In the past I used Dreamweaver 4 and I would follow these same steps to add flash to my websites and it always worked. this is my first time trying it with Dreamweaver CS3.
Even if I just make a blank page with one swf on it as a test, the swf does not show up at all when I view the page over the internet using IE 6.
Also, I used Dreamweaver CS3 to open an old page that I made with Dreamweaver 4. I saved the page using Dreamweaver CS3 and then uploaded it and now the flash elements are missing. Help!

[edit reason] no personal urls, thanks [/edit]
can you check the source code?
if so, is the swf file being embedded using both <object> and <embed>?
I don't use DW, but I last time I looked it was pretty compliant and if so it may have dropped using the <embed> element, and again as far as I know IE still needs this
are you able to view it in a non-IE browser to check if the .swf is appearing in other browsers

Code indicated the AC_RunActiveContent.js was in a folder called Scripts on my hard drive so I created a similar folder on the server to upload the file to but after many days with video not working and searching the web for a solution I noticed the folder on the server was named in all lower case, eg scripts.
I renamed the folder on my hard drive to the all lower case letters and deleted the AC_RunActiveContent.js file, loaded html file back into Dreamweaver CS3 and saved the file again.
Uploaded the html file to the server and the new AC_RunActiveContent.js to the new scripts folder and everything seems to work fine.
Hope this helps.
