Preview in a browser

Jun 13, 2012 11:36 AM

I try to preview in a browser an html file from Dreamweaver that has a .swf file imported in it. I keep getting the Flash player dialog box, saying something about a script (expressInstall.swf) that is trying to connect with the browser. Does anyone know what this is about?

    It's a browser security thing on locally displayed Flash files.  You won't see this message on the remote site.

    No.  When you insert Flash media into your HTML page, DW creates a Scripts folder with supporting files in it.  These files help your Flash player work in browsers.  For security reasons, your browser is telling you it needs to connect with a script to activate the player.   You can adjust your browser security settings.  Which browsers are you using?
