Enabling Flash for Oracle Enterprise Manager Express in Chrome

How to enable flash for EM Express accessing Oracle databases

Note: It should be noted that this is not a UW-Madison Help Desk or DoIT Middleware supported procedure, and, naturally, we can't take responsibility for any damage you do while following or attempting to follow these procedures. Be sure you understand what you are doing.

Enterprise Manager Express has a problem where it doesn't try to start Flash, so you are not prompted to enable running flash when you go to the site.

If you explicitly execute flash, you can enable it for the page, and then it will be fine. You can do this by inspecting the page and finding the code that runs the app in the Javascript following } else if (hasRequestedVersion) { and executing it in the Console.

The following works for me, and is probably specific to the version of EM Express and/or database, your mileage may vary.

      "src", "swf/emxLogin_c407706053.swf",
      "width", "100%",
      "height", "100%",
      "align", "middle",
      "id", "emxLogin",
      "quality", "high",
      "bgcolor", "#869ca7",
      "name", "emxLogin",
                        "flashvars", flash_vars,
                        "wmode", "opaque",
      "type", "application/x-shockwave-flash",
      "pluginspage", "http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer"
