So you probably came into work on Monday and tried to use the web client to connect to your vSphere environment and saw this:
Oh no! Ugh, now you need to reboot your computer and… same thing, over and over. Turns out, Google Chrome had an update over the weekend that patched some stuff but they also somehow managed to update their embedded flash to a newer version than even Adobe Flash offers. Odd.
Thanks to Reddit user /u/theVelement for posting the (hopefully temporary) fix. Just navigate to %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\PepperFlash in Windows and you should see a folder called 22.214.171.124 – this is the new Flash distribution. You should also see a folder called 126.96.36.199 and all you have to do is deleted the 188.8.131.52 folder and be on your way. Some people have had to copy the contents from 184.108.40.206 into 220.127.116.11 and have had success that way.
However, I did not have 18.104.22.168 at all! Anywhere! Work PCs, home PCs, lab VMs, nothing! Fortunately I was chatting to /u/Icarusfixius in Discord and we were lamenting over the issue. He was nice enough to shoot me his 22.214.171.124 directory since I have no traces of it over here, and boom! All back to normal (I hope)!
So, if you’re in a position where you don’t have the “older” 126.96.36.199 folder, I am hosting it here for you to download. The filename is 188.8.131.52.zip but it’s got the earlier versions contents inside. Of course your mileage may vary etc. etc. but maybe this will help others in the future. Good luck!
