Hi all, i have a script where it checks for the browser whether it plays SWF. If it supports SWF then the SWF will be loaded or else an image is loaded. I used to have those JS code in index.php where there was no problem working in IE. Now i have moved the code to an external file and called it as a function in index.php. The SWF plays very well in firefox but not in any versions of IE. I tried to alerts, alert inside elseif and flash cannot play condition is executed. Only the instructions inside false condition gets executed i.e., "flash cannot play so load the image". Can someone help me out in this. Its kinda urgent.:-(

Here is the code i used,

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE=JavaScript1.1>
<!--
var MM_contentVersion = 6;
var plugin = (navigator.mimeTypes && navigator.mimeTypes["application/x-shockwave-flash"]) ? navigator.mimeTypes["application/x-shockwave-flash"].enabledPlugin : 0;
if ( plugin ) {
var words = navigator.plugins["Shockwave Flash"].description.split(" ");
for (var i = 0; i < words.length; ++i)
{
if (isNaN(parseInt(words[i])))
continue;
var MM_PluginVersion = words[i];
}
var MM_FlashCanPlay = MM_PluginVersion >= MM_contentVersion;
}
else if (navigator.userAgent && navigator.userAgent.indexOf("MSIE")>=0
&& (navigator.appVersion.indexOf("Win") != -1)) {
document.write('<SCR' + 'IPT LANGUAGE=VBScript\> \n'); //FS hide this from IE4.5 Mac by splitting the tag
document.write('on error resume next \n');
document.write('MM_FlashCanPlay = ( IsObject(CreateObject("ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFla sh." & MM_contentVersion)))\n');
document.write('</SCR' + 'IPT\> \n');
}
if ( MM_FlashCanPlay ) {
document.write('<OBJECT classid="clsid27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"');
document.write(' codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0" ');
document.write(' ID="script" WIDTH="300" HEIGHT="200" ALIGN="">');
document.write(' <PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="script.swf"> <PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high> <PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=#FFFFFF> ');
document.write(' <EMBED src="script.swf" quality=high bgcolor=#FFFFFF ');
document.write(' swLiveConnect=FALSE WIDTH="300" HEIGHT="200" NAME="script" ALIGN=""');
document.write(' TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer">');
document.write(' </EMBED>');
document.write(' </OBJECT>');
} else{
document.write('<IMG SRC="script.gif" WIDTH="300" HEIGHT="200" usemap="#script" BORDER=0>');
}
//-->
</SCRIPT><NOSCRIPT><IMG SRC="script.gif" WIDTH="300" HEIGHT="200" usemap="#script" BORDER=0></NOSCRIPT>

Thanks in advance,
