We've worked around problem for now by uninstalling latest Flash, installing version 25 from https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/archived-flash-player-versions.html, and using Firefox.
This has allowed SAS VA via Firefox to work as normal, but you can't force Chrome (and possibly IE) to use a previous version.
We've come across the same problems in SAS VA today as well, with the addition of not being able to tick more than one filter at a time in a prompt container without closing the container first in Report Viewer.
On the report designer issues, I can click and drag another item into the report (object or data) after deleting an object in the report (has to be deleted, won't work if cancel out of that dialog)
Does anyone know of a way to start the public and lasr servers manually (without the flash tool)? Maybe with Management Console or code?
I switched everything to modern so users can view their reports but I can’t start the servers without the flash tool, ha ha.
You can do that with code, this link might be helpful.

As well as the Firefox solution using v25.x of NPAPI flash player and 'Precision' workaround.
I also note that uninstalling Windows update KB4022730 (on Windows 10) reverts IE11's and Edge's flash player to v22.0.0.0209.
This also appears to workaround the issue (although I accept that it may not be desirable to go back to such an early version of the flash player for many).
Note that Microsoft hasn't yet signed/approved the release for IE and Edge on Windows 8 and 10 (and apparently also relevant for Windows Server 2012). The impact also seems to occur in the current release 184.108.40.206 on these environments.
