flash works in IE 9 but not in IE 11?

Posted 31 December 2013 - 03:52 PM

Hello Forum,

I am using a small flash object in the index page of www.gelsana.com. It appears on one computer using IE 9 but not on another computer using IE 11. I first thought it might be an issue with a virus, but I ran a couple of anti-virus programs and I still have the issue on the computer using IE 11. Any advice?

What I would prefer to do instead of just not showing the little flash object is post some sort of message instead telling the user to download this or that. But since the cause of it not showing, I guess, might be for several reasons, I would need some sort of browser sniffer. I mean, it does not show at all in Chrome or Firefox.

Can the problem be fixed with using a later version of flash?

It seems to me that every browser and every version should have some way to show Flash. Is this not the case?

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

This web forum has too many ads.

Anyway, I made a new html from scratch using dreamweaver that included the swf file, and this helped solve the issue I am having.

THe page does not work with firefox though

It requires a Flash player, a Flash plug-in, to play Flash in a browser, which many people no longer install. In IE (and perhaps other browsers) there may also be settings that need to be applied before it will play. This is part of the reason why there is so much interest in HTML5.
