Detecting if Flash Player exists on IE

May 23, 2011 1:10 PM

I'm able to detect if Flash Player exists on every browser except IE.  The code we are using to detect Flash Player is:

 

     if (navigator.mimeTypes && navigator.mimeTypes["application/x-shockwave-flash"]) { // display Flash Object }

    

     else { // display image }

 

This will not work for IE.  I am using IE9 on Windows 7 64bit.

 

Any help appreciated.
