    I am currently designing a site that has a Flash Animation in it. I have saved this file as a Flash 4 animation so that it will work for people who only have Flash 4 and have not upgraded yet.
    I have tested this on computers with Flash 5 and it works fine in both IE and NN. However, on computers with Flash 4, it will work fine in NN and not at all in IE (that's a first huh). If you hit the stop button in IE after giving the animation a chance to load, it will work, but there is no way that I can expect the viewers of the site to know this. Any suggestions/ideas? I really would like Flash 4 users to be able to view these animations.

    I'm not sure, but I think it's because of the code within the embedd-tag, when publishing the movie.
    Throwing away the link to plugin-page might be the solution.
    But then you have to make sure to find out if users do have a flash4-plugin or not.

    But I also find it's a problem, that the users are guide to the new flash5-plugin, even thow if they do have the flash4-plugin.
    But that's a macromedia-problem, have they set up their "plugin-server"?

    I figured it out. It is the version call in the code. However instead of getting rid of that line altogether, simply change the 5 in the code to a 4. This has worked fine in all of our tests.
