    Detecting if Flash Player exists on IE

    existing

      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.
