Activex loading/swf & menu files

    Hello,

    I am using Frontpage 2003 for a site design. I have 2 .swf files on
    the page as well as a menu bar (with cascading menus- created with All
    Web Menus Pro) that are on the page. When I preview in Firefox the
    movies and menu load automatically. However, when I preview in
    Internet Explorer 7 (the only IE browser I have available), it prompts
    me to load the ActiveX control before it will load the movie files or
    the menu. Is there any way to force Frontpage to include these files
    in such a way that they will always load with IE? I'd prefer my
    visitors not have to deal with the ActiveX prompt.

    I really appreciate your help--

    Thanks,
    Jennifer

    Hi Jennifer, loading the flash with a javascript call gets round the
    license restriction that's at the heart of this problem: see this site
    for a script that does this and that explains the problem nicely
