Adding Flash to your Portable Chrome

I was using a school computer today, and I wanted to use this neat little service called bubbl.us

The problem? The site requires Adobe Flash Player to function, and to try to combat the playing of bubbleshooter when students should be working, the school decided to not have Flash installed.

If you are having a similar problem, the solution is very simple, and basically anyone can do it!

So let’s take a look at how to accomplish this magical computer trickery!



A flashdrive (256mb+)

How to do it:

1. Download a portable copy of Chrome (you can use other browsers for this, but I will use Chrome for this tutorial)


2. Then, you should download the latest version of Chrome


3. Then, copy your new version of chrome (the “/Chrome/” directory only!) and overwrite the /Chrome/ directory in your Chrome Portable installation. For some reason, you can’t use just a normal chrome installation on a flashdrive, not sure why.

Now that you have your portable chrome up to date, the next step is to “install” flashplayer.

4. Download this file from the official flash site:


5. Rename the file and change the extension to .zip

6. Open the file and copy the files flashplayer.xpt and NPSWF32.dll to your /Chrome/Application/Plugins/ directory

7. Enjoy your flash applications anywhere!

Hope that you found this tutorial helpful, and if you have any suggestions, comments, or questions, just leave them in the comments section, I will try to help.
