.swf Files Won't Play in IE7

Few days before, when i tried to put shockwave pages (.SWF files) in pageviewer webparts, it did not work. After doing some research and troubleshooting, i compare my two systems: one was using IE 6.0 and other was using IE 7.0

The .SWF files are working fine in the machine where IE 6.0 is present but the problem is with the IE 7.0. I understand this arises from a security "feature" in IE7 that blocks "Cross-Domain" shockwave objects.

I found there's a registry hack that disables this "feature."

Solution for this as mentioned below:-
Create a key named HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\Feature Control\FEATURE_BLOCK_LMZ_SCRIPT and add a REG_DWORD value to the key of 0 which should show up as 0x000000 (0)

Now my page views with .swfs in them work just fine.


Happy SharePoint to all of you…
