Server 2003 vpn IE7 problem

Hi everyone,
This is probably an easy answer.
Im running server 2003 R2 and on this server we have users set up for remote connections.  One of my users is running XP Pro at home.  He is using our VPN to remote into the server to do work from home.  When he uses google maps and tries to get a street view it tells him he must install Adobe Flash Player 9 or greater.  Well, Have installed Adobe Flash Player 10 on the server and when you look in the control panel it says that 10 is installed for this user, but even with 10 installed he is still getting the same error message.
Now I have Admin rights, and when I do the same as him in google maps I have no problem using the street view.  It seems to be a rights issue but I cannot give him more rights.  
Any suggestions

Thanks agian

To use street view, you need Adobe Flash Player version 9 or newer.
Get the latest Flash Player.

Hi, log in as him, right click on the installation for adobe flash, and click run as.  Type in your credentials and install the program with elevated privileges under HIS profile.

hey ace, you shouldn't have to restart at all, at the most you would just have to close all of the iexplorer.exe processes that are running on the server.  

just a heads up!

Ah good call Scott forgot about that.  I have to do a full production restart for about 15 servers and just figured I would wait until then... No since staying late on Friday when I have to go in on Sunday.  :)
