Newb: OnProgress Not Firing From Local Machine

On a VB6 form, I have this:

Option Explicit

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    flash.LoadMovie 0, "\\computer\wwwroot\sitename\notes.swf"
End Sub

Private Sub flash_OnProgress(ByVal percentDone As Long)
    Debug.Print percentDone
End Sub


Where "flash" is an instance of ShockwaveFlash (the Flash ActiveX control).

The movie loads fine, but the OnProgress event never fires (Debug.Print percentDone never gets reached). What is going on? How do I get OnProgress to fire?

This seems more like a visual basic question than a Flash one!

It's about the Flash ActiveX control and its API. I could've written it in any language and the question would be the same.

It does relate to Windows Forms, I just figured any person using Flash on Win Forms would hang out here.

Sorry, I just figured as you haven't had a response, you might have more joy in another section, and claim the points back on this one...

You're right though, maybe someone will post an answer...

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
