Default flash on public computers not functional

Can someone tell me why flash is disabled on public computers. It can't access any information except for detecting cookies, right?

I've been to 2 library's where it is disabled.

Is there a way to detect if flash is installed with javascript and redirect the page if it isn't?

yes there is a way..

try colin moock. i hope i spell his name right.

or this..

ActionScript Code:
var tempVer; playerVersion = eval("$version"); tempVer.text=playerVersion; requiredVer.text="6,0,65,0"// you can change to any version that you want your viewers to be able to view myLength = length(playerVersion); while (i<=myLength) {  i = i+1;  temp = substring(playerVersion, i, 1);    if (temp eq " ") {   platform = substring(playerVersion, 1, i-1);   majorVersion = substring(playerVersion, i+1, 1);   secondHalf = substring(playerVersion, i+1, myLength-i);   minorVersion = substring(secondHalf, 5, 2);  } }  if ((majorVersion >=6) && (minorVersion >=65)) {     message.text="your message."; //  your action;      ...   } else {    message.text="your message.";  getURL("http://www.macromedia.com"); // or other things that you want viewers to do }

Default isn't the actionscript in the swf?

I'm not sure how the actionscript is performed if the swfs won't load. The library's don't allow swf files or active x is what I'm guessing.

just do a search on the forum.
i'm sure you will find something useable here.

I did some detection stuff but it's not 100% perfect.

If you want it, let me know.
I'll have to search it on my comp. I know it is somewhere in there.

Hm... Why??? Some librarian might have disabled it because he/she was afraid of any possible threat??? Even though it is known(?) that Flash cannot access the data in the user's computer, that doesn't mean that it cannot be done, right??? So, I guess they are just being cautious???

As for the detecion goes... Check this one out...
Flash Detection Scripts

Good luck...

Talking the article in link to code refers to holy people

The link has javascript code that detects if flash is installed and the author gives credit to the holy people who wrote the code.
