Hi Mahesh,

Please check if you have enabled the flash for chrome.

1. Go to address bar type "chrome://settings/content"

2. Locate flash

3. Check Please enable flash and add the url in allow section.

It should work. :)

Thank you Vishwa.

I have already tried this option but it didnt work.

I searched about this on Google , Some People are saying

a. Uninstall Latest version of Adobe flash player and install Previous old version of Adobe Flash player

b. Install Adobe flash player for IE on Google chrome

Please suggest me any other option except all above.



I was also facing the same problem so I have updated the flash and then added the url on chrome. It was working fine for me .

Please see check the screenshot below and cross verify with your flash player..

if it's not working for you then, Please install the PPAPI plug-in also.

Use the link below to download the latest version

This should solve your problem.

Thanks Vishwa.

Please tell me where i need to install PPAPI plug-in , in Chrome or BO Server.

If you have Link or Document to install PPAPI plug-in, Please provide me the same.


Sorry for late reply.

you need to install it to your desktop or remote desktop(wherever you are launching the dashboard.)

Chrome will automatically read it.

Please go to the mentioned link below and follow the procedure as mentioned.

( )

Select operating system and the version of flash (PPAPI for chrome) and click download.

Follow the remaining process.

Currently its a Chrome bug.

Also in the above link you may try the workaround.

Assuming the file is saved at C:\location\flash.swf

In Notepad, copy-paste the following and save the file as C:\location\object.html

<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="flash.swf" width="650" height="800"></object>
