Following the Adobe Flash EOL (End of life) on the 12th of Jan 2021. The JEPC is no longer showing parts images.
Obviously this is due to Adobe blocking flash content in the applet. This effects all uses of Flash, local and otherwise.
Will update when I have mine unblocked.
Thanks.

Ok, wasn't that tricky.
  • Copy this Flash directory (C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash for 32-bit, C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash for 64-bit) to somewhere with write permission;
  • Use a hex editor to open Flash.ocx;
  • Search for the hexadecimal string 000040463E6F7742 (the timestamp) and replace it with 000000000000F87F;
  • Save the file;
  • Rename the original Flash directory to Flash.bak or something;
  • Copy the Flash directory with the modified binary back to its original location as above.
Be careful though, this will restore Flash, which is EOL. Local use for things like; JEPC is fine.
There may be a better solution using some sort of whitelist exception.....

UPDATE-- USE This, it is the official way from the Adobe developers manual and much easier.

In short, you need to create a file called mms.cfg which should be located in the following directory, depending on operating system (if the directory does not exist, create it):

on Linux - /etc/adobe
on 64-bit Windows - C:\Windows\SysWow64\Macromed\Flash
on 32-bit Windows - C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash
(of course if you installed Windows in a different directory than C:\Windows, change the paths appropriately)

on MacOS - /Library/Application Support/Macromedia

To allow local Flash content to run, you need to put in the mms.cfg file the following:

AllowListUrlPattern=file:///

You could also reference just the JEPC data folder if you prefer.

For Windows 10 users. Step by step

1. Open any documents folder
2. Right click and create new text file
3. Call that file mms (File would now be mms.txt in reality)
4. Click the view tab and then tick the option for See file name extensions
5. Now you can rename the file from mms.txt to mms.cfg
6. Copy this file to the location given above for your version of Windows.
