Hi!

I have some doubts regarding the operation of Flash, which will be discontinued in December.

- Will it be discontinued in all browsers, including old ones? Example: Explorer
- The adoberuntimes (offline), which is installed on machines, also stop? Or will it be only in browsers?

We have applications that are opened through a WebView and the content is in flash.

If these are applications developed by your organization, you'll need to migrate them to a different technology.  Adobe's official distribution licensing partner HARMAN.  https://blog.adobe.com/en/fpost/2020/update-for-enterprise-adobe-flash-player.html...

Hello, Thank You.

 

What is the end of life? It is a period of operation of the offline?
