I do not know why Sothink does not offer an option to SWF Quicker to export Flash (.swf) and HTML file with simple as what Adobe flash or any other flash authoring tool offer.

Tutorial:How to solve the "Click to activate prompt box"
===============================================

Why do I get a message prompting me to “click to activate and use this control” when I hover my mouse over a Flash element?

This is a caused by the latest I. E. update.

and

or

===============================

Microsoft recently lost a legal battle with a patent holder about the way Internet Explorer displays OBJECTs and EMBEDs in webpages. Microsoft then decided to update its Internet Explorer browser with changes requiring user input to display and activate ActiveX based media.

This affects Flash files, QuickTime, RealPlayer, Java , Adobe Acrobat among others. It means users have to click the object first in order to activate its functions.

To fix the problem, please follow these steps:

1) Just below the last <object> in your HTML page, insert the following Javascript:

<script type="text/javascript" src="fixit.js"></script>

2) Open a new document in Notepad or your HTML editor, and copy & paste the following content into it:

theObjects = document.getElementsByTagName("object");
for (var i = 0; i < theObjects.length; i++) {
theObjects[i].outerHTML = theObjects[i].outerHTML;
}


3) Save this file as fixit.js

4) Use Publish Wizard window from SWF Quicker >> Use Option Two: Insert Flash Movie (*.swf) to HTML File

5) Upload both files to your webserver, and the problem should be solved.

And last:

Come on Sothink! Your flash authoring tools could offer this solutions for 'Click to Activate' issue long ago, it's not that very hard coding.

Hello ghol,

Thanks for bring this issue to our notice. :D

I will forward it to our R & D department and take it into consideration in future release of the program.

Thanks for your understanding and have a nice day.

Why do I see a message prompting me to “click to activate and use this control” when I roll my mouse over a Flash animation?

Solution
This is a result of the latest Internet Explorer update.Microsoft recently lost a legal battle with a patent holder about the way Internet Explorer displays OBJECTs and EMBEDs in webpages. Microsoft then decided to update its Internet Explorer browser with changes requiring user input to display and activate ActiveX based media.

This affects all Flash animations but also other files such as QuickTime, RealPlayer, Java and Adobe Acrobat among others. It means users have to click the object first in order to activate its functions.

Luckily, there are ways for website developers to modify their website so that the user experience is not impacted by Microsoft’s changes.

To fix the problem, please follow these steps:

1. Just below the last <object> in your HTML page, insert the following line :
<script type="text/javascript" src="ieupdate.js"></script>

2. Open a new document in Notepad or your HTML editor, and copy & paste the following content into it:

theObjects = document.getElementsByTagName("object");
for (var i = 0; i < theObjects.length; i++) {
theObjects[i].outerHTML = theObjects[i].outerHTML;
}


3. Save this file as ieupdate.js

4. Upload both files to your webserver, and the problem should be solved.

theObjects = document.getElementsByTagName("object");
for (var i = 0; i < theObjects.length; i++) {
theObjects[i].outerHTML = theObjects[i].outerHTML;
}

Above fix would not work with Adobe flash player security update with version 10.1.53.64 if the flash object is on a popup window (Modal dialog).
