IE7 Skips Preloader (but does load movie)

224 100+
hi there... i'm having a new strange problem with my flash site... IE7 seems to not display my preloader but instead loads the movie with a white screen... the movie does load though...

this is a new problem, as it never use to happen before... it use to show everything... does anyone know why this suddenly started to happen? i've cleared the cache... could this be an issue with Flash CS3? any help would be GREATLY appreciated, as i've been working on this site for almost a year, and i'm about to launch...

any ideas?

i discovered the problem is because i'm using SWFAddress, and that flash movies with anchors "#" in the address makes it go all crazy... i'm still trying to fix it... attempting the "satay method": http://www.adobe.com/devnet/dreamwea...ash_satay.html

and yes, i'm using Flash CS3...

Hello, I am currently experiencing the same issue. When I load my movie in Firefox, the preloader screen shows when the movie is loading. But this is not true when I use IE7. What happens in IE7 is that the movie loads in the background (Shows a blank screen while this happens). Then when it gets done loading, it quickly shows the loading screen and then plays the movie. Here is a link to a post I made on another forum about this issue.

I used Swishmax to make my movie. If you have managed to solve this problem, I would really appreciate if you could help me out. Thanks.
