IE caching for our flash application problem

Q: IE caching for our flash application problem

Hi,

At the moment we are running an online virtual world game with around 1500 simultaneous users in the evening and around 1200 new users a day. Unique logins are around 13000. They are mostly kids between 8 and 12 years old. Currently we are having problems with files not being cached in the browsers of our clients. We tried all kinds of different headers but to no result. This results in heavy bandwidth usage of our server giving us high costs. Since most of our users use Internet Explorer we don't want to rule out IE specific problems (if any exist). Last month we moved around 6000 gigs.

The situation is as follows:

We have 34mb worth of files ( SWF's and some MP3's) of which the main SWF file is the largest (8mb). This file loads all the other files depending on need. We are not using any get or post parameters on url's to load these files and the files are 100% static. We are not using any expiry dates or times. The only thing we basically use is if-modified-since in our headers. We don't do any frequent updates of our content.

Yet hardly anything seems to stay in the cache, with our own tests, it seems fine for a couple of hours but after a longer time ( maybe 24h) it seems to disappear from the cache without any serious browsing or downloading. Although we don't have hard evidence for it we don't think it is the cache of our client overflowing as it would require a lot of browsing and downloading for that to happen. Which is not very likely for an average household.

Any input would be appreciated!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

I don't know if any of you are aware of the website called 99Rooms.com, It's an interactive flash site that you can order on cd-rom if you like it that much. The problem is, I ordered the cd, but when I run the program, my mouse pointer sticks to the center of the screen, when I try to move it, the pointer moves so far, then quickly goes back to the center, which means i'm unable to get to the menu's or anything, making the whole thing useless. I've tried emailing the distributors, but my emails get returned undelivered. I'd also like to add that my mouse works perfectly with it on the website, but not with the cd. Does anybody have any ideas? Thanks

I have windows Vista home basic 32 bit operating system. Recently i installed IE9 ans now if i open a website after clearing cache it gives HTTP code 200 on fidddler then on second session it gives 304 for most of the request . My temporary internet file setting is "Automatic". I checked on temporary internet files and nothing is seen there. If i do the same in firefox 4 then on second request it doesnt give 304 and content is served from cache and i am able to see the content there in firefox cache.
1). In case of IE9 if content is not there in cache then how it is giving HTTP response code 304 (not modified)
2). Is there any other cache other than disc cache if yes then how can i see the content of that cache.

A:caching problem in IE9

I recently installed IE9 on my Windows vista home 32 bit. Whenever I open a website after clearing browser cache then on fiddler first time it gives HTTP code 200 for all requests. When i check on browser cache all gif, jpeg, js are cached and expiry time is 1 month. But when i open the same page it gives HTTP Status code 304 for gif, jpeg and js.
Not able to figure it out why it is not picking the content fron the browser cache. Temporary Internet Files setting in set to "Automatic".

Hi

I have a company network with 2 internal dns servers on 192.168.0.7 and 192.168.0.9.
Using DHCP.

2 problem Win7 clients.

When I run ipconfig /all on both it shows both DNS servers as expected 

We have a corporate server on AWS and it's IP address changed on Monday during a restart.
Shouldn't have but it did, so we are stuck with a new public facing DNS name for that server, so we updated the friendly CNAME record to point to the new address.

18 of our 20 internal clients, including Win7, 8 and 10 clients and Mac and Linux clients are all finding the corporate server now using the original friendly name.

But 2 Win7 clients are still not getting there.

On both, if we run
nslookup <friendly.domname.com>

It returns the name of of our primary internal DNS server (as nameserver) and the NEW IP address of the host address

So it seems that the client's base OS DNS lookup returns the correct IP.

If I paste that IP into either chrome or Internet Explorer, I get the correct website.

However, if I enter <friendly.domname.com> into either browser (and Firefox) a different website appears.

I can in Chrome test the dns resolver using chrome://net-internals/#dns which returns a list of addresses in chromes internal cache.
And I can flush that browser dns cache by clicking the "clear host cache" button

If I then try the same <friendly.domname.com> again, the cache list is re-populated with a bunch of urls acce... Read more

hi,

i'm a newbie web designer, and i've got what seems to be a pb w/caching. the pb only occurs in IE -- not mozilla or netscape.

what happens is, the page loads and i go to mouse over an image where i've got image swapping set up for a mouseover. instead of just swapping the image, IE does another GET. once the mouse leaves the image, IE does yet another GET to redisplay the image it already had. i can keep doing this ad infinitum, it does a GET for every single image swap, even once it's gotten the image already.

here's weird thing #1: i'm preloading the images. looking at the web server trace file, IE definitely does preload the images, so it shouldn't need to keep GETting them.

weird thing #2: going to another page by clicking a link, then using "back" to get back to the bad page alleviates the pb; the bad page displays perfectly.

now here's weird thing #3: the pb goes away when i completely clear out the cache! if i manually delete all the files in Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5 and then go into internet options and do it again so that IE knows everything's gone, then reload the page -- everything works fine, just like it does w/mozilla! no delays on image swapping! IE preloads the images and swaps them w/o doing any more GETs. i was thinking that if it were a pb w/the image not being cached, a sure way to reproduce the pb would be to clear out the cache. in fact, that solves the pb.

So I have Internet Explorer 7 beta 3 RC1 or w/e and recently it stopped caching my pages at all. I've set the amount of disc space to use to 70 MB and to let it Automatically check for updates of pages, and I don't delete the temporary files, yet whenever I go to GMail there is a noticeable pause on The Loading page. Normally it skips that page since it's already been cached, but nowawadays it stays there for like 1 minute. It doesn't cache any other page either, I've tried it with Google, my blog, TH, TSG, etc. Any help? I want it to cache properly so I can reduce wait times when browsing.
I've tried clearing all my temporary files (temp files, cookies, history, etc.), reinstalling Internet Explorer 7, and rebooting the computer and such but no luck.

Hiya

I've moved this to Web and Email for more response

Just to put your mind at ease, its not just IE7. I have IE6 on XP home, and it does it for me on Gmail. It just sits there, but if you click Refresh, it finds the page. I wonder if there has been an increase in users.

I know that they've changed their page layout recently, so maybe that has someting to do with it.

Or have I misread this post, and its with all websites? I'll see if someone can take a look at your HT log.

Okay, This one is a bit hard to explain.

I have a burnt copy of Flash on disk which I wanted to install onto my computer.
Just to clear up, not Flash Player (Like to watch things) but the application (to make things) Got it?

Kay.

So, I open up the file in Windows Explorer.
The disk also contains some flash movies and stuff.. but they shouldn't be a problem.
Before I can even click anything, an error message pops up
"Windows Explorer has experienced a problem and needs to close"

Extremely annoying.

Now before you all go to the easy solution of "Its a virus"
I assure you, I am well protected with Norton 360 and my two friends have never had any problems with the disk previously.

Help would be much appreciated !!

Thankyou =]

A:Explorer/Flash Application Error. Please Help.

Hi lustmyeyes


Did you resolve your error?

I imagine you'd be fine if you move the flash installer & it's files to another disk -- likely some other file on your current disk has a file-extension that is assigned to Explorer, which can't run it and throws up the error.

Another tactic would be to disable Autorun on the CD/DVD drive temporarily.

Best of luck

Hey ,

since I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium x64 I'm getting a wierd problem. Sometimes my Browser ( FF 3.5 , IE8 , Opera10 ) stops responding. I have to close it via Task Manager and re-open it. When viewing a video on youtube , it stops responding immediately.
I cannot use Windows Media Player , ICQ , Skype or any Internet Browser until I reboot. The event history is only giving me a " 1002 - Application Hang ".

I think it has something to do with Adobe Flash Player. If I uninstall , the problem goes away - but I cannot live without Adobe Flash

My Problem is very similar to another one from this board :

I have a flash application running within a secure site. The program uses resources such as video clips and powerpoint presentations. Video clips work OK, but when I ask it to open a .ppt, a popup window appears briefly and then disappears again.
Popup blocker is disabled, and I don't have google or yahoo toolbars.
It's running in a trusted site with all the settings set to minimum security.
there is nothing wrong with the ppt - it runs perfectly on my pc, and from within my secure site.
And (perhaps crucially) it all works perfectly in Firefox!

This all leads me to conclude that there is a setting in IE7 that is wrong, but I can't for the life of me figure out what.

Can anybody help?

Hello frankp747,From what I read, the "Wininet.dll" error can be caused by software, hardware, or malware. Why were you performing a system restore? Have you tried to access Safe Mode?As the computer is booting, tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the "Advanced Boot Options" Menu.Use your arrow keys to move to "Last Known Good Configuration" then press the <Enter> key. Reboot the computer.If that doesn't work, try "Safe Mode."If Safe Mode loads then try to do a System Restore using a point before your troubles began.

I was going to ask EA this, but their support contact form doesn't seem to work.

I used to play the Sims 2 on my pc. The pc was slightly underqualified, but besides slow gameplay it seemed to work fine. I had all the expansions save for University installed.

All of a sudden when I was playing it seemed to freeze,and a popup saying 'This application has crashed, application will not terminate' popped up. This happened around the time that I upgraded my pc with additional RAM and when I installed Free Time. I didn't know if it was the problem of either those things.

I still kept playing, but after a while I could only play for about 5 minutes before it popped up again. Then, I decided to play with an older lot that I created before the installation of Freetime. Strangely, I was able to play in that lot for hours and I never got that popup. The popup only came up during the actual game play, so not during CAS, or building etc.

I recently bought a new laptop. It's a special gaming laptop and it has really good specs, so I decided to buy it, mainly because I play the SIms 2 a lot. (See DXDiag). I installed all the expansion (including university), so now I have all the expansions+stuff packs on this laptop. I also copied all the custom content from my computer to my laptop.

I had followed the instructions in adobe, uninstall and reinstall adobe player 10, but it doesn't solve the problem...

I think the problem lies in Microsoft or Adobe itself because I didn't experience the problem in Windows 7 RC.

What does someone need to know about installing something like Skype onto a usb flash drive as a portable application? There is a portableapps.com/apps website which shows a listing for Skype. Some things seem unclear. One can install to a usb flash drive, what I may like to do. Would one download the installer for the portable Skype to the computer or to the flash drive itself? When the installer is then run and the destination for the install is picked, as to the usb flash drive, does the computer itself have registry entries and other files put into Windows System/System32 folder, which would not be on the usb flash drive? Then how are the flash drive and the computer from which the installation was made, be coordinated or associated after installation? What then should happen if later one wishes to update or upgrade to a higher version the portable Skype? Need to go back to the same computer and the same flash drive and run an update or upgrade installer? What about uninstalling?

If instead of an installer, the portable application were to be merely in zipped form needing to only be unpacked onto the flash drive, then this would appear simple; but one seems to be directed to download and INSTALLER, not a zipped package.

Hello so basically I'm still trying to solve this problem when I'm just web browsing or doing something such as watching videos, I will notice my laptop screen will flash randomly so when I look into Event viewer I noticed the application Experience is causing it. I think it could be other applications but when I looked into this one it was Googleupdate.

You raised the exact same problem here:
Do I have a bad Graphics card or what is it causing this problem?
You were offered a number of suggestions but it doesn't look as if you tried any of them. Why start the same thread again when you haven't responded to the help previously offered?

Have XP with all recent updates. When going to Adobe.com, I can't load Flash Player. I keep getting the following prompt - iexplore.exe - application error... This memory could not be written See attachment for screen shot of the application error message with additional coding information.
Here is what I have tried so far without success:
When prompt appears - tried clicking cancel to de-bug...Results in computer freeze. Usually have to reboot.
Removed all past flash players versions from hard drive.
Scanned for virus and spy-ware - None found.
Tried the Repair Registry Software that claims it will solve this problem. It didn't help.
Security set to medium / custom setting to enable active X settings
Tried loading older versions of Flash Player to no success. Get the same prompt.
I'm at a loss as to what needs to be done. Can anyone provide suggestions?

Thanks,

A:Solved: Flash Player - iexplore - Application Error

When you say 'load', do you mean that you are attempting to install or upgrade the Flash plugin for IE? Assuming the Adobe site works for you, try this version tester to see what, if any, version you currently have; http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/155/tn_15507.html (the latest is 10,0,32.18).

Newer versions of Flash should be uninstalled with the special Adobe uninstaller, if you didn't use it, try it now in case your problem has something to do with leftover components of old versions of Flash; http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/141/tn_14157.html Note that if you have other browsers installed, the uninstaller will remove their Flash plugin as well and you will need to replace it.

If the uninstaller doesn't help, you could try following the advice in this Adobe Troubleshooter; http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/191/tn_19166.html Hopefully, the Registry 'repair' tool you ran hasn't done any permanent damage. Those things rarely do any good!

I have uninstalled and reinstalled Adobe Flash Player. I have went to Adobe site to do a test, it says it is installed and working. Here is the problem. I have been to two different site for employement to fill out the companies online application, however I am getting messages that keep telling me to install an updated browser( I use IE8) Which I have installed several times and/or my flash plugin needs to be installed. Okay so here I have installed a browser update to IE8 and have uninstalled and reinstalled Adobe flash player which according to Adobe has installed successfully and working. I have also contacted the companies where I have experience the problems they say it's my computer not them.
 

A:Flash Player Plugins is installed and working?But won't work for business application

Is this the test you ran to check your version of Adobe Flash?; http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/155/tn_15507.html If not, run this and see if it confirms your version as 10.0.22.87 Alternatively, you could try the test at this site (which is optimized for IE) to see if it confirms that you have the various plugins etc; http://www.b2knet.com/

Assuming the tests are positive, there is one more thing you could do, which is to try installing a 'standalone' version of Flash; http://www.softwarepatch.com/internet/flash.html

If none of this helps, you may be a victim of an IE 8 problem which I can't help with, but someone else here may be able to. Depending on whether you use XP or Vista, it may be possible to revert to IE 7 (or better still, use Firefox or Opera). Wait and see what others advise.

When I load certain websites with flash ads and such, everything goes smoothly, untill the flash object loads and starts playing - once it loads the screen flickers and gets kind of hazy. Nothing is really effected or harmed, but the slight haziness/fuzziness is rather anoying. Once I exit the web browser, everything goes back to normal.

It doesn't matter whether I'm using Iexplorer or Opera, so I'm thinking it is directly related to the Macromedia flash player.

I am still struggling with a problem that has plagued me for some days! I have visited the security forum and gotten a lot of great advice from a senior member there.

The problem is this:

Slowly flash files have been not opening in first Internet Explorer and more recently even in Firefox. Oddly, some flash files open, but I haven't been able to play YouTube videos for several months. At first I was able to open YouTube flash files in Firefox. Now, when I click on the flash file, it either goes to a blank white screen with the hourglass or it hangs, halfway open.

I have done many things to try and fix this. I have run Hijack This numerous times. I have worked on several rootkit eliminators. I have picked up a couple of rootkits and eliminated them. At present there doesn't seem to be any rootkit problem, though those suckers may be lurking there or already done damage to my browsing capability.

Here's another thing. When I open IE, I can browse okay for a while, but certain sites won't open. Other sites open more slowly than they used to do. If I close IE completely and reopen it, I can then browse okay, until it gets flakey again!

Does anyone identify this problem or know what may be going on? I have checked my IE options folders numerous times. I have deleted cookies and temp files. I have looked at my add-ons (I run Windows XP Pro). I have booted and rebooted; I've run numerous spyware programs and other registry cleanup programs, etc.

Since the problem is with IE and Firefox, it doesn't sound like a browser problem. It may be a JAVA issue though. Make sure you have the latest version. Also make sure to UNINSTALL any older versions, as they have "holes" that can allow malware to run.

The latest version can be downloaded from http://java.sun.com

Hi all,

When you load a webpage, the files (images, ...) that the webpage contains will be downloaded. If the server hosting the webpage goes down while the files are being downloaded, then IE's Temporary Internet Files will contain partially downloaded files. When the server is back up and running, and you refresh the page, the partially downloaded files will not finish downloading, and will never be downloaded again. The webpage will never display the files that were partially downloaded, and the only way to fix this is to delete the Temporary Internet Files.

Other browsers do not have this problem. It looks like IE does not compare the file size in the Cache, to the file size on the server, but only compares the date, which is the same.

How to reproduce the problem (for developers):
-create a webpage that contains a big file (jpg, swf, or any file).
-on a client computer, clear the Temporary Internet Files, then start loading the page.
-before the file has time to finish downloading, stop and start the web server.
-look inside the Temporary Internet Files, and you will see a partially downloaded file.
-refresh the page, and the partially downloaded files will not finish downloading.

Note: I tried many different file headers, but it looks like whatever header you set for the file, even "no caching ..." headers, the problem always happens.

In general, it's not going to do anything other than force the system to go out and repopulate the cache as you surf the web.

Also, if the DNS Cache is "poisoned" it can prevent you from reaching a website that you want to go to.

The problem - even after running McAfee, problems persist. The issue- when running various applications (Word, Excel, Internet Explorer, etc...) the Title Bar's 'flash' (from active to inactive) on occassion. I can usually restore functionality by clicking in the window, however, sometimes when this happens when using IE, it will close abruptly without pattern. I've recently been receiving 'Low Virutal Memory' warnings and recently switched the setting to allow the system to manage the swap size. Additionally- have been witnessing various CPU spikes in Task Manager when doing nothing at all!?!?!?... Any help you can provide is appreciated.

I have to run CCleaner on a regular basis, to stop slowdown due to this.

Has anyne else seen this, or can anyone assist in rectifying?

Thanks in advance.

Hello!

I am about to buy my SSD, but I don't know whether I can use the Crucial M4 64GB for caching, next to using it for my complete OS and a game (maybe two, 7 GB average). Because what I would like to do, is put my OS on it (Win7 64-bit) and the game. And then use (a part of) the space left (around 30GB, reserving 27GB for the OS and 3~4GB for the game) for Caching.

Will this work? Or can I only use the Intel SSD Caching on a empty SSD?

P.S. Someone told me I could only use ~20GB or 60GB for SRT Caching, I find this hard to believe, is it true?
P.P.S. Is it true I ought to put the SRT Caching to 64GB? Or would there actually be a difference if I would put my OS and Call of Duty 4 directly on my SSD?


Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hi,

We use a WPAD file hosted on a Websense appliance and use IE11 on Windows 7 x64.

We are seeing some performance issues with the Websense delivery of WPAD and have discovered that every computer is making a large amount of calls to the websense appliance to retrieve WPAD.dat. (Up to 1000 per machine in some cases)

We have worked with Websense and found that they were returning a 'no-cache' option in the WPAD response header. Via a patch we have had this removed.
However I still can't find a cached WPAD file on my machine that I am using for testing and have checked all the registry entries I can think of related to caching.

Ok, so my hard drive in ACHI mode does not allow me to enable write caching but in compatibility mode it does.

Should I enable write caching?

Also this whole thing about memory loss is bugging me on what they are talking about. I have a laptop with a battery and mostly has power. But what if power were to cut off or it gets somehow unpluged, will my HD be corrupt? or would that "Word" document I was working on that was not saved be gone, everything else will be fine?

Thanks

A:Write caching

You can read this tutorial from Vistax64 on it. Basically, it's not recommended for laptops without a UPS. I believe if the power were to go out, only the temp. cache would be lost, so like your word document you were working on might be lost if it were to go out.

Also a tut on how to enable it with AHCI on, but I don't think it was relevant if you read all the comments in the tutorial.
