I'm having a small problem when I try to run a DCR file on my site.

My code is as follows:

<script type=\"text/javascript\">\n
document.write('<OBJECT CLASSID=\"clsid:166B1BCA-3F9C-11CF-8075-444553540000\"');
document.write('WIDTH=\"".$gamewidth."\" HEIGHT=\"".$gameheight."\" NAME=\"shocked\" ID=\"swmovie1\">');
document.write('<PARAM NAME=\"SRC\" VALUE=\"".$gamefilepath."\">');
document.write('<embed src=\"".$gamefilepath."\" width=\"".$gamewidth."\" height=\"".$gameheight."\">');
<OBJECT CLASSID=\"clsid:166B1BCA-3F9C-11CF-8075-444553540000\"
WIDTH=\"".$gamewidth."\" HEIGHT=\"".$gameheight."\" NAME=\"shocked\" ID=\"swmovie1\">
<PARAM NAME=\"SRC\" VALUE=\"".$gamefilepath."\">
<embed src=\"".$gamefilepath."\" width=\"".$gamewidth."\" height=\"".$gameheight."\">

When I try to run a page with a DCR file on it, I get the following message:

"The page you are trying to open contains a movie that is in reference to an incorrect version of the shockwave player."

I did some research and it looks like I need to specify that I want to use shockwave player 11. I'm not totally sure how to fix this or what to do. Any advice would be wonderful.

Thanks in advance.
