My organization often makes Adobe Flash Player unavailable. When this happens nobody can access any web reports or BI Studio. This is a major inconvenience. I was wondering if there is an alternative or a way of making another flash player the default. I don't see anything posted on this topic anywhere so I think it's unlikely but I am hopeful.

The only option I can think of is to move to SAS Visual Analytics where the Modern Viewers use HTML5 not the Flash Player. Web Report Studio is pretty much a legacy product now and has been superseded by SAS VA. Probably not what you want to hear if you have a big investment in WRS.

It is very good practice, securitywise, to prevent the use of Flash Player. That piece of crapware needs to be exterminated with maximum prejudice.


I'm baffled that SAS still relies on it.

I think I didn't actually need Flash Player for WRS... I just needed it for BI studio.

But my question is still relevant to BI studio.

I am inquiring but I don't think so. If I am, however, do I not need Adobe Flash Player or is there an alternative?
