    Way to Insert SWF(flash)file into PowerPoint 2010

    At the time I want to place SWF into PowerPoint 2010, I would utilize the added Controls dialog which is in Developer tab to place in a Shockwave or Flash object. However in the released x64 PowerPoint 2010, that control is omitted from the dialog.When I hit the Register Custom DLL, there is no obvious file to select, either. When using the Insert/Media button on the ribbon, there are many video formats recognized, but SWF and FLV are not among them. I am looking to insert a SWF using only what is built into PowerPoint 2010 and Flash, so if anyone has info on it, please let me know!

    I have the whole thing secreted using abrax (cleaned up the code). I have done div's before, but this time I complete the nav bar in flash bc of some animation. I was looking for the code how to put .swf files on top of a div. I am inserting Flash swf files into the page. The whole thing works all right, but when its loading I observe the White Box before the swf file show, which does not look good. The swf files are fairly low file size, so the white box is not there for too long, but I am picky, so I need to know how to get rid of it!!

    After digging around in the MS word, I found that yes indeed, the reason I can't get this to work is because I'm running the 64-bit version of Office 2010 and Adobe still hasn't released a 64-bit Flash player control. Heck, 64-bit windows has only been around for about 4 years, so what's the rush? This seems to be the same problem that causes poor performance of Flash movies in 64-bit browsers

    If you have an x64bit version of Office then you are out of luck. In the 64-bit version you can only insert/use controls which are 64-bit. Since there doesn't exist a 64-bit version of the Flash control yet, you will not able to insert a swf in the 64-bit version of PowerPoint.
