    Flash Player not working on Terminal Server Client - no help and support through adobe

    mik_schreiber
      I've installed Flash on a windows 2003 Terminal Server. If a user opens a site --> no flash content is displayed.
      Only administrators will see the flash content. The problem is, how the flashplayer ist installed by adobe.
      i got it running for one user but it takes a lot of work.

      Workaround:
      - you have to download the flashplayer (as ".msi"),
      - you have to add each user in the group of admins
      - then install the flashplayer
      - modify the rights of flashplayer in the registry (everyone read)
      - remove the user from the group of admins.
      THIS IS NOT USEABLE IF YOU HAVE A LOT OF USERS

      i believe it is a bug in the installation of flashplayer which should be fixed through adobe
      and hope that i will get support through the adobe moderators in this forum
      BECAUSE if you call the hotline then you get an answer:

      ADOBE DO NOT SUPPORT SERVERS, ADOBE DO NOT SUPPORT FLASHPLAYER THROUGH HOTLINE

      DEAR ADOBE THEN I DO NOT SUPPORT ADOBE PRODUCTS AS CONSULTANT

      ..business customers are using your flashplayer and if your support is acting in this way then i would advise all my business customers to buy NO ADOBE products. I will also advise to do not use flash in their web content because business customers using Terminal server clients cannot see the web content.
