Flash 10.1 and above can't create folders and files for settings/cache
|Reported by:||dmik||Owned by:|
Flash should store local security settings and shared objects in the \var\lib\odin\Application Data\Macromedia Flash Player directory. If it is unable to store or read the contents of this directory (and its subdirectories), it will cause error #2060 (and sometimes the subsequent error #2134).
On Windows, this directory (and all necessary subdirectories) gets re-created by the Flash plugin as needed. Shared objects are stored in a subdirectory #SharedObjects?\NNNNNNNN\site.name, security settings -- in macromedia.com\somestuff\site.name.
On OS/2, Flash versions starting from 10.1 do not create any directories there at all (I don't even see a call to CreateDirectory?? in Odin logs). Flash 10.0.x creates the directory structure but it is still unable to create NNNNNNNN in #SharedObjects?? (where N is a digit or a capital letter). If I create the NNNNNNNN directory by hand (or transfer the whole Flash Player structure from the Windows machine), Flash 10.0.x starts working fine with the IKEA movie (and it stores some stuff in there). Flash 10.1 and above still doesn't work.
As far as I can judge from the logs, they changed something in Flash regarding to the code that creates the directory structure and walks it, as the sequence of API calls is completely different starting from version 10.1. There is not enough information to figure out what's wrong though. Most likely, we don't implement some functionality but nothing in the logs suggests what exactly is missing.
Note that Flash 10.0 and the manually created directory only cure the IKEA site. The mouse clicks (ticket:34) and embedded videos (ticket:57) still don't work. Must be something different. Bad that the debug version of Flash shows nothing in these cases.
