    AppScan Enterprise wasn't able to load the movie for various
    reasons. One was that the movie contained a problematic GUI
    instance that kept changing and this interfered with
    AppScan's process of learning how the movie works and
    getting full coverage.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A new engine option was added:
    EXECUTE_FLASH_EXCLUDE_INSTANCES_TARGETS. This option defines
    problematic GUI instances that should be excluded from Flash
    scans. Fixed in version 8.7
    

Temporary fix
