How to enable support for Flash in Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF)

Article # 3035318 - Page views: 313


The robot needs to interact with a page using Flash, therefore this can't be done in webkit.

How can Flash be enabled in a robot using Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF)?


 To enable Flash in CEF follow the steps below:

  1. Install the Adobe Flash plugin from here:
  2. Navigate to the Kofax RPA (Kapow) installation folder. By default C:\Program Files\Kofax RPA <version> (or C:\Program Files\Kapow <version>)
  3. Navigate to \nativelib\hub\windows-x32\<id>\node_modules\cef
  4. Open cef.cfg with a text editor (that will allow edits to the file - this depends on the user's permissions)
  5. Add the following line in the cef.cfg file:

    chrome:enable-system-flash = true
  6. Save cef.cfg  (Changes will be reflected the next time CEF runs. e.g. the next CEF robot run).
