A user has Windows 8 64 Bit and IE 10. Adobe flash is built in and should run automatically. It WORKS when the user runs IE 10 in the Windows 8 Modern UI. However, when she tries to load the same page in IE 10 desktop mode it tells her she needs to load Adobe. When she goes to the Adobe flash site it brings her here: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/flash-player-issues-windows-8.html
where it first tells her she doesn't need to load Adobe Flash but when she runs the Test Flash it tells her it is not enabled or Active X filtering is on. Her Active X filtering is off, set to allow all websites and her flash is enabled in the add-on menu. I have followed all of the instructions on the troubleshooting page listed above including running the Windows update with no success. I can not duplicate it on another machine.
The only other thing I can think to do is update her to Windows 8.1 and IE11 but that would take a lot of time which I'm trying to avoid if possible. Apparently you can not update to IE 11 with Windows 8 without upgrading to Windows 8.1 first.
Again, flash works perfectly in Modern UI mode. It's only in the Desktop UI where the user has the issue.
