ExternalInterface.call issue

Hi,

I have some users having issues with my Flash app in relation to the ExternalInterface.call (AS2) script - it's either not executed or not returning a value. My users both use IE and Firefox, Flash player 9 or above, on average it affects about 10% of my users.

What I'm looking for is really a list of possibilities just to give me a starting point in troubleshooting this error, e.g. Internet/browser security settings, firewalls, antivirus, etc.

Hi,
Check the following:
1. Check whether allowScriptAccess is set to always - <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" />
2. Check whether your object embed tag fall in between <form> tag in html; then use this link to find a solution
3. Check the data that you are passing by just placing an alert
4. Check in flash by using ExternalInterface.available to be true

Warm Regards
