Poser 12 and 10 and flash EOL
« on: January 20, 2021, 03:11:24 PM »
How to fix your Runtime now that Adobe Flash has reached end of life

Adobe didn't just end support of Flash on Dec. 31, 2020, it killed it.The company suggested uninstalling the program after Dec. 31, 2020, because Adobe will not issue Flash Player updates or security patches. And then on Jan 12, 2021 Adobe blocked Flash content from running "to help secure your system." Not only did this impact major web browsers by disabling Flash Player content, but it also blocked the libraries from loading in Poser 10 and earlier versions and stopped Reality in Poser from working.
This is because Poser 10 used AIR, a form of Adobe Flash, to manage your runtime.
We have found a few ways around the death of Flash that will repopulate your runtimes, so you can keep creating.
 Fixing Adobe Flash in Poser 10
 Option 1
This is the option Poser Support recommends.
First, open Poser.
Then, go to edit > edit > general preferences > library and change library to external.

 Option 2 Renderosity community member bagginsbill found this fix way back in 2014.
First, close Poser.
Next, find your poser.ini file, which is likely in this location: C:/Users/YOURUSERNAME/AppData/Roaming/Poser/10. It could be in AppData/Roaming/Poser Pro/VERSIONNUMBER.
(If you are fearful of editing the file, simply right-click the Poser.ini file, choose Copy then right click again and choose Paste. This will make a backup of your Poser.ini file. Then, you can then edit the original Poser.ini file itself. If anything goes wrong you can delete the edited Poser.ini file and rename the copy back to the original name.)
Then, in poser.ini look for LIBRARY_EMBEDDED_TYPE 0. (Open the Poser 10 file folder, click on the Poser icon at the bottom, to find the Configuration settings.) This will pop up a menu, and find LIBRARY_EMBEDDED_TYPE 0. Change the zero to a 1 and save the file. If your libraries in Poser 2014 stopped working, change LIBRARY_IS_AIR from 1 to 0.
Finally, open Poser and your libraries will populate. The only difference is that the Libraries palette may be in white.

 Option 3

Upgrade to a more recent version of Poser.

Poser 11 and Poser 12 are not reliant on Adobe Flash at all.
For a limited time, we have released Poser 11 from the vault for $99.99. In addition to fixing the Adobe Flash problem without you having to edit files, it also comes with over $900 in FREE downloadable content, gives users access to the functions that were formerly restricted to Poser Pro versions and introduces the SuperFly Render engine based on Cycles. Get Poser 11 here.
Or you could jump versions to Poser 12.
The newest version of Poser updates the SuperFly render engine based on Blender's Cycles 1.12. SuperFly's new Adaptive Sampling improves render speed and quality by detecting render noise and focusing on noisy areas. The new render engine gives improved compositing capabilities with its new shadow catcher objects and background transparency.
Poser 12 also adds support for Nvidia's raytracing hardware, Intel OIDN, an A.I. based image denoising system, a new post effects palette for denoise and more, and Python 3 scripting for improved security and stability. And it continues support for Firefly render engine and legacy content, La Femme and L'Homme, and more.
If you aren't sure, try the 21-day full feature, free trial. Download it here.
 
Option 4

Options 1 and 2 do not work for users of Poser 7 through 9 were also affected.

These users and any other affected users can fix the issue by installing a third-party library manager.
If you want to go this route, we suggest P3DO by yarp. It's available in the Renderosity MarketPlace (HERE) for $24.95. There is also a limited free version (HERE).
P3DO is a multimedia tool for viewing and managing your CG assets, 3D objects, 3D animations, and digital pictures with a simple, intuitive, thumb-nailed interface. It works in all versions of Poser along with other 3D program library managers.
For Poser users, the program acts as a Libraries browser, creating thumbnails, Runtime shortcuts, and colored directory nodes from internal and external runtimes. The browser displays your content in an Explorer-style window.
You can read more about yarp and P3DO HERE.

Just an addition to option 4 (not available at Renderosity, which is why they probably didn't mention it ... I am not impressed):
Advanced library for Poser (Freeware)
http://neocron.webspaceforme.net/library/downloads/


(And an aside to Option 3: Poser 11 and 12 may not be reliant on Adobe Flash, but they ARE reliant on a constant internet connection or they stop working)

Edited to add: thank you for putting this here as an Announcement for everybody ... I am just not really impressed with Bondware.

That's why since they own Poser 11 and I made the mistake to update my version I'm back to Poser 10. I generally don't use internet connection on the comp where P10 and P11 are.
DS3, Poser, Wings3d, PD Artist, FlowScape, Photoshop, Ivy Generator, Sculptris, DS4, Bryce... I can't choose! :)

There is a possibility to ask them for an extended period without checking the internet ... don't ask me how it works, but they said they can do it.

I refused buying PoserPro 2014 GameDev because SmithMicro added that ... unfortunate part of the software (hey, I am trying to be polite).
And I do have Poser 5, 7, 8, PP2012 and PP2014 - not a sign of somebody who dislikes Poser.

You are more polite than me, believe me ;)
I wouldn't stay polite with them if I asked for. I know they can extend the period for 1 year. But I guess you need to never turn off your comp, nor cut the internet connection. No, I pass my turn on that. I have specific IDs for my P11 (like everyone), I needed to be connected to make them working, and it's easily checkable by them to see how many computers are working with the same IDs.

And in case you need, probably more than one member here will be pleased to help you!

With the extension (I am not sure about one year ...) you don't have to leave your computer running and you don't need an internet connection during that time.
