Use SWFobject to embed your content. It's the de-facto standard, gets rid of the activeX issues that you note (this only comes up in some IE6 browsers). Adobe is going to make it the official standard with the next release of the Creative Suite (or so the word is on the net)
Hi, I have the same problem like thousands of others. Been trying to resolve over past 2 days, so here's what i founnd. May be you also using version MX2004 as I am (Flash 7). I can not get hold of the Flash update 7.02 (Adobe no longer distribute it, can anyone provide that update file). Once that update is applied, you can then install Hotfix 2, and this stops IE displaying the Active X warning when previewing locally.
Do you know about the Deconcept method to embed Flash and swf files in a webpage - see " http://blog.deconcept.com/swfobject/" and follow the latest method for SWFObject. The root problem is when IE sees an unsigned certificate for the Flash item, it forces the warning dialogue box to bring to attention the item is unsigned and maybe risky. But as Thawte and Verisign certs cost money, most people don't get digi signatures, so IE (and Moz I think) display the Active X warning.
I found several solutions, try googling "Stop IE display Active x". Here is a search result:
Here are a couple solutions, the first two is the simplest:
Actually, upon re-reading the initial question, and nextens reply, I believe I mistook the initial problem.
It sounds as though you are previewing the SWF in the browser from your local drive?
If this is so, then you will receive the blocked content warning. This is because the browsers have this locked down from the local directory for security reasons. This warning will not appear once you have placed the SWF into an HTML page and uploaded it to your server.
Also, SWFObject is the industry standard (as stated in the video tutorial by Lee Brimelow here: http://www.gotoandlearn.com/player.php?id=77 - "... Adobe is choosing to use [SWFObject] in the CS4 family of products")
Yes I am loading it locally, which is a great relief if it is as simple as that. Thank you very much all.
