Hi,

I created a mms.cfg file with all of the option but when I visit a site which has swf movie its still blocking it.

 

File Name: MMS.cfg

Format: UTF-8

File Data:

 

EOLUninstallDisable=1

AutoUpdateDisable=1

EnableAllowList=1

AllowListURLPattern=*:*

 

How can i test to see my mms.cfg file is working or not.

 

I'm only doing this on Windows 10 1809/1909 Mahicnes

Also, the documentation for these features is in the "Enterprise Enablement" section of the Admin guide, here: https://www.adobe.com/devnet/flashplayer/articles/flash_player_admin_guide.html There are a couple documentation bugs that we're in the process of getting corrected and published.  You can't allow all ports, and you can't allow all domains.  You have to specify at least *.<something>.<something>  (e.g.*.adobe.com, etc).

we found that after restart file in C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash get overwritten and browser (IE11) stopped working again. but it is possible that some other Enterprise update doing it.

So if you see the same issue - double check that files are updated correctly

FireFOX ESR does not block it. Then, you can easily disable browser updates.


IT is for enterprises, so enterprise versions allows it, as we need AdobeFlash to work for at least next 10 years. Too many management systems uses it (Vmware VDP for example, VC 6.5, some hardware).

Tested today - it works. * did not work in whitelist but exact URL-s are recognized.

AllowListURLPattern=*:* is not valid.  There's no "allow everything" setting.  The intent of this feature is to allow Enterprises with business-critical internal applications that are dependent on Flash to allow those specific applications in their managed environments.  This is not a mechanism to allow end-users to continue using Flash Player.
