    I don't know if this answer will be helpful to you: superuser.com/questions/1616866/… because I checked it only with online pages containing Flash content, not for local files. But maybe AllowListUrlPattern=file:/// in mms.cfg (or specifying the exact path to .swf file) will work. Alternatively, you may run the .swf file alone via standalone Flash Player. This still works and the standalone Flash Player can still be downloaded from Adobe: adobe.com/support/flashplayer/debug_downloads.html

Did you try to google something like "play flash" or "open page with flash"?

Basically just open the page in your browser. Even if it doesn't play the flash content anymore, it might allow you to download it as a new .sfw file to your desktop. Sfw files you can play with a Flash player emulator.

If that isn't working, Browserstack has an online test platform for developers to test how their content behaves in older browsers. That might work.

If that's not working either, you can download an install an older version of a browser and test with that.

If the content is a game, I'd check if it was included in BlueMaxima's Flashpoint.

  • @user1516303 Have you checked the solutions from my comment above too?

  • I don't know where is the mms.cfg file lies and how to access it. Please help Sep 10 at 9:05
  • Please note: this isn't a technical support phone line, this is a community. You don't get a single person to help you out. Consequently you shouldn't ask/answer in comments - you should edit your original posting by adding new details. Exactly which older browser/version you tried in Browserstack? What older browser/version you installed? Did you add flash player to the older version? Which Flash emulator did you try? Did you try @raj's suggestions? What exactly were the results? Upload screenshots to imgur or similar and add the links to the question. Sep 10 at 9:07

    @user1516303 I linked you a full answer with exact location of mms.cfg file and description of it's contents. Plus there are many other answers in the linked page that you can try. If you wan't to do nonstandard things (and what you want to do is nonstandard, just because Adobe decided to block Flash ;)), you have to think and try things yourself - you can't expect to have a "ready" recipe you can just "blindly" follow.
