I have a swf file with a hyperlinked button. The link works in FF and Safari, but does not work in any version of IE. I'm using Flash CS3 and AS2. I haven't found much documentation about this problem. Any ideas?

No ideas about what is happening and why in IE, but IE gets particular sometimes in the way the link path and/or the folder/files names are done. Have you tried AS3? Anyway we can get a look at either the code or the site's mouseover links?

Here's the code I have on my button:
on (release) {
//Goto Webpage Behavior
//End Behavior


When I rollover the button in IE, it recognizes that it is a link, but does nothing when I click on it. It works fine in other Safari & FF.

If I remove the javascript tracking getURL, the link works in IE6, but not IE7 or IE8.
