I am still having problems.

Firstly, using Google Chrome with the options 'Flash Ask (default) set,  if I go here: http://www.weather-display.com/windy/gb/flash/

'Click to enable Adobe Flash Player' appears. I click on it, allow Flash and it works.

I have added your code:

Code: [Select]
<OBJECT classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
 codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0"
 WIDTH="90%" HEIGHT="90%" id="wdlv6_09.swf" ALIGN="">
 <PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="wdlv6_09.swf?http://www.weather-display.com/windy/wdl_config2.xml">
 <PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high>
 <PARAM NAME=wmode VALUE=opaque>
 <PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=#FFFFFF>
 <EMBED src="wdlv6_09.swf?http://www.weather-display.com/windy/wdl_config2.xml" quality=high bgcolor=#FFFFFF  WIDTH="90%" HEIGHT="90%" NAME="wdlv6_09.swf" ALIGN=""
 TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"> </EMBED>
</OBJECT>

to my website here: http://217.199.187.197/otronics.co.uk/Weather/html/crt_live_data.html (but adjusted the code to my URL's)

I load the page, 'Click to enable Adobe Flash Player' appears. I click on it and allow Flash but nothing happens.

I am so almost there.

What am I missing?

can you post the code snippet you have changed to?
you could always change to using the steel gauges
this has been warned that problems with flash will occur for a year now and has been recommended to change to the steel gauges (html5 based)

Hi, possibly because the wdlv6_09.swf is in the parent directory i.e weather/ but your WDL page is in weather/html/ and the code is expecting it there?

Good catch Martyn, I looked for the .swf and didn't find it...
