Two users have said that when selecting any option it says "duplicate files exists or cannot find file" I will have this fixed in the next release I have found the root cause,
however here is a temporary workaround

1. Open the run command and type %temp% and delete anything inside that folder (this will clear your temp directory)
2. Now run the script again and you should not have any issues.
Please report any bugs I will attempt to resolve them ASAP.
Thank you guys for all your support, I will update this thread as soon as the new release is available

The videos may be hosted on another site you need to add that site as well

Question...

Are you able to create a specific tool that automates this process for a certain site? Or maybe add an option within the current tool?

Many many colleges use a website called MyMathLab or MyLabsPlus to assign homework assignments. This website uses Flash but is not on Microsoft's whitelist (and apparently are in no hurry to do so since I contacted their tech support team to let them know that it's not working for me... they said it would be about 8 months before they started supporting 8/RT).

I was able to get it to work by doing some research and figuring out what sites need to be manually added to the whitelist... it's a list of like 15 sites that the main site references.

I purchased my Surface RT tablet for this very purpose, I wanted to be able to do my math homework from it... but I was disappointed to find out that it didnt work (without me jumping through hoops).

If you're able to do this, I can get the list of sites to you, otherwise it's ok. I appreciate the work you've put into the Whitelist Flash Tool!

Hey what I can do is add thoes 15 sites to the custom list option if you like? since I know a lot of colleges and school use it. :)

*******Also to anyone else if you have a list of websites that are not in the custom list let me know i will add them*********

Sure, I added these sites to my whitelist:

<domain>northlakecollege.edu</domain>
<domain>cengage.com</domain>
<domain>coursecompass.com</domain>
<domain>ecollege.com</domain>
​<domain>mathxl.com</domain>
<domain>myitlab.com</domain>
<domain>mylabsplus.com</domain>
<domain>mymathlab.com</domain>
<domain>mypearson.com</domain>
<domain>pearsoncmg.com</domain>
<domain>pearsoned.com</domain>
<domain>safeassign.com</domain>
<domain>interactmath.com</domain>

I believe that's all that's needed for it to work. I also had to disable the pop up blocker for each one of those sites, but that's a whole different issue that's not related to the Flash Whitelist tool. The first domain is for my college... so I assume it's not necessarily needed, it's up to you to add it or not.

Edit: Here's a PDF showing instructions and the list of domains from a different college: http://centralaz.edu...serSettings.pdf
