my problem is already discussed on the following pages (none of them has an answer/solution):
I am using the latest Standalone Flash Player, version 188.8.131.52 and my operating system is Windows 7 Pro 64Bit.
I open swf-files with the following command:
"C:\Program Files\Tools\flashplayer_sa.exe" <swf-file>
Since some versions someone adds "-relaunched" after the filename and Flash Player doesn't load the swf, but shows a blank white page. It worked in the past, but I can't remember the last working version.
I made some tests and here are the results:
ok: "D:\Downloads\test\flashplayer_27_sa.exe" "D:\Downloads\test\game.swf"
ok: "D:\Downloads\test\flashplayer_sa.exe" "D:\Downloads\test\game.swf"
ok: "C:\flashplayer_sa.exe" "D:\Downloads\test\game.swf"
ok: "C:\Program Files\flashplayer_sa.exe" "D:\Downloads\test\game.swf"
problem: "C:\Program Files\Tools\flashplayer_sa.exe" "D:\Downloads\test\game.swf"
ok: "C:\Program Files\New Test\flashplayer_sa.exe" "D:\Downloads\test\game.swf"
As you can see spaces in the filename are not the problem. The filename of the Flash Player is also not important. Since "C:\Program Files\Tools" is only writable by administrators, I launched the player as admin, but the problem persists. I searched the windows registry (as admin) for "relaunched" but could only find it in the recent files list of the standalone flash player.
Can someone tell me, what the reason the for "-relaunched" is?

I made more tests and found the solution.
I have MPlayer installed in the folder "C:\Program Files\Tools". MPlayer has 2 files named "libbdplus.dll" and "libaacs.dll". If one of these files is in the same folder as the standalone flash player, the "-relaunched" is appended to the parameters of the standalone flash player. You can rename the dlls, but the flash player is able to find them even after rename. My solution is to remove the files. MPlayer works without these dlls.
