    help - swf only displays as white box or "download new version of flash player"

    bestplaceinaustin

      I've installed a swf banner on my site but only get either a white box that's the same dimensions as the swf should be or this

       

       

      Content on this page requires a newer version of Adobe Flash Player.

      Get Adobe Flash player

       

      This is the code that Dreamweaver is generating

       

       

      <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="864" height="216" id="FlashID2" title="decent1">

        <param name="movie" value="FLASHbannerDECENT1.swf" />

        <param name="quality" value="high" />

        <param name="wmode" value="transparent" />

        <param name="swfversion" value="11.0.0.0" />

        <!-- This param tag prompts users with Flash Player 6.0 r65 and higher to download the latest version of Flash Player. Delete it if you don’t want users to see the prompt. -->

        <param name="expressinstall" value="Scripts/expressInstall.swf" />

        <!-- Next object tag is for non-IE browsers. So hide it from IE using IECC. -->

        <!--[if !IE]>-->

        <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="FLASHbannerDECENT1.swf" width="864" height="216">

          <!--<![endif]-->

          <param name="quality" value="high" />

          <param name="wmode" value="transparent" />

          <param name="swfversion" value="11.0.0.0" />

          <param name="expressinstall" value="Scripts/expressInstall.swf" />

          <!-- The browser displays the following alternative content for users with Flash Player 6.0 and older. -->

          <div>

            <h4>Content on this page requires a newer version of Adobe Flash Player.</h4>

            <p><a href="http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer"><img src="http://www.adobe.com/images/shared/download_buttons/get_flash_player.gif" alt="Get Adobe Flash player" width="112" height="33" /></a></p>

       

       

      I've tried setting the flash properties to transparent and that hasn't helped. I'm really stumped here.

      Many thanks in advance.
