Windows RT flash player tool updated, makes adding sites to your white-list a breeze

A few weeks back, we talked about a new tool for Windows RT that would allow you to easily white-list websites so that you can see Flash content in the Modern browser.

The author of the application, DroidKid, has let us know that he has updated the tool and fixed a few of the bugs that you all had been reporting. The bug that was squashed in this update was the one that would delete your saved passwords and active logins when adding a site to the white-list.

In addition to the bug squashing, he added the ability to back-up your white-list too.

While not every user may know about this or care about the white-list, some users may wish to be able to add other sites to this list so that they can view the flash content in the modern browser.

While updating the list was never difficult to begin with for experienced users, this small application makes adding sites to the white-list a simple process and will streamline the process for many users.

iirc, only Microsoft can make desktop programs for RT, .bat and .vbs are the only option. (I think)

Keep up the great work, I've added a list to the thread you have on neowin.

You are correct, .bat was the easiest. This was never intended to be faster then doing it manually. It was intended for non power users to be able to do it without having to go through hoops.

Tis true.

It takes about six hoops to make this work:

Import-IEWhiteList -Path 'pathtocsv' -DisableAutoUpdate -Force -WhatIf

Assuming someone bothered to port the .bat to Import-IEWhiteList PowerShell function already.
The best thing about PowerShell is that you have to jump through the hoops which helps you acquire the knowledge of the power you are enabling as you do so.

For what this is intended, it's a good job.

A breeze? In the CLI? Makes no sense. Why not WinForms or WPF, to begin with? It'd take just as much time (i.e. not much), and much more convenient.

It was intended for non power users to be able to do it without having to go through hoops. I never said it was super fast, its easy for the average user

your not fiddling in anything. you open up the script press option 4 type the website you want and press enter, the script does all the work.

are you implying that it is easier for a non power user to navigate to a file, attempt to tell them to look for <flash> tags then save the file, then tell them they need to clear there cookies and history? like i said this isn't intended to be used by power users.

I wish there was a way we could add multiple sites at once instead of having to do one at a time. For example, be able to copy from a CSV file we could all share!

I'm currently looking into this, check droidkid.wordpress.com and Neowin.net for the latest news. Neowin will always have the most up to date info about DroidKid Projects!
