Shockwave is a way of playing interactive programs in your
Web browser. For Microsoft Internet Explorer, it is an ActiveX
control. For other browsers, it is a plug-in. Either way,
the Shockwave content can appear inside a Web page in your
browser. Shockwave is made by Adobe (formerly Macromedia).

I can't get Shockwave or Flash to work, can you help?
The Virtual Quarry Tour requires Shockwave, other areas of
the site require Flash. Shockwave and Flash are extensions
to your Web browser. They are both made by Adobe. You use
Shockwave and Flash to view the Virtual Tour the same way
you use Microsoft Internet Explorer or another browser to
view text and graphics.
To get Shockwave working, explore the links on this page.
You may need to get in touch with your IT department if you
follow the instructions and still cannot get it to work. We
hope this information helps, but please contact Adobe
if you have further problems.
