Hi, I created new mms.cfg file on Windows 7 machine with some allowed list but when I visit any url it allow the flash to run.

 

Same file on windows 10 is blocking the flash player.

 

mms.cfg file has these settings

 

EOLUninstallDisable=1

autoupdateDisable=1

slientAutoUpdateEnable=0

 

EnableAllowList=1

 

AllowListURLPattern = *://url1

AllowListURLPattern = *://url2

AllowListURLPattern = *://url3

 

When I visit url 4 on windows 7 which is not in the allow list I can still play the video but same url on windows 10 doesnt work

There are both 32-bit and 64-bit variants of Flash Player, and in order to use the 64-bit player, you need both a 64-bit OS and a 64-bit browser.  

 

My guess is that on Win10, you've got 64-bit everything, and you put mms.cfg in C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash, and everything works.

 

It's super common to have 64-bit Win7, but 32-bit IE, and my guess is that's what's happening here. 

In this case, the 32-bit Flash Player would get launched on a 64-bit system, and would need to look for mms.cfg in: C:\Windows\SysWow64\Macromed\Flash\.

 

(The other possibility is 32-bit Flash Player on 32-bit Win7, but then C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash would have worked.)

 

If that doesn't work, try putting mms.cfg in both System32 and SysWOW64, and then reboot. 

 

If you're still stuck, please include the details from the guide below, and a copy of your mms.cfg.

It definitely works right on Win7.  If you have a correct mms.cfg in both locations and it's not getting reflected in IE, make sure you have a current version of Flash Player installed.  If none of those apply, rebooting will probably get it working.

I have tried it with all possible ways and it does not work.

Win 10 works without any issue but Win 7 doesnt make any different with mms.cfg file.

 

Can you share what you have in your file for win 7 or can you upload the file

Why not share with us the exact location of your file, and also whether you have 32/64 bit Windows and whether you have 32/64 bit browsers.

1. Why UTF-8?

2. You have not shared all the requested info: also whether you have 32/64 bit Windows and whether you have 32/64 bit browsers.

UTF-8: OK, I checked the spec. BOM marks cause problems in many configuration files, but Flash is designed to process them correctly. So please answer the other questions.
