    1) The msi takes a good 90 minutes to install. The Flash 8 msi on the same machines takes less than a minute.

    2) After the msi installed, the site *still* doesn't work. Administrators access Linguascope, and pick an activity. Then, IE6 pops up with "you need to install an Active-X component", which you can click and all is well. However, this doesn't happen for non-admin users, meaning it's currently looking like I need to manually log on to all 600 machines, load a site with Flash 9 content, and click the install button. By 2.30pm tomorrow.

    IE7 is not an option.
    Something is horribly wrong then. the MSI takes about 90 seconds to install here and needs no intervention. Did you use the MSI I linked to?

    Yes, I used that MSI (although before I found this thread - it is the same link as the one I found elsewhere, and downloading the file now shows it to be identical).

    I've also tried the one Adobe linked me to when I registered - it too is the same.

    Is it possible it has something to do with having Flash 8 (the dev package) installed, maybe?

    I have 9.0.16 deployed and experienced the same issue with Linguascope. I've contacted Stephane@Linguascope and they are fixing the site now. If you take a look at the German preview site, that should be working.

    Did anyone ever solve the "only works for admins" problem with the plugin? Adobe "helpfully" acknowledge the problem, but don't offer a solution:
