Flash swf plays with document locally but not online - swf plays alone online

My html document has a flash file and it previews fine in my browser (IE7).  But when I uploaded it to a server, there is a blank place where the movie belongs.  But the movie plays online, in the same directory as the html file.  What might this be symptomatic of?  It does the same thing in firefox.

Hi linque,

I suspect the paths may be wrong somewhere.  Can you post the page or a link to the page so we can check the source code.

ok - quick research did some explaining.  My site has one folder Scripts and one file in it.  I've uploaded the one file to the same folder as the document and .swf, and tried the entire folder Scripts inside v7 folder.  so far, no luck - but wow..  I'm sure learning here.

the AC_RunActiveContent.js file is a few days older than the newest version of the files.  Does that matter?  I suppose it was created during earlier versions?

the information I have come across mentions that there are TWO files I should be uploading.  
AC_RunActiveContent.js and AC_ ActiveX.js

I've only found the first - I'm not sure how to create the 2nd one.  are these files unique to my document, or available as a download?

Scripts should reside in the top level of your site.  When you embed a Flash file in Dreamweaver, it creates the Scripts folder and the js file and your page now has a javascript include that points to the top level folder:

<script src="../../Scripts/AC_RunActiveContent.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

So place Scripts correctly and this page should work.
