    Anyone shed some light on this?

    Whenever i click on the link to the flash movie from my html splash page i'm greeted by a download file offering. This happens only with files that i uploaded recently so it looks like IE isn't to blame here.

    It might be coincidental (doh) but in the html publish settings options all of a sudden i no longer have the plain "flash 5" template available. This has been replaced by "flash only" option. If i use the "detect flash 5" then i get a warning about additional formats and settings.
    Any help with this would certainly be very appreciated. Its a nasty problem that id sure like to see the back of.

    At present I'm using flash mx, win XP, gin...help

    and what does it tell you to download?
    isn't it the flash player?
    i've seen this happen, and it was the flash player, which, after you download, makes that thing disappear...
    if it isn't... I don't know...

    sorry, i left this crucial bit of info out...

    the browser prompts me to download the swf file that's meant to open
    in the damm window.
    Once again, help please; My plans for a global multimedia empire are looking shakier by the minute!

    If a url for an example of this download thing is needed then my main site metropoliswebdesign.net is a horribly perfect example.
    Cheers.
    (if it works ok then please post and say- as it maybe a browser issue.)

    it's most likely beause you're linking directly to the .swf
    if you embed you flash file into a html page i doubt you'll
    have this problem again.

    hope that helps..
