    Flash Detection and Player Installation

    I have got the problem on my flash based sites. The problem is, if flash player not installed on any system. My script download flash player and install on the client system. When flash player installed on the client system, script automatically detect that player installed on the system and flash object start working automatically.

    If someone has the experienced to tackle this problem, please help me.

    IE will download the flash player automatically if not installed. Firefox will also notify the user and give instruccions how to download it directly. I wouldn't bother having a script to check if flash is installed or not.

    At work we have IE with ActiveX disabled. Several websites check with ActiveX if Flash is installed. Since ActiveX fails, they assume that I dont have Flash installed, and I get redirected to a page saying I need to install Flash. Very annoying!
