Problem to install Adobe Authorware player

Hi Experts,

I got an issue to install Adobe Authorware player under Internet Explorer.
I was not able to install the first time and I was getting error loading, I try to install again and works but when I play content from website I got a bar and nothing happen with the player. The system is under Windows 7.

Any advices ?

Hello Merete,

The web site we having issue with is password protected. Is basicly for E-learning.

Windows 7  may require you to make a decision and make IE 9 default
browser
Open internet explorer options>settings>then go to view Objects
If it is listed >delete the Authorware web Player control
Exit and reboot your computer
Then go here and download the Authorware Player
