The administration of timed tests on this site makes use of the Adobe Flash Player. This free player
is available for many operating systems and browser versions, and has already been installed on most
Internet-connected computers. Click here to make
sure you have the latest version of the Flash Player.
If you are having trouble installing the free Flash Player, or viewing Flash content, please visit
the Adobe Flash Player Help.
There are some issues with certain browser versions/operating system combinations.
- The default version of Adobe Flash Player that came with Internet Explorer 7 and 8 must
be updated by visiting the Adobe
Flash Player Download page.
- The IOS operating system found on Apple iPads does not support the Adobe Flash system.
Listed below are some reasons why the SIGMATesting.Com timed administration module might not load
or play properly, even though the Adobe Flash Player has been correctly installed.
- Flash Module Cannot Load Test:
You probably don't have the latest version of the Macromedia Flash Player. Older versions
lack the ability to exchange information with the SIGMATesting.Com server. The default Adobe Flash
Player version that came with Internet Explorer 7 & 8 lacks the security permissions required
to work properly. Click here
to install the latest version.
- Browser Security Settings:
Make sure that your browser's security settings do not block plug-ins and/or content
- Pop Up Blockers:
Some pop up blockers also block Flash content. Temporarily disable the pop up blocker, or
configure it to not block content on SIGMATesting.Com.
- Security and Anti-Spyware Utilities:
Some security utilities may block Flash content. Temporarily disable the utility, or change
its settings to allow content from Adobe.
- QuickTime Conflict:
If installed, make sure that the QuickTime player is not configured to play Flash
files (look under File Associations in Preferences). While this player can play some Flash
movies, it cannot handle the timing features in the SIGMATesting.Com administration module.
