G.A forum,

Another question from Brian......

I tested a page in IE, FF, Safari and Opera. All is dandy in the latter 3..but good 'ol IE - the animation will not play. It states an updated version of Flash is required. I have Flash 10 installed on my Computer (FF - Mozilla). Do I have to go into IE and download Flash 10 from that browser? Once again confused..

thank you

Hi LM,
Here is the code. I inserted this from FL CS4 to DW CS4 (just basic and playing around gaining hands on experience).

thank you

I actually had the same issue just recently with DW CS4 - I'm not sure why it does this, but I got the "you need to upgrade" message too. I solved it by using a different method that didn't use the IE conditional comments, though the code was messier that way.

I'll keep an eye out and see what Im says.

The code seems ok after quick look but do check here for more precise code for your embed method or try other from this article.

With IE you never know. Sometimes bit of holy water helps. Also, Which @#$@#$ version of IE you got? This new IE8 version seems the same !@#@!@ as IE6 in a sense that not all bugs are known yet. Well, almost.

For now SWFobject embed method seems more and more popular. There full documentation on it available so it is quite easy to implement.
