    Distribute Shockwave with Backwards Compatibility mode On?

    During our recent rebuilding of our domain, we installed the latest versions of everything, including shockwave player. Music teacher has just reported errors using the BBC radio 3 making tracks composer http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio3/makingtracks/ which runs in shockwave. When the students call it up, shockwave tries to install 'compatibility componants' which obviously fails because the students don't have the necessary rights to complete the installation. Turns out this is to do with backwards compatibility with older shockwave versions, and is stupidly turned off by default unless you specifically turn it on when you install shockwave - we didn't.

    Anyone know of a way of remotely installing shockwave with 'backwards compatility' mode turned on to save me re-imaging everything just to get rid of this one irritating error?

    Mike.
