Flash Issues in IE7


Some users have recently reported difficulty directly viewing Flash content (files ending in the .swf extension) in Internet Explorer 7.

Microsoft is aware of the issue and has posted a support document which includes workarounds:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/934366

This issue only affects users accessing the swf file directly and not html pages in which the Flash file is embedded.  For this reason, we recommend that you contact your school liaison or e-support specialist if you wish to post Flash content to your Angel course.  They will assist you in preparing the file for upload.

Please contact TLT (588-7107) with any questions or concerns you may have regarding this issue.
