I have been working with Director in Authorware for many
years. Recently, the Shockwave Player was updated to the 10.2
version and this new version has been causing me some difficulties.
I don't seem able to erase the ActiveX control after using a 3D
movie. When I try to erase the ActiveX control I am left with an
unusable white rectangle that matches the dimensions of the
Shockwave ActiveX. I have tried numerious methods to resolve this
issue but to no avail. I even tried moving the ActiveX offscreen

ActiveX fail (I still see a loading screen and then a blank white
space when I run it twice). I am wondering if anybody has any
insight into how to resolve this issue? Has anybody else
encountered this issue?
