The end user must have the flash player installed to view the site. Remember, SEO is extremely difficult with flash sites. It is better practice to use flash elements if in fact you must use flash.

I don't see any reason why you wouldn't be able to include the .swf file on the cd.

Thanks eddy,

I understand.

The flash banners that i see on websites such as Yahoo, or buttons on other sites, do they also require flash on the part of the end user?

I will keep my eyes on the computers i use now.

When then would you say it is best to use flash?

Honestly...almost never. The most important things of a website are loading times and quick information; flash offers neither.

If it's a just the banner then I don't see too much harm in using flash. Alternatively you could use javascript or even dhtml.
