Weird Shockwave Problem - Installed, but won't work!
We are experiencing a problem with Adobe Shockwave. A science teacher is trying to run a couple of science related shockwave movies and gets the following error everytime:
When you click OK you get another similar error and the bit I have highlighted in bold changes to "Text" and again to "Vector Shape".
Director Player Error:
This application requires an Xtra (Flash Movie...) that either does not exist or failed to initialize properly. Please make sure the appropriate Xtras are in the Xtras folder(s).
Then you get the following error:
The weird issue is that the problem is not occuring on all the PCs. I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling Shockwave and Flash, rebuilt the PC and still no luck. It works fine as Administrator, but not as a regular user. Adobe's Shockwave page says it is sucessfully installed.
This Shockwave movie has errors that have caused playback problems
Please contact the author of this content regarding this problem,
Shockwave is unable to continue.
I looked on a PC where the movie was working and noticed there were a lot more "Xtras" in "C:Windows\System32\Adobe\Shockwave 11\Xtras" so I copied the Xtras over to the PC with the problem. I now don't get errors but I get the Adobe Shockwave splash logo with the progress bar and the progress bar never fills.
Installed Firefox and tried running from there but it complains that Shockwave is not installed even when I try to reinstall it.
Any ideas? I'm totally baffled! I've given the teacher Full Controll of the Windows folder as a test, but still no luck.
