The problem is stemming from the fact that the site is using an old Windows
Media Player 6.4 Class ID
CLSID:22D6F312-B0F6=11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95 that is being generated by the
Idealy the script should be updated to use the Windows Media Player 7(and
later) Class ID.
When someone visiting the link you posted for the first time using IE7 or
IE8, they should be confronted with an Information bar at the top of the
"This website wants to run the following add-on: 'Windows Media Player
Extension' from 'Microsoft Corporation'"
Rightclicking on that Information bar will offer the options of running the
ActiveX control on that site only or All web sites.
Once the user accepts the running of the Activex control on that site they
should not be prompted again.
