A developer just gave me a .FLA and .SWF file.  These files are the contents of my new website.  My current  website site is asp / html based running on a 2003 server running IIS.  How do I set up IIS to run using the new flash content?

    No special treatment is required.
    you first need to embed your SWF into an html and upload SWF and html on your swf using FTP.

    End user need to have Flash player installed to see your website content, and to make sure that user should be prompted to install flash player in not installed,
    you should also put a javascript check in your HTML which will check whether user has correct flash player version or not..

    here is the best and simplest Javascript Flash Player detection and embed script

    Very helpful response from aneeshchopra.  I did a google search to find out how to embed the flash into the html.  Heres what I found from:

    "If you're familiar with WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editors like Macromedia Dreamweaver or Microsoft FrontPage, then it's easy to just use the Insert menu to insert a Flash object, and then select your SWF file from its location on your hard drive; the HTML editor will write the code for you, and all you need to do is edit the path of the file to reflect the location on your web server."
