The reason for having the wrong version number in the error message is related
to the fact that Flash 9 hasn't been released yet. The code in the project
sees that the user doesn't have Flash 9, so it then loads special code from
adobe.com, which prompts the user to upgrade.
But, the official download site on adobe.com obviously has flash 8; thus the
upgrade swf on that site thinks they need flash 8, not flash 9.
In any case, the real problem is that for some reason the ActiveX version of
Flash 9 didn't install correctly on his computer.

That would make sense on his computer.
However then, why am I not able to view the IE version of the site even
though I have Flash 9 installed on my computer.
Are you sure you installed BOTH players, the one for Firefox and the "AX" one for IE?
Didn't know there was as second one for IE. Where can I find this one?
