Hello everybody

We have a Windows 2012 R2 RDS Server, this server is also a DC. The users are working on the Server with IE11. This problems occurs just on IE11, Flash on Firefox is working fine.

Flash player with IE11 on a normal user account (without administrative rights) does not work on all websites. Youtube is working fine (we don’t know why) but all other flash components are not working.

Flash player with IE11 with an administrator user is working fine.

We followed the instructions from Adobe to activate Flash Player without success. Of course we’ve deinstalled / installed Flash Player again.

Do you have any input?

"but all other flash components are not working. "
Would you elaborate on that?  Do you mean "all other flash websites are not working"?
Can you give us an example?
Any error messages?

With components we mean the websites. If we want to visit a flash website it does not work (as a normal user) the Website advise us to download the flash player from Adobe.
Example:
http://www.cloudsovercuba.com
http://www.intel.com/museumofme/en_US/r/index.htm
(and many others)

-> Youtube works for the normal user (but there is also a advise to download flash player)

There are no error messages.

This and also "add to compatibility view" takes no effect.

I understand you already have flash player installed.  However, sometimes you just have to go along with the website and uninstall Flash Player and then reinstall it.  Maybe you will install a newer version.
You could also try putting sites that give you trouble into your Trusted Sites (assuming you do trust them not to give you trouble).

Of course we’ve deinstalled / installed the latest version of Flash Player. Unfortunately the trusted sites don't help.
