How to make flash work on IE or Edge with IE Compatibility

With flash been ended from 1-Jan-2021, many applications using flash have stopped working the way they were built (like OEM, OBIEE, etc). The option you have to upgrade.

 This method will give a workaround in IE or Edge in IE compatibility mode without upgrading.

1. Verify you have installed flash.ocx on your desktop.
Typically, flash.ocx file is located in C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash or C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash according to your laptop OS system.

2. Edit mms.cfg from the location as a System Administrator
In the case of the 64bit system, it might have mms.cfg under C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash

3. Add below options into mms.cfg file. Note: AllowListUrlPattern list is an example. The URLs need to be replaced to your hosts those have Flash pages.


NOTE : AllowListUrlPattern=*://*.<>/
In my case I used AllowListUrlPattern=http://funoracleapps.lab:7002/

4. Save mms.cfg

5. Run Internet Explorer 11 from your laptop

6. Test the flash page.
