    Shockwave only works for Admin users

    I've been banging my head against a brick wall with this problem for a while now.
    I have Shockwave 11 installed (MSI via GP), with no apparent errors. However, going to the Shockwave test page as a non-admin just shows a black box, yet if I go there as an admin it says it's installed and the latest version.
    I had the same problem with previous v11 and also v10 installs. (The last time it worked was aaaaaaages ago, and I don't want to go back to an old version)
    Any ideas?

    does it work when you install locally and not through GPO?

    This appears to be a known issue with Adobe

    I recently posted a link in this thread (ie7 not playing swf files (any ideas)) about a possible solution concerning permissions

    I haven't tried. But local install on 500+ PCs isn't an option
