I have it working now .. so far, without using _root as prefix

I had a typo error in the path to the movie .. 
and so the movie was not being compiled as version 8 and not recognising the class.

Viewing HTML source in this demo gave me  "8.0.15" to use as version.



Now I'm looking at next step of including ExpressInstall code in lzx app


so that an auto update to Flash version 8 can be launched if not installed.

All you need to do is place the script somewhere in your Flash class path, and place this code on the first frame of your swf:

if (ExpressInstall.init()) {
}The ExpressInstall.init() function returns true or false depending on whether the Express Install was started. If it starts, it returns true, if it doesn’t start, it returns false.


This ExternalInterface API gives a clean way of passing vars between multiple 
swf's in same HTML wrapper .. and communications with HTML, SVG objects.
