Movie not playing in ie6 or ie 5.5


For some reason a flash promo player , yet to go live, is not working on ie6 or ie.5.5

I tested it at work on ie6 and it plays but it doesnt load for some other testers and not at all on 5.5. It is fine in firefox and ie 7 and 8 beta

I thought perhaps there is something off with how its embedded. Any advice would be appreciated.

if (AC_FL_RunContent == 0 || DetectFlashVer == 0) {
alert(“This page requires AC_RunActiveContent.js.”);
} else {
var hasRightVersion = DetectFlashVer(requiredMajorVersion, requiredMinorVersion, requiredRevision);
if(hasRightVersion) { // if we’ve detected an acceptable version
// embed the flash movie
