    Question SWFOBJECTS 2.0 - Help

    I downloaded the latest version of SWFOBJECTS 2.0 (embedding swf in html) from Google Code. I followed the instruction given there

    Following is the code is used in the html head -
    Code:
    <script type="text/javascript" src="javascripts/swfobject.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    	swfobject.registerObject("topNav" , "8.0.0", "flash/expressInstall.swf");
    </script>
    Following is the code i used in the body -
    Code:
    <object id="topNav" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="676" height="145">
          <param name="movie" value="flash/tn_home.swf" />
          <param name="menu" value="false" />
          <!--[if !IE]>-->
          <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="flash/tn_home.swf" width="676" height="145">
            <param name="menu" value="false" />
            <!--<![endif]-->
            <!--[if !IE]>-->
          </object>
          <!--<![endif]-->
        </object>
    My problem is, even after doing all this, i still get the "click to activate" thing in IE 7 - i need to click on the navigation once to enable it and click on it again to go to the link page.

    I need to know how to show my swf files in IE7 without the 'click to activate' thing - like firefox.

    Thanks in advance.

    Yeah, I just downloaded all that junk and followed the instructions and couldn't get it to work either. I mean, the Flash worked fine, it just didn't get rid of 'click to activate'.

    I don't generally use swfobject though, so there might be something I'm missing. I use a completely different approach:

    Works well for me and many others.

    Thanks jscheuer1.

    I downloaded an update for my dreamweaver 8 - 8.0.2. They have a small popup which opens if you have a flash in the page and fixes it. I no longer see the 'click to activate' after applying it.
