This is a utility which allows you to whitelist flash (Enable Adobe Flash) on any website. on Metro IE
Mainly, this is intended for RT tablets, as they do not have any other way of displaying flash content.

Metro apps are installed via "Developer License"
This means that they will expire, and need to be reactivated/reinstalled. If the share
feature disappears, just rerun the installation.

Feature List:
Automates the white-listing of Flash websites using the "Share" function
Clears History, to save you the trouble of doing it manually.


This utility installs on any Windows 8 machine, Natively on x86, and on RT if jailbroken.
You need to simply share the page which has flash content (not whitelisted), and click the "Enable Flash" Icon.
The utility will download any details about the page that it can, and it will give you an option to select which ones you
want to whitelist. Once you've selected your targets,
Click the "Do it" button, and you will be given an option to clear your history.
When that's done, go back to the page and refresh. That's it! Enjoy!



NOTE: Internet Explorer automatically resets the compatibility list, which means that sites you add will stop working after a while.
Follow these steps to prevent that.
1) Go to Desktop IE
2) Press the "alt" key once. the menu bar will show up.
3) Navigate to Tools > Compatibility View Settings.
4) Deselect "Download updated compatibility lists from Microsoft"
5) Click "Close".


To Install:
Latest Version
http://barsuleo.com/enable-flash-nonet-1.0.3.zip
ADDED: Avoiding duplicate whitelisting.
ADDED Whitelist sanitization (locate/remove duplicate entries)
The new version clears ONLY your browsing history, leaving your cookies, and other desirable data in place.
Should be pretty helpful.

http://barsuleo.com/enable-flash-nonet-1.0.0.zip

Extract, then run "Install.exe"
Make sure you select Yes[y], or Run[r] through all the prompts.
Please be aware that if you want to run this on an RT Tablet, e.g. Surface, you need this jailbreak.
Enjoy!

Changes:
Changed to File-based system vs. Networking
Now it works!

Nope.
Clear history on IE and refresh the page. Should do the trick.

Great work so far!
I still keep running into some errors though:

- It seems to be searching for a whitelist-srv.exe process - only srv.exe running on my device --> communication error
- It doesn't support the germanic umlaut (ä, ö, ü) in any of the folders names (my Username)

also another button to enable flash, but without clearing browser history would be nice (e.g. "Not this time")
