    Does anyone know of a way to detect the Flash 4.02x plugin that is print-capable? (either from within Flash or another way...)

    Yesterday we launched http://www.cecwheels.com/ with a Flash Generator/Cold Fusion vehicle/car/wheel configurator, but had to disable the print feature on this live site because it resets the loaded movie when you try to print if you do not have the latest player version. (argh!)

    If I could find a way for it to not reset, or detect for the proper player, I could enable printing again...


    You can see/test the print-capable version at our beta PR2 site and tell me what you think:
    http://208.46.186.132/cecwheels/pr2/...cle_ID=AUA4003

    ( On the above link javascript detail pop-ups will not work properly because it is not in the proper html template. To see all that go through the regular query process at http://www.cecwheels.com/ )


    Thanks in advance for any help on this!

    regards,

    That information comes with the Printing SDK which you can get at www.flash.com
    You reference the built in variable $version
