What do you mean by "fails to show"? If i drop a webbrowser control onto a form set it to the url you posted it displays correctly but won't let you run it because it is blocking direct linking.

You can't link directly to the SWF because the movie itself is checking the domain that the request came from. If you want to run it properly you would have to point your webbrowser control to:
