Subject: FLASH: URGENT Active X question
From: AndrewScratch
Date: Fri, 31 Mar 2000 20:10:51 +0100

Hi all,

This is a somewhat urgent situation for me, and I was wondering if someone could help me with some information.

I am developing a Flash site for the DoD, but ran in to some problems with some people at the Pentagon being unable to view the site. After some research I found out from one of the Network folks there:

"FLASH player is an ActiveX control.
All ActiveX controls are blocked by the OSD Firewalls. This by direction of a Secretary of Defense policy regarding mobile code. Unfortunately this restriction cannot be lifted."

Is this true (that Flash is an Active X Control)? I knew that the <object> tag forced IE into Active X to view Flash movies, but I did not know Flash in general was contingent on Active X across browsers.

I'm trying to have an argument to face the above quote. Please help!
