I am wanting to detect if the users browser has the Shockwave plug-in installed. At the moment I am focussing on detecting it within IE.
I have found two methods and I am not sure which one is the best.
One method simply detects if the browser supports ActiveX in which case I create a new ActiveX object:
Then check if it returns TRUECode:var shockwaveInstalled = new ActiveXObject('SWCtl.SWCtl');
Meanwhile there is a script that Adobe suggests I use which I found here:Code:if(shockwaveInstalled) installed = true; else installed = false;
