When I run a html file with an embedded cdf file, I get the request that I should install cdf player. Both my computers already have cdf player installed. A specific example of this is in the file http://www.abstractmath.org/MM/Mathematica/RiemannSumExp.html

The code in the was created by Mathematica 10.2. I have posted many other html files that contain embedded cdf files which produce the same results. They were made with previous versions of Mathematica. A couple of them are

http://www.abstractmath.org/Word%20Press/?p=4532 (published in 2012)

http://www.abstractmath.org/Word%20Press/?p=2711 (2011)

All the files I published worked properly until about six months ago.

  • $\begingroup$ The first two links work for me (without a request to install the cdf player) but the third line (p=2711) just hangs with "Loading Computable Document Format..." for 5 cdf's. (Windows 7, Internet Explorer, CDF Player 10.2). $\endgroup$ – JimB Nov 9 '15 at 21:03
  • $\begingroup$ I note that the source for the third link has "< ![CDATA[ // < ![CDATA[// < ![CDATA[" just before "var cdf = new cdfplugin();" where the other two do not. I know very little about HTML but that is at least a difference among the three links. $\endgroup$ – JimB Nov 9 '15 at 21:15
  • $\begingroup$ That third source was produced by Word Press, which messes with code in a very annoying way. Or it did three years ago, anyway. I know how to fix that and I will. But I still have the main problem: other people's computers run the cdf file but neither of my computers does (both are Windows 7). Thanks for the comment $\endgroup$ – SixWingedSeraph Nov 9 '15 at 21:32

The reason the embedded CDF file is that embedded CDF files no longer work in Google Chrome. I have switched to Firefox, and it works fine. (Some older Gyre&Gimble files still have problems but I know how to fix them.)
