Following up of my last article “how to display animated Logo in the masthead” [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken]

This article is for displaying the animated logo
in the portal Login Page. The idea behind this article is to check whether FLASH is installed on the end user machine to display the animated logo. If FLASH is

  set swControl = CreateObject("ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash." + CStr(i))
