MS Windows SteadyState – Steady State – Flash9d.ocx

Well I was using Windows SteadyState to setup a kiosk computer so I can finish it with the least administrative effort.  Unfortunately, what appeared to be an easy task during out to be a pain in the ass…..well….at least for one configuration setting.  My task was to allow access to one website and one website ONLY.  I did that but since our website contains a slideshow using Adobe Flash Player.  I must have have blind the first 15 times I scrolled through the settings but I finally figured it out.  This also works with any other ActiveX controls or plug-ins besides adobe flash player.

Here’s what you need to do!

*Logon to the computer using local administrator rights

*Start SteadyState (remember to have admin rights!)

*Click the user account you are working with under “User Settings”

*Select the “Feature Restrictions” tab

*Under “Internet Explorer Restrictions” make sure “Third Party Extension Buttons” is no selected.

*Now logout and login using the user accounts with the problem.
