Hi! Gapminder offline version doesnt seem to work with the latest version of Flash. A message says "Flash install required" or a exclamation mark is shown on our Windows 7 computers

  • Thanks Jonas!
    Just to let you know, we are currently working on a new version of gapminder offline tools that is not using flash, and it's almost ready!

    In the meantime, please try to follow these instructions:

    1. Uninstall the current version of Flash Player on your system. Uninstall gapminder world offline
    2. Download the zip file with Flash Player installers from:
    3. In the zip, go to the folder 20_0_r0_306.
    4. Open flashplayer20_0r0_306_win.exe
    5. This will install Flash Player 20 on your computer.
    6. At the end of the installation process, be sure to select the option ‘Never check for update (not recommended)’ or at least ‘Notify me to install updates’.
    (because if you update Flash Player, Gapminder World will stop working again)
    7. Go to: //
    8. Click the big green button under Download to download Gapminder World Offline
    9. Run the installation file that was downloaded.
    10. Start the just installed program Gapminder World

    Please tell me if it was helpful!
