I'll admit it: I'm a total Flash n00b. So I apologize if this question sounds dumb or clueless in advance.

Ok, so the deal is this: I have a slideshow that was made in Flash, and it's embedded on my company's website. It was working fine for a few weeks, but all of a sudden it stopped playing in IE 7 and 8. Now, when you go to the page in that browser, nothing happens. Just a blank spot where the slideshow used to play. Below is the code I am using for the player (I removed the file path URL here, but I've verified that it is in fact the correct path):

<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" width="560" height="235" id="associationcontentmarketing" align="middle">
<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
<param name="allowFullScreen" value="false" />
<param name="movie" value="associationpresoNEW.swf" /><param name="quality" value="high" /><param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" /> <embed src="http://FILEPATH.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff" width="560" height="235" name="associationpresoNEW" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" allowFullScreen="false" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />

Any ideas on how I could make this work in IE again? I'd really, really appreciate any help. Thanks!!

There are 2 file paths in that code: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/415/tn_4150.html

<param name="movie" value="associationpresoNEW.swf" />

<embed src="http://FILEPATH.swf"..>

Make sure they both have the same path and file name.
