Issues with IE Flash Player - Macromedia Flash Player

This week I have started seeing issues with swf files published in version 7 (well behind the current version) when viewed in IE 7 browsers. Fonts are missing (for static text), opacities are rendered incorrectly and layering is often discarded.

    Default Issues with IE Flash Player

    This week I have started seeing issues with swf files published in version 7
    (well behind the current version) when viewed in IE 7 browsers. Fonts are
    missing (for static text), opacities are rendered incorrectly and layering is
    often discarded. I suspect that Microsoft has their own version of a swf player
    due to their recent attempts to create their own flash authoring environment
    (or so I've heard). My issue was resolved by upgrading (explicitly) the Adobe
    Flash player but the problem is that IE 7 is no help to the user; it won't try
    to help the user get the right player like Firefox does. Is there a sniffer or
    other code to override whatever ridiculousness is happening with IE? Any ideas
    or theories on what is really happening?

    That sounds like you have an older Flash Player installed

    That is not at all the case. they have no Flahs Player and they have no
    Flash authoring tool.

    Yes .. its up to the web site HTLM to say what version is required. There
    are flash detection kits availale for web site authors to do this.
