Install activex control for all users logging into a Windows 2008 r2 RDS server

I have an internal web site that requires an active-x control.  With 2003, I could access the site as an administrator (and with the server in install mode), install the active-x control, and then all other users could access the site without install the activex control.  

In 2008 r2, I cannot do that.  The users are still asked to install the activex control.  

How can I install the activex control so that other users don't have to install.

From my experience you have to install active-x in all the workstations all users will have to install it.

That is my experiencing also; however, this is not a workstation.  It's Windows 2008 r2 w/ RDS.

I still have to run active x on our server that has Windows 2008 r2.
Other than that I have no idea.

I've resolve the problem.  We redirect their desktops, and the user already had a shortcut to IE that point to ...\Program FIles\, which was from a 32-bit server.  When we migrated the user to the new one, which is 64-bit, it was opening the 64-bit browser, not 32-bit.  Changing the users shortcut to point to ...\Program Files (x86)\ resolved the issue.
