Hello Merete,

The web site we having issue with is password protected. Is basicly for E-learning.
I was able to run the plugin on Firefox now but Internet Explorer not working is said loading .... and nothing happen. I try the advices you provided to me with no luck.

Windows 7  may require you to make a decision and make IE 9 default
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
Installing the Macromedia Authorware Web Player
Hello Expert,

We finally got issue resolved by disabling protected mode under security tab in Internet explorer.

Hadn'tt thought of that cforp
I also dis-abled protected mode straightup when IE9 was upgraded
Glad you found the solution
