The port used for remote actions is defined in the following parameter:
RemoteControlPort="8000". Change 8000 with the port you'd prefer to use.
Beware: this parameter is only available for player version >= 6.3.3. Using this parameter with previous version will crash the player at launch time without any error message.
To avoid displaying a crash report window generated by a Player for Windows, the tag
<IntuifacePlayerConfiguration CrashWindowType="Default"> must be modified to
<IntuifacePlayerConfiguration CrashWindowType="Default" SilentCrashReport="true">.
The crash report window is deactivated by default.
If you want to re-activate the display of the crash report window, the tag
<IntuifacePlayerConfiguration CrashWindowType="Default"> must be modified into
<IntuifacePlayerConfiguration CrashWindowType="Default" SilentCrashReport="false">.
