can you see this Flash? So why can't I?

Me again. Experimenting with Flash. I know it's a naff animation and I shan't keep it; but I just want to see if I can do it...but...although it works on my pc and laptop at home, it doesn't work where I am at work - all I get is maroon coloured blank box - yet these pcs (on a school network) have Flash 7 installed and show everybody else's flash animations except mine! So it must be me! What am I doing wrong?

interesting..so why does it work on our pcs (3 of them) at home? Where do you suggest I start trying to fix it?

I've just tried it, using Firefox. It seems to be working now.

Right-clicked and noticed that I appear to be using Flash Player 8. Could this be an answer?

It was made with the latest version of flash -I'm just guessing here - might it not work then if people have a lower version of flash?

still doesn't seem to work in IE at least, having downloaded flash 8

I tried using IE with Flash 7. Didn't work. I upgraded to Flash 8 and it then worked OK. I can't understand why yours doesn't.

I suggest you have a look in the settings within Macromedia Flash itself and see if you can make the animation compatible with older versions of Flash Player.

Works here in IE with Flash 8

Works okay here.

F'fox 1.5.

My Flash version must be recent, not earlier than November, though I couldn't tell you which version number that would be.

I shall have to do as beynac says, though I haven't a clue what I'm actually looking for or doing!

FF and IE Flash 8 works for me.
