I've searched google, bing, and this site trying to find an answer to my problem with no luck.  Either I'm blind or I'm missing something.  We have non-admin users that need to use sites that take advantage of the IE9 Shockwave Add-On.  Every time they go to the site, they get the yellow bar asking to allow, problem being non-admin can't allow it.  Since we can't make them admin's and they are supervised, is there a way to push a registry key that would Allow Shockwave to run on all sites without admin permissions.  I know I can allow it from within IE on an admin user, but that does not help me out.


Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

  • Thank you for the link, but that is already set on the image.

  • Why haven't you deployed the Shockwave plugin to the users via your normal software deployment method?

  • It is already deployed on the image that is on these machines. Apparently this is something that did not pop up before so was not set on the image.  It means a fix as I'm trying to avoid reimaging.

Not sure if you found a solution to this but you can try this.


If you open manage add-ons in internet explorer. Then from the drop down select all add-ons.

Once you do this, scroll down the list of add-ons until you find the one you want. Double click to upen the properties menu. Look for the Class ID line:

Then you can create a bat script or whatever to add the following key the the HCU registry.
HCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Ext\Stats\<ClassID of plugin>\Iexplore\AllowedDomains\*
In turn you can load the default user ntuser.dat file using the reg load command and add it to that so new users get it from the get go.
