Hi

You will need to check the path of all the three elements, the xml, the swf and the pictures.... the path mentioned in the xml should be relative to the domain name...

the easy way but a crude one is to copy all the flash files to the root directory... and call the flash swf from there...the images should be copied as it is in the standalone version and similary the xml file... it will work because it requires less adjusting of the file path

try it if u can
