you were able to find a solution that works for you. If you have any comments or suggestions let us know at [email protected]

Now go on and spread the word! Tell all your friends and family how they can continue to use Flash Player even in 2021!
