mms.cfg - LocalFileLegacyAction=1 Does not apply

May 27, 2009 2:14 AM

Trying to deploy a change to prevent the error:

 

"Flash Player has stopped a potentially unsafe operation....The following application XXXXX is trying to communicate with this Internet Enabled location XXXXXXX.htm...."

 

when running a captivate presentation from a server on a local network using a html link. If I manually change the flash settings to Allow then this resolves the issue but using the mms.cfg as per the admin guide and adding LocalFileLegacyAction=1, it does not resolve the issue and the warning keeps popping up.

 

The documentation says:

 

If this value is set to 1 (the most permissive setting), Flash Player behaves as though users had elected to place all older local SWF files into the local-trusted sandbox.

 

 

Flash Player administrators can use several options in the mms.cfg configuration file to restrict users' ability to make these security choices.

 

The LegacyDomainMatching and LocalFileLegacyAction options control Flash Player's behavior in the situations where, respectively, the domain matching or local security dialogs would be displayed. There is only a single user control (Ask/Allow/Deny) for both of these situations, but you can specify different options for each of them using these two mms.cfg options.

The AllowUserLocalTrust option controls users' ability to add individual paths to the local-trusted sandbox.

Any ideas why using this might not work or am I doing this wrong ??

thanks

    Thank you for your report.

     

    I'm glad to inform you that this has been fixed in the Flash Player and will be part of an upcoming release.

     

    In the meantime, please use allow or deny as opposed to 0 or 1 in the mms.cfg for the LocalFileLegacyAction property.

     

    Thanks,

    -Stephen
