How do I let LWP pretend to have Flash installed?

I'm trying to retrieve a page but another page is being displayed due to flash not being installed.

The check for flash has to be done client side.. so the page your are trying to view..probably sets a cookie or a form variable to tell the server side script you have flash and the show/hide the content.  You can use a program like HTTPWatch.. to see what exactly is being sent.   My guess would be a cookie. Then in LWP you can "hard code" that cookies into your lwp request.  Like I said it would be more help if we knew the url,  and I could tell you exactly what being sent to tell it you had flash.

to check whether the flash is installed or not,
please go through the link which contains script,

The only way i know to test if flash is installed is javascript....so there probly setting a form varrible... ex: hasflash=1. Can you post the url your trying to get info from maybe we can help more?

What I mean is that I am trying to let LWP get a page. The page that it is trying to get requires Flash.
Since LWP does not have Flash installed (..) , the end-page will send the LWP to some "install Flash first" page.

I want LWP to pretend to have Flash installed.
