Installing Flash Media Rights Management Server

You can install Flash Media Rights Management Server only on a U.S. operating system. Other languages are not supported.

Back to Contents

Launching the Flash Media Rights Management Server installer from a command line

If you launch the Flash Media Rights Management Server installer from a command line, you must change the working directory to where the executable file resides, otherwise, the LiveCycle ES and Service Pack installers will not launch automatically.

Back to Contents

Upgrading from Flash Media Rights Management Server 1.0

When you upgrade from Flash Media Rights Management Server 1.0 to version 1.0.1, ignore the "Incompatible Product Version" errors during the installation of LiveCycle ES.

Uninstaller not working for Unicode path

It is recommended that you do not install Flash Media Rights Management Server to a path that contains Unicode (UTF-8) characters (for example, C:\โโโโโโ\Adobe\FMRMS1.0). Otherwise, if you try to uninstall the product later, the system displays the message "Unable to load the launcher file index. Cannot open launcher file."

Rights Manager does not correctly display results

Rights Manager may not correctly display results if the policy.maxresults value in the fmrmstools.properties file is set to a low value. The workaround is to specify a policy.maxresults value larger than the total number of policies on the server.

Using double-byte characters for command line arguments

Avoid using double-byte characters for any of the command line arguments for all the command line tools (Rights Manager, Media Packager, and AMOD Signer). Due to a Java™ bug, double-byte characters may not be correctly interpreted.

Media Packager cannot run from within high ASCII/double-byte path

It is recommended that you do not install Media Packager to an ASCII/double byte path that contains characters above 0xFF. Doing so prevents you from running Media Packager. The system displays the error message "Exception in thread main java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/adobe/drm/FLVPackager".

Back to Contents

Media Packager cannot package files in a high ASCII/double-byte path

It is recommended that you package files to a path that does not contain high ASCII/double-byte characters above 0xFF. Otherwise, Media Packager cannot package the file and displays the error:

java.io.IOException: Invalid argument
 at java.io.WinNTFileSystem.canonicalize0(Native Method)
 at java.io.Win32FileSystem.canonicalize(Unknown Source)
 at java.io.File.getCanonicalPath(Unknown Source)
 at com.adobe.drm.FLVPackager.processFile(FLVPackager.java:503)
 at com.adobe.drm.FLVPackager.main(FLVPackager.java:707)

Adobe Media Player cannot validate playlist

When you create a playlist, you specify the default namespace within the head element:

<smil xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2005/SMIL21/Language">

Do not redefine the default namespace in the body element. Doing so will invalidate the signature and prevent Adobe Media Player from validating the playlist.

When JBoss® is configured to use OpenSSL, the Adobe AIR™ client running on Windows® Vista™ may have SSL connectivity issues. To resolve these issues, install the Windows Vista hotfix on the client. For more information, see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/933228.
