Thanks for the ideas. I tried all three but no difference.
I've experimented with various WINEDEBUG settings, E.g:
WINEDEBUG=+file,+reg wine "~/.wine/drive_c/Program
Files/Macromedia/Flash 8/Players/SAFlashPlayer.exe" test1.swf 2>debug.log
As far as I can see the local storage settings are not read/write from
the registry, or the filesystem! Spooky, but it matches what I observed
poking around on the windows machine as well.
BTW, it was trying to read from:
so I created that directory, and copied in all the files from the
windows machine. I also created a blank sub-directory called
FlashPlayerTrust which is something else it looked for.
None of that made any difference.
Grrr... this is very frustrating. Currently the only linux standalone
player is version 6; if I could just get this working fully then we'd
have a flash 8 player. Everything else seems to work, it is just
changing the settings.

Can you tell me more about the flash plugin installer? Would I need a
Windows browser? Someone said trying windows firefox under wine didn't
work, but no specifics about what worked and what didn't (i.e. did
firefox not run, or was it just the flash 8 plugin didn't run, or does
the plugin run but just settings couldn't be changed)?
