Do you know which version of Flash it was published to? Do you have the
latest update to Director "installed" (10.1.1)?
It was published to Flash 8, but for some reason when I asked the developer to export it as Flash 7, it started working. :-)

Possibly because you don't have the latest version of Director? (which
includes an update to the Flash Asset xtra - required to play Flash 8
Actually I tried updating a copy of Director recently, using this link:
Which was listed on this page:
Under the heading "Download the Director MX 2004 10.1.1 developer update in English"
However the updater seemed to only update the shockwave player, and not Director itself. I was able to get the flash 8 asset xtra working in Director however, by copying the newer flash asset xtra out of the shockwave xtras folder (C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Shockwave 10\Xtras) and pasting it over the old flash asset xtra in the Director xtras folder (C:\Program Files\Macromedia\Director MX 2004\Configuration\Xtras).
So now I can use flash 8 content, but my version of director still remains at 10.1
Have I missed something, or is the updater link pointing to the wrong file?
By the way, installing the flash 8 asset xtra in the way seems to break flash components! I never use flash components, so I haven't looked into this much, but it seems like something that could be a bit of a problem if you do use them!
