Interact Xpress Manager version 4.2 was released in December 2020. This version no longer relies on Adobe Flash Player.
In February of 2021, Microsoft release Windows Update KB4577586. This update also had unintentional consequences for Interact Xpress Manager 4.2
After applying Windows Update KB4577586, Interact Xpress Manager 4.2 has stopped working and give an error that Flash Player is not installed.
Here is the workaround:
The above link is a file named FlashFix.txt. Change the extension to .bat and right-click. Select Run as Administrator.
NOTE: You must run the batch file as an administrator or it will not work correctly.
After running the batch file, you should get two dialog boxes. The first stating that the Dll unregister succeeded and the second that the dll register succeeded:
If this doesn't work, check with your IT department that you have admin rights and it's not being blocked by User Access Policy.
There are two actions in the file. The first action unregisters the Parker replacement Flash Player. The second action re-registers the Parker Flash Player.
This has shown to fix the issue caused by the Windows Update.
