Can I keep flash from installing when I navigate to my page?

Recommended Posts

We have a system that presents user tooltips with video. We use the <object> tag and use the flash OCX clsid. All this works fine unless the user doesn't have the flash control installed. If it isn't installed, when I navigate to the web page, the Adobe installer starts up and this is most undesirable.

 

Is there a way to prevent installation when the flash control is not already installed?

 

 

I do have code that deletes the flash node if I know the control is not on the machine. But I first have to load the web page to enumerate its data but before control is given to me, the installer runs. I'm hoping there is some attribute/property I can use to indicate that no "automatic" installation should occur.

I may have posted too soon. I opened one of our xml files and saw the "codebase" attribute. If all I have to do is delete that to prevent a download I'm going to feel rather dumb.
