Shockwave object doesn't work when IE7 is installed.

P: n/a
UJ
I have a program that uses the Shockwave Flash Objects
(ShockwaveFlashObjects) to display a SWF. Everything works fine. When IE7 is
installed on the machine, suddenly we get an 'Invalid char line 2, char 1'
error on the SWF file. If we load the SWF file in IE it works fine. If we
uninstall IE7 and go back to 6, it works fine.

Any thoughts?

TIA - Jeff.

try checking the "Disable script debugging" options in Tools/Internet
Options/Advanced
Otherwise you may have a syntax error in the object tag.

At any rate, it really has nothing to do with the C# language, you should be
posting stuff like this in the Internet Explorer newsgroup.

But that can't be since I'm not using a tags. I'm using the shockwave object
that's part of .Net. There are no tags. So it has to be something that .Net
is doing.

Well, your post was somewhat confusing since you are talking about "IE".

The only "Shockwave Object" I know about is the Shockwave Flash Object,
which has nothing to do with .NET. It's an ActiveX control, and its installed
for Flash.

If you got it off the COM tab to add to your toolbox, that component is used
for Windows Forms based apps.

The one that shows up in a web page is created via the <object... tag
arrangement, normally.

The object I'm using is listed as AxInterop.ShockwaveFlashObjects. I'm not
sure where it came from whether it's part of windows or part of the flash
install.
