Flash Automation

Post by udayraju92 » Mon Apr 16, 2018 4:33 am

Is it possible to Automate Flash application without making changes to the Application Source Code and adding the Ranorex libraries?

We have been given access to only a URL and the credentials to automate?

Please let us know your comments

Thanks in advance

Hi udayraju92,

Yes, you can automate a Flash/Flex application without modifying the source by using the PreLoader method of instrumentation. Note, this requires the Adobe Debug Flash Player, which is only available on Windows 8.1 or older, meaning you cannot use this method in Windows 10. Unfortunately, it appears Adobe will never release a Windows 10 debug player. To automate Flash/Flex applications in Windows 10, you must instrument through source code.

I hope this helps!

Kind Regards,
Ned
