    Is new Flash player preventing launching of Exe's using System.product?

    M_O_E
      Ever since I discovered this method back in 2002, I used the following code to execute an exe from the flash player:

      var app = new System.product("myapp");
      app.Launch();

      Of course, this was an undocumented way to launch an application (used by Breeze/Acrobat Connect) as explained here:

      All of the suddden, latest releases of flash player 9 are preventing my app from launching. The method is still in existence as Adobe is still using it for their Acrobat Connect plugin (Breeze). So, my question is, are there any new security changes or anything that can explain why these methods are failing to launch non Adobe Exe's now?
