Automatically detect a need for Downloading Flash and popup a dialog box

Hi,

I would to know how to detect that Macromedia Flash is not installed on the client system or have an older version? I want to detect this and prompt the user to download Flash Player or upgrade if user does not have the latest player installed on your system.

I need to show a Flash Video when the user visits my website. If the user's system has the required version of Flash installed, then it is working fine. Otherwise, it is just saying "loading" and does nothing.

Any input is appreciated.

Thanks
Eric Pascarello
