what else do I need to provide?  Below is some of the code from the page...
When I run this page from visual studio (default.html), and browse it from IE I get: Line 69, char: 1 Error: Object expected Code: 0 it is this line with the AC_FL_RunContent on it.
                                    
<script type="text/javascript">
AC_FL_RunContent( 'codebase','http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,28,0','width','650','height','150','src','Flash/cenetheader','quality','high','pluginspage','http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash','movie','Flash/cenetheader' ); //end AC code

OK, so if you view it in another browser, such as firefox, do you get the same error?

Object expected error could mean anything. Is the AC javascript file included in the page anywhere?

in development mode...(visual studio)...if I attempt to browse to IE...I get the error...If I use Firefox I get no errors...
if I publish the project to my development server and run the site...I get no errors and the flash appears.

I have the AC_RunActiveContent.js file at the root of the project. It has the AC_FL_RunContent function in it.

Did you include the js file somewhere in the code before the call to AC_RunActiveContent()?

for eg: -
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="AC_RunActiveContent.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
AC_FL_RunContent( 'codebase','http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,28,0','width','650','height','150','src','Flash/cenetheader','quality','high','pluginspage','http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash','movie','Flash/cenetheader' ); //end AC code
</script>
<noscript>
<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,28,0" width="650" height="150">
  <param name="movie" value="Flash/cenetheader.swf" />
  <param name="quality" value="high" />
  <embed src="Flash/cenetheader.swf" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="650" height="150"></embed>
</object>

OK - so are the files in that location on the server?  The reason I'm persisting on this point is because that error message is what you get when the browser doesn't get the external js file. You should have: -

default.html
Scripts/AC_RunActiveContent.js
Flash/cenetheader.swf

...on the test/live server including cAsE sEnSitIviTy?

Another common reason is a dinked flash plug-in for IE. Check that the flash plugin for IE is the latest version and that it's enabled. If a plug-in crashes IE a few times, it might get disabled. To check that flash is working properly in IE, load the swf directly in the browser address bar http://localhost/siteFolder/Flash/cenetheader.swf. Do the same with your JS file to ensure IE is finding the file http://localhost/siteFolder/Scripts/AC_RunActiveContent.js

After checking these things, if the error persists, I'd need to see the page myself to debug. If you have live server space somewhere, please upload it and post a link.
