Last week I got Adobe Flash CS3, DreamWeaver CS3, and Fireworks CS3 installed on my computer. I installed them without removing the previous versions (Macrodedia Flash 8 Pro, DreamWeaver MX, and Fireworks MX). At this time I could open swf files in IE6 and it would be able to show them. I tested the new software and decided to keep it. There were some file association conficts so I went ahead and uninstalled the previous versions. I went to my website and discovered I could no longer open swf files in IE6. I new this because my website (stevehoff424.co.nr) has a frameset which opens a .swf file (my music player) in a seperate frame so it's not imbeded. Instead of showing the swf file, the golden bar at the top comes down and says that it blocked a download and do I want to download this file. (it did not used to do this) When I go to my website in mozzilla firefox or IE6 on another computer, it shows it the way i intended it to. I tried to update the flash player plugin and I installed it 3 times and restarted my computer and it still won't work. My IE6 shows swf files when they are imbeded objects but won't show them when i just try to open them directly with IE6. I re-installed Flash Pro 8 just in case maybe it deleted a file that was nessesary but it didn't help. I tried to uninstall and re-install Flash CS3 but my computer won't uninstall it. it gets hung up after it has just begun the uninstallation. I can't re-install it or repair the installation unless I have a disc and I don't b/c i downloaded it directly from Adobe.com
I tried to re-install IE6 but when i run the installation program, it says a newer version is already installed on this computer and setup cannot continue. and I don't know how to uninstall IE6 to re-install it.
Any help on this issue is greatly apreciated
