Insert Flash SWF

Nov 23, 2012 4:34 PM

Everytime I add a swf file in Dreamweaver the following script is added:


<script src="Scripts/swfobject_modified.js" type="text/javascript"></script>


When I preview in the browser the swf doesn't play and I get a message saying:


Adobe Flash Player has stopped a potentially unsafe operation. The following location on your computer or network:

C:\DATAFILES\NewWeb\Scripts\ExpressInstall.swf is trying to communicate with the internet-enable location:


After searching for quite a while (I am not bitter), I replaced that script with the following one:


<script type="text/javascript" src="swfobject.js"></script>


and everything works fine. My question is How do I stop the automatic insertion of the bad script? Is there an ini file I can change to prevent this.

    Do you have a file named swfobject.js in the same folder as the html file?


    Chances are you need to be testing on a server and are otherwise getting a security error when trying to test locally.  I doin't think the swfobject versus swfobject_modified is the problem.  Though I am not certain, I suspect that not utlizing the swfobject_modified file is causing the line that would test the ExpressInstall.swf to not be executed, which sidesteps the error occuring when testing locally.
