I have embed an flash movie in webpage using <object> tag as:



<object
classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
id="flash_movie"
width="849" height="133"
codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,19,0"

<param name="movie" value="flash_movie.swf">
<param name="bgcolor" value="#DEC0A0">
<param name="quality" value="high">
<param name="allowscriptaccess" value="samedomain">

<param name="allowscriptaccess" value="samedomain">
<embed
type="application/x-shockwave-flash"

pluginspage="http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash"

name="flash_movie"
width="849" height="133"
src="/external/css/flash_movie.swf"
bgcolor="#DEC0A0"
quality="high"
allowscriptaccess="samedomain"

</embed>
</object>


this flash movie will be played automatically if client's browser does have flash player installed. but what if he doesn't?
how can I prompt user to install the flash player when he visit my site first time?

You need to use something like SWF Object 2.0 which has an express install feature that prompts the user to install the latest version of flash. Your code does no detection of which flash version the user has which is why it doesn't "prompt" them.
