Scripting Question

How do I allow Shockwave to run on all sites for non-admin users?

02/13/2013 7043 views

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.
