After installing Shockwave and then pulling up a web page that has a Shockwave presentation, it will prompt you to register the plug-in. Does anyone know how to bypass this? We have found if you remove / modify certain registry keys / values after installing the plug-in, you can get it to where the register window will not pop-up. The problem occurs once again when you have a different user log in to the same machine.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

How are you deploying it and what are you using to create the package? I created a package 1 package for Shockwave and Flash both with WinInstall LE 2003. I just did a before snap shot, went to the flash and shockwave sites, it asked me to install the software to see the page, I said yes, and it was installed. I then did a after snapshot and wala. I haven't deployed this much but if I remember right I didn't get any register screens when I tested it.

You won't continue to get the register screen if you are logged in as the same user. It's when you create a new profile, i.e. a different person logs in to the same machine. The first time they go to a page with a shockwave presentation, they will get prompted to register.
