    Flash 7 getURL fails in IE7

    somascope Level 3
      I have an old Flash file that must remain published to Flash player 7. I'm experience a complete failure of communication to JavaScript in IE7 when using getURL(), and am unsure how to resolve this issue.

      A call to a JavaScript function on the page fails. Even a simple call to make an alert happen fails:
      btn.onRelease = function() {
      getURL("javascript:alert('you clicked me')");

      I'm using the AC_RunActiveContent.js to embed the *.swf (via the export to HTML).

      This does work when viewed in Firefox 2. How many others have run into this? What are workarounds or alternatives?

          This is now no longer an issue for me. I finally decided to download and run the Flash player uninstaller, and reinstall Flash. That did the trick for me. So I must have had a corrupt player on my machine.

          Frustrating, though, that I only thought of this after a couple hours of pulling teeth, hairs and other things.
