I've recently become hooked on Flash physics games, and ordinarily I don't have problems getting them to play, but now I'm stumped. There is a game I keep trying to load on one of the major physics games sites, and I keep encountering an error message just as the game gets to 57% while loading. It stops loading and I get a message that says:

"Error in XmlMapBuilder:ProcessTaskQueue Null".

Is this a problem with the game, or is it on my end - perhaps an issue with my browser? I'd be inclined to say it's a problem with the game, except that other people have apparently been able to play it because they have left reviews saying how fun it was, etc.

Apparently it has something to do with my laptop, which is running Windows 7 64-bit and IE8. Tried other browsers and nothing solved it. So I fired up my desktop computer, which has Windows XP, and the games run perfectly. So who knows.

Flash is flaky so be sure that you have the right change level on the W7 machine.

Oh. Sorry, I'm not familiar with certain terms. I do have Flash 10.1 on the laptop. So I'm not sure why I'm having a problem. I have the same version on my WinXP desktop.

On your laptop, are you using 64bit IE8, or 32bit?
With Windows 7 64bit, you can use either.
Flash does not work on 64 bit browsers.

Can other flash applications be viewed on your laptop, like YouTube videos?

Yep, no problems with YouTube. In fact, I can play certain other Flash games on the laptop, but for some reason when I try a couple new ones from the same site, they don't work and I get that weird message I posted in my OP. Just strange that I can play them on my WinXP desktop.

If your problem so far has only been with one file/game, try another browser like Firefox, it might be the flash file/game that is the issue.
