#1: Shockwave files dont run on IIS 6.0 (Windows Server 2003)

Posted on 2005-12-30 18:04:01 by ZiangiJones

hi,

i have a htm page which runs shockwave files. it used to work fine on Server
2000 but NOT on 2003 server. I have done some research about this problem on
the net and accordingly i have done some changes to the IIS 6.0 Default
website properties.

In the HTTP headers section --> MIME TYPES i have added the following:
..swf application/x-shockwave-flash
BUT it still doesnt work.
The shockwave sections is just NOT displayed. If i Right-Click on that
section, i can see the menu of MACROMEDIA. (Latest version of Shockwave &
Flash player have been installed.)
I have tried all the security settings and ENABLED ALL of them, but it still
does not work.
Please help.
Thanks in advance.

Shockwave is just downloadable file from IIS perspective, no server-side
processing... so the only issue is whether IIS serves it as file download or
not.

If it is in MIME Types (if you changed globally, need to restart IIS to take
effect. If the change is per-URL/website, then change is immediately
effective), then IIS6 will allow it to download and you shouldn't see red-X
in the browser (as if the file returned 404).

Since you say that you can right click in the browser and no red-X, I
presume the file downloaded properly to the browser. At which point this is
not an issue of "Shockwave files don't run on IIS6" because:
1. Shockwave files never run on IIS6 to begin with
2. Shockwave files got downloaded to browser, so it no longer involves IIS

I would start looking at whether your SWF file is corrupted (is the File on
the client-side still ok, and is there anything installed on IIS server that
can corrupt/mis-label the SWF file) or browser-side configuration prevents
SWF execution.

This time, i deleted all the shockwave files from 'Temporary Internet Files'
and then tried to access the link. BUT to my surprise, when i did a right
click on the shockwave section i got 'Movie not loaded'. I checked the
''Temporary Internet Files' folder but did NOT find any downloaded shockwave
files.

(i am doing the testing on the WINDOWS server 2003 itself & i am accessing
the web page by specifying the ip address of the server m/c)
then i opened some other site which has some shockwave files. not only the
shockwave files were downloaded successfully but i was able to see them too.

it seems there is a problem with my IIS 6.0
Ne pointers to this problem.
Thank you.

If you can load the Shockwave file in your browser from another server
that serves pages, but not your own, you're still encountering some
sort of configuration issue. You aren't by chance using URLScan on that
server and it's blocking .swf files? It's really easy to tell whether
that's the problem or not by accessing the page then checking the
website log file. If URLScan is blocking .swf files, you'll see a
<Rejected-By-URLScan> in the log. If that's not it, is there anything
listed in the log files when the file is accessed? Any HTTP error
codes?

..SWF is not downloadable by default unless MIMEType is configured.

I went and configured it in IIS6, and it downloaded just fine for me... so I
do not think there is a problem with IIS6 but rather something else with
your configuration.

If you use IP address of the server, IE would treat it as a dotted IP
address which would have different security settings regarding file
downloads and code execution than some other site.

I suggest that you check the IIS web log files for the website to see the
HTTP status code related to your request for the SWF file.

Posted on 2006-01-02 18:45:01 by ZiangiJones

Hi David,
thanks a lot for ur reply.
I read almost all the content given in ur blogs. i checked my logs and i
found error 404 for swf files. (this was not visible on the web-page.)
then i designed my own htm page (say page 2) & attached a shockwave file to
it. SURPRISINGLY, it ran properly without any hassles.
i checked my original htm page (say page1); it has a javascript that calls a
shockwave file.

I found that this javascript file is the real culprit. Because of some error
in it, shockwave files are not downloaded. BUT the same thing runs PROPERLY
on 2000 SERVER.

i know this is just irrelevant to you, but it would be really nice if you
give me any pointers on this issue.
Thank You.

If you're sitting at the 2003 Server itself, make your site a trusted
site. That should do it.

Hi AA,
i tried that too, but it didnt help.
Basically its a problem with javascript & not with the site being made
trusted.

Posted on 2006-01-03 17:47:02 by ZiangiJones

i think i have got a breakthrough.

I was debugging the code to find the issue. at that time, I came across a
file with extension .FHS (this FHS file is basically a macromedia flash help
skin file).

When i removed the code from this file, shockwave files were not seen on
2000 SERVER. The file has the following code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<sqwebskin version="2.0">

CODE ....
</sqwebskin>

i am assuming that the problem might be due to the above code not running
properly on IIS 6.0.
do i have to make any changes on the IIS 6.0 to run the XML code.
Plz. help.
Thank you.

hi David & AA,

Thanks a lot for all your help.
I finally found the error. i renamed the macromedia flash helps .fhs to .xml
& VOILA, it worked out successfully. :)

My guess is that .fhs also needs to be added to the MIME Type so that it is
downloadable. .xml file is downloadable by default.
