Tweak to enable Flash websites in IE Metro Browser on Windows 8 and RT

surface

Those using Windows 8 and RT must have seen the limited ability of its IE browser when it comes to supporting flash websites.  While it may not make a big difference for many, for some it will surely be a big deal.  Considering the limitation in mind, one of the renowned developers from XDA, Marvin_S has come up with a way to cross the barrier and enjoy limitless browsing even in the flash websites.  Right before your browsing session, do an XMP tweak and that will be all that you need to do for gaining access to all flash based sites.

To enable this tweak, one necessarily needs to open C:\Users\[USER_NAME]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\IECompatData\iecompatdata.xml.

Because of the very simple procedure, no one is going to have troubles in tweaking XML file.  Even though this method of tweaking is not believed to be working with the desktop version of Windows 8, but the Windows RT seems to be working fine as per the latest release by Microsoft. It surely will open the doors of improvements as most popular websites are flash based and a browser not supporting such websites will not suit the excellent features of this device.
