Subject RE: Links with UNC path names stops working in Flash Player 14
Date Mon, 08 Sep 2014 20:55:09 GMT
I believe I am experiencing the same problem, or one very similar to it.  We have FlexUnit
tests that access resources via HTTP on a server different from the one hosting the test SWF.
 I was using Flash Player version 11.8 previously, and these tests worked fine without any
special setup.  I recently upgraded the player/plugin to 14.0, and then the problems started.
Each URL access appears to throw a SecurityErrorEvent with ErrorID=2048 (pop-up dialog). 
This is a release player (PepperFlash is all we have on Linux now), so I don't have a stack
trace or much debugging information.

Like "gpi" said, I also tried using the global security settings to "always allow" access,
but it did not help.  I would welcome any help with this.  Suggestions?
