IIS 7.5 filters out old Lightroom 1.0 generated swf-files

A simple website just consisting of HTML pages and links to swf-files hosted on Server 2008 R2, IIS 7.5, won't play the photogallery it is designed for. Just the frame comes up but no photos. The swf:s were generated four years ago through Lightroom 1.0 and played then without any problems on Sever 2003 IIS 6.0 (or 5.0??).

Today, opening the index.html directly through a browser play the old swf-files without problems. Generating an swf-site through the current 4.1 Lightroom version plays without problems through IIS 7.5.

So obviously the old swf:s are in some way different from the new ones. Since the old files played fine through the older version of IIS, there got to be a way to tweak IIS 7.5 to make them play. But how?

One more try :

http://www.red-gate.com/supportcenter/content/Exchange_Server_Archiver/help/3.0/ESA_Config_IIS

http://docs.liebsoft.com/Random-Password-Manager-Installation-Guide/4440.htm

Please sure you have installed the IIS6.0  compatible features as per above URLs

If now its not solved then may be you have to put that site in IIS6.0 only or have to upgrade the swf video files which compatible with IIS7.

In MIME types I have ".swf application/x-shockwave-flash inherited". If there is a MIME problem the new .swf:s wouldn't play either?

Please try it yourself by downloading two sites, one with new .swf:s that work and one with old .swf:s that doesn't work. Log in to ftp://www.techpart.se as "Anonymous".

Thanks for your help!

I think you can install iis7.5 on Windows2008 with IIS6.0 Compatibility Features.
