EPC flashplayer problems

Post by Astra-Fan » Mon May 03, 2021 7:18 pm

Hello Friends,

The flashplayer was turned off at the end of the year. Does anyone have a tip for me on how I can get EPC up and running now

Thank you in advance
Mark

This was the Vx temporary solution,try it.it may still work for you

The Vauxhall Electronic Parts Catalogue (EPC) uses Adobe Flash as one of its main technologies. You may be aware that Adobe and
Microsoft have announced that they will remove Flash functionality early in 2021, which will stop the EPC from working.
In order for the EPC to continue to use Adobe Flash player after 12th January, all PCs that access the EPC need to make a change to the Flash configuration file.
Instructions which must be performed before 25th December 2020
Instructions
STEP 1 Adobe Flash should NOT be uninstalled as this will stop EPC working.
STEP 2 The Adobe Flash configuration file needs to be modified on the PC
This mms.cfg file is located in one or both of the following directories for each client PC that will use the EPC.
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\mms.cfg
C:\windows\system32\Macromed\Flash\mms.cfg
STEP 3 Using a text editor (e.g. Notepad) application, edit this file.
The lines below need to be added or modified in the mms.cfg file:
AutoUpdateDisable=1
SilentAutoUpdateEnable=0
EOLUninstallDisable=1
EnableAllowList=1
WhitelistUrlPattern=https://spongepc.opel.com
Save the file
NOTE: This fix has been tested with Internet Explorer and will continue to work until Microsoft issues a patch in summer 2021 which
will remove Adobe Flash completely, by this time we will have an alternative solution
