Opt-In Flash Player? RRS feed

  • Question

  • How do we opt-in Flash player?? I can't find a binary to opt-in in the first place and when I thought about this, it would seem possible that since Flash gets invoked by a browser (IE, FF, etc.), Flash might be covered by the browser being Opt'd-In.  Is this the case or is a specific way to opt-in Flash player??  TIA!

  • As Flash is an Active-X Component it is subject to the same mitigations you have configured for it's host program Internet Explorer.

    There is no executable to include. However if you use Firefox you should add plugincontaienr.exe to your configuration and test.

  • So no need to specify "C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\FlashUtil64_11_5_502_124_ActiveX.exe", "C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\FlashUtil32_11_5_502_124_ActiveX.exe" etc.?

    I notice the broker task

    "C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\FlashUtil32_11_5_502_124_ActiveX.exe" -embedded

    gets NOT opted in, even if added to the list. Is all this perfectly normal? Thanks.
