I have been asked to block the installation of the Adobe Connect Add-in for security reasons and I am looking into the below configuration option posted on the Flash Player Administration Guide.
DisableProductDownload = [ 0, 1 ] (0 = false, 1 = true)
If this value is set to 0 (the default), Flash Player can install native code applications that are digitally signed and delivered by Adobe. Adobe uses this capability to deliver Flash Player updates through the developer-initiated Express Install process, and to deliver the Adobe Acrobat Connect screen-sharing functionality. If this value is set to 1, these capabilities are disabled.
I used this feature with Adobe Flash Player 10.3 and tried installing the add-in from Step 4 HERE and it worked.
I was expecting the download to fail since DisableProductDownload was set to 1.
Is Adobe Connect Add-in not a product by Adobe? Is the documentation incorrect? What am I missing?
Any help will be greatly appreciated
Could you create a bug report on this over at bugbase.adobe.com? It appears that DisableProductDownload might be broken. Please post back with the bug number so that others impacted can add their votes and comments.
Thanks for the reply. I have filed a bug report as requeted.
I hope this feature gets corrected soon, considering the ammount of security vulnerabilities identified in periodically in Flash Player, this would really help to mitigate some risks.
Thank you Ernesto. I'd like to encorage anyone affected by this issue to take a minute and cast a vote for this bug!
