How to convert Flash EXE's to SWF files for embedding to web pages

I found a useful tool to convert flash EXE files (like the ones linked in my previous post), to SWF files, for easy embedding into HTML files. Northcode make a free tool, just run it, choose your exe file and it will save a SWF file in the same folder. To embed the file into a HTML page, rename the SWF file and add this code to your page:
<object height="400" width="600"> <param name="movie" value="FlashFile.swf"> <embed src="FlashFile.swf" height="400" width="600"></embed> </object>

Hi friend... I copy your script and past it in my blog (html) exactly, with the same name of my swf file, but dont work. I need to upload the file? Why can I do this? Sorry I am from Brazil and my english is very bad, (and my experience too).
Thanks for your help

The code works fine.
Flash2X EXE Packager can also do this. I've used it for 2 months.

I reach to this blog through google search. I downloaded the software from the new link suggested by Dan.
I converted a flash exe to swf and tried to run as you suggested but it shows a white block only. same with the flash player.
If you can suggest some thing.... or some version conflicts??
