Embedding FlashPlayer controls (ActiveX) in VB.NET, and There is an application that plays SWF files.

I know.
And please answer the question.
I'm asking if local SWFs will continue to play in FlashPlayer Control (ActiveX : Shockwave Flash Object).

 

I need more information about what will happen after December 31, 2020. A lot of work has already been moved to HTML5, but some users are still using the old one. We don't want those people to suddenly find themselves unable to use it.

 

What will happen if you run a desktop application that uses FlashPlayer Control (ActiveX) after December 31, 2020?

 

Do you get an error message?
Will it prompt you to uninstall?
The swf won't play and the white screen?

 

I understand that playback is blocked. But I do not understand how it is blocked.

You guys are not explaining it well enough.

 

Isn't it possible to check in advance what is going to happen?

 

I know that uninstalling is optional, but if I refuse, can I continue using it at my own risk?

I'd say it's down to Microsoft what happens, since they control it in Windows. Many people expect Microsoft will delete it with a compulsory patch. This is why the answer you received before is exactly what you need: you will need to license Flash Player for redistribution from Adobe's successors in it.
