Lesson 1: Assign trust designations

In this lesson, you assign trust designations to enable the file to be trusted.

About this task

To test the application from a local test computer, the application-under-test has to be a trusted application. The paths to individual files or directories can be assigned trust designations. This renders that all the files in each selected directory and any of its subdirectories are trusted.

To assign trust designations:


  1. Create a folder named FlashPlayerTrust in C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash.
  2. Create a file named Flex without any file extension.
  3. Enter the path of the Flex application in the Flex file.
  4. Save the file.
    Note: After completing this lesson, proceed to Lesson 3 if you are testing Flex 3.x applications. If you are testing Flex 4.0 applications, specify security settings for the application before proceeding to Lesson 3. For instructions to do this, see Lesson 2.
