I'm running IE 11 on Server 2012. I turned off protected mode. I disabled active x filtering. I'm using an app that says I have to install Flash. But if go to install it, the flash site says it is integrated in with Windows 8 and IE 11. I'm using Server 2012 as I said. If I test flash it guides me to do the troubleshooting steps just mentioned. I disable active x filtering, I turn of protected mode. I search for the shockwave object but it isn't there. If I try to search for addon it isn't available. Very strange.
Microsoft embeds Flash Player in IE on Server 2012, but it's not readily available. Desktop Experience needs to be enabled on the Server for Flash to be enabled. See Desktop Experience Overview for information on enabling Desktop Experience.
Thanks! That did the trick. I didn't use the link you sent though. I used these steps:
To install Desktop Experience
Thank you. I'm glad it's working for you now.
