    Since upgrading to 2.7, the flash media uploader window comes up, but the box that lets me select which files to upload is missing. Screen shot here.Haven't seen this exact problem described in any other thread. Am using FF3, WinXP. I haven't upgraded to Adobe Flash 10. Any ideas?

    Hi Kathy,
    the solution to problem is to check your wp-includes/js/swfupload folder for the following files :swfupload and swfupload_9 of one of those is missing the "Choose File" button will not appear. Just download a copy of 2.7 WordPress and upload the missing file on your server and it will correct the problem with the flash uploader. For some reason Automatic Upgrade plugin missed this file when upgrading my install. I had the same problem and this corrected it.

    Good Luck!

    rhayashida--you were absolutely correct, right down to knowing I used the Automatic Upgrade plugin--which I did not state in my initial post. Used the AU plugin on two different sites, two different servers. Both were missing the swfupload.swf file.

    Good call. Thank you so much!
