Hi there,

Flash player has been blocked from today apparently.

So this morning I could not visualize the content of an application I use for monitoring, I use Chrome last version, tried with Explorer same thing, it displays a logo pointing at Adobe website announcement regarding the end of Flash player.

On my colleague PC, using an older version of Chrome still works just fine! How come?

Is it still working on older versions of Chrome? Should I downgrade?

Notice that both PCs have no internet access, they are in the LAN only.

There are industry standard approaches to maintaining legacy software for archival purposes using virtualization and external security to allow users to run unmaintained software safely.  Those solutions are generally not free (from labor or licensing costs), and require a degree of expertise.  Advising on those topics is beyond the scope of what we're going to do here, but you're thinking along those general lines.

I met same problem with Poser 10. Poser libraries disappeared and in their position, the "Adobe Flash Player" is visible. Poser became useless.. From Adobe site, advised me to uninstall the "Adobe Flash Player"... I am still trying to solve the problem.

Hello, I have Poser Pro software and I am desperate because I can't run Poser libraries so I can't work, I depend a lot on that program (POSER) and as Libraries need flash player, I can not work. If you have an idea on how to solve that I'd be glad any help.

Thanks for reply. Thanks all people for help. Yesterday i found something
good in renderosity forum.
My system is W10/pc/Poser 10.
Solution found:
Exit Poser if it's running.

Find your poser.ini - the path may differ for you - mine is in

c:/Users/++user name++/AppData/Roaming/Poser/10

In your poser.ini look for

LIBRARY_EMBEDDED_TYPE 0

and change the 0 to a 1.

-Save the poser.ini file.
-Relaunch Poser 10.
Your libraries will come back again. A little bit different in view, but
they are back!

Your colleague will probably get blocked soon, though a few people with out of date systems have escaped for now. Flash is properly dead, completely dead. You need to use a different system for the task you have to do. Contact the maker, they have had 3 years to solve this for you. You may just need to buy an upgrade, rather than look for a whole new system.

If the PC would not have internet connection I suppose would still work maybe?

Cause the PC wouldn't be able to receive any updates from Adobe.

Your browsers and operating systems don't want you using Flash Player for security reasons.  See this link:

There are industry standard approaches to maintaining legacy software for archival purposes using virtualization and external security to allow users to run unmaintained software safely.  Those solutions are generally not free (from labor or licensing costs), and require a degree of expertise.  Advising on those topics is beyond the scope of what we're going to do here, but you're thinking along those general lines.

 

Here's the original announcement from 2017 with background and links to the browsers roadmaps: 

https://theblog.adobe.com/adobe-flash-update/

 

Flash Player is EOL, and all of the major browser vendors will follow pretty soon with updates that remove support for all browser plug-ins.  This means that even with an old Flash Player installed, you'll be hard-pressed to find a browser that will run it.  More importantly, those configurations would not be safe for browsing the open web. 

 

You have a number of options at your disposal, but the best option would be to update your application to remove the dependency on Flash Player. 

 

See the enterprise FAQ for your options: 

https://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/enterprise-end-of-life.html

 

The Enterprise Enablement section in the Flash Player admin guide may also be helpful:
