SWF and Temp Internet Files

Hi experts,

I have designed a website using Flash (SWF's), I have uploaded the website to our webserver and it works fine. When I try to update a SWF file and re post it to the webserver it will not update the client. This is due to the previous SWF filke in store in Temporary Infiles Files which is referenced from the client. How can I ensure that all previous visitors to the website can view newly upload SWF.

    you need to append some extra code to then end of the filename during testing...  like this:

    src="mymovie.swf?nocache=<?PHP $myRandomNumber ?>"...

    I am using PHP to place a random number in the code, but you can use Javascript, or any other server side language.

    and here is some other useful information:
