You don't have Flash MX player installed!

While making screenshots of old flash sites for TheFWA new site I noticed that a lot of them fail to start because of wrong flash player detection. They tell me that I do not have Flash MX player. Of course damn it I don't! Today is almost 2010 and flash player 10 rules the world. I decompiled one of flash detection SWFs and here we go:

if (getVersion().charAt(4) >= 6)

Do you see the problem here? Today all these SWFs think that I got flash player version 1 which is obviously too old to view the site.
