KioWare - Kiosk System Software - FAQs

Q : Flash content only loads once inside KioWare Lite

A : There can be several causes of this behavior:
First ensure that the Browser Emulation mode setting on the Browser tab matches the installed Internet Explorer version,
unless you normally load the page using Internet Explorer's Compatibility View.

If the Flash loads again after having KioWare Lite Clear the Cache and Cookies, there is a workaround as noted on Adobe's bug. Warning: The workaround below forces the Flash files to be re-downloaded at every view, which may substantially increase the amount of bandwidth used by the kiosk. If you encounter this bug and the workaround resolves your issue, please vote on the Adobe bug so they can get an accounting of how much of a problem this is.
