Flash versus ActiveX


We have a small ActiveX application built into our website.

Recently we discovered that users at a certain corporate client of ours can't load the control because their security settings are too strict (and they're unable to change them because they don't have access to the Security tab in Internet Options).

We're wondering if re-writing the application in Flash would be better. Is Flash more accepted/allowed in the corporate world?

Thanks in advance,

Who is Participating?
Yes Flash is more accepted, and ActiveX is slowly becoming more and more restricted as the internet becomes more hostile.  Flash is certainly accepted in our (large) organisation.  Bear in mind though that Flash cannot function outside the browser environment for the exact same reasons as ActiveX is being restricted, so, there may be limitations in your conversion.
