Description

Enable Flash Content for Software Distribution Dashboard

This Fixlet enables Flash content for the "Software Distribution" dashboards, by adding the local file directory paths as  AllowListUrlPattern entries at \Windows\SysWow64\Macromed\Flash\mms.cfg
This allows (temporarily) the continued use of Flash-based dashboards for the Software Distribution.
 
This Fixlet assumes default cache paths for the BigFix Console, and applies the updates only for users who have previously logged on and used the BigFix Console.  It may need to be re-executed periodically to find new BigFix Console paths as additional users execute the Console.
 
For more details on this workaround to allow Flash content in the Console, please see the BigFix Forum topic at https://forum.bigfix.com/t/bigfix-flash-announcement/35218
