It seems like that might be the case. I was testing on IE3.01 and got
the little "X". I got the authenticode update at:
and rebooted (mandatory part of installation), and it works on that
machine now.

The only thing that makes me still wonder is that I had previously used
that browser successfully with the 2.0 ActiveX Flash player, and didn't
run into the authenticode problem before. Also, I have my security set
to "None" on that browser so it shouldn't have been a problem anyway.

So two things to do:
1) Install IE3.01 and double check the authenticode issue. The only
thing I didn't try after doing the autoinstall of Flash 3 was
restarting my browser or machine. Maybe that's all it needed (though it
*shouldn't* need it according to how ActiveX is supposed to work). If,
after autoinstalling Flash 3, and restarting your machine, the page
still returns the "X", then install authenticode 2. Restart again. If
it works after that, you know it's all because of the Authenticode.

2) If the problem is authenticode specific, sniff out IE 3.01 and 3.0,
and send them to an authenticode instructions page, including the link

Please post the results!
