Flash and Shockwave Forum

An interesting issue

Ok so I recently ran across an interesting problem. Not its not in the flash and it isnt in the coding. Actually to be honest I have no clue where the problem resides as I have never seen this before.

Basically I have a Flash project I am working on that I created in CS3 using ActionScript 2.0 I can see the loaded variables on my computer. A friend across town can see the loaded variables from the database on his computer and so on. However, there are two people I have come across that are unable to view the loaded variables and instead of the flash swf returning the variables, it returns ERROR.

They both have Flash Player 9 and one computer is using Vista, the other XP. Has anyone heard of this before? Just curious.

Do they have some software or a browser plug-in thats blocking the flash files?

Not that I am aware of... They can see the instial flash and if they login with my test account they can go to the next scene but cannot see (for example) any of the information pulled from the database?

Certainly odd. I'd ask them to try installing a new version of flash, and maybe trying another internet browser to see if that's a problem. It's obviously user-specific, so it's up to them to narrow it down.

Thank you so much for your reply. This too I got resolved just a little bit ago. They thought they had flash 9 installed when infact they didnt. I installed it for them and now its working fine.

hehe, OK. One more example to always take a client's/user's word with a grain of salt. ;)
