Add thumbnail images to DWF links?

I can't get this to work

from http://freewheel.autodesk.com/developers.aspx
"Sample Code: Add thumbnail images to DWF links
Instead of using plain text to link to DWF files, use this javascript code snippet to automatically generate thumbnail images (which, when clicked, will open the design in the Freewheel viewer). Just add this code to your catalog pages and you'll immediately get rendered images. Learn more."

I've added the javascript code snippet to the end of HTML BODY just above the tag

I then added the two lines below to the HTML body. The frist line references a DWF file on my local drive and the second references a DWF file that I uploaded to Freewheel. But thumbnail images are not generated and the links no not work on the web page.

If I copy "http://freewheel.autodesk.com/use.aspx?path=ADSKFW%3a%2f%2ff3%5c5f%5c3e%5c62%5c74%5cec%5c6a%5c71%5c0a%5c71%5cb7%5c7c%5c2a%5c6a%5c42%5cc4%5c09%5c75%5cb1%5c22%5cOil+Fill-01.dwf" to my browser address bar and hit enter it does bring the file in Freewheel.

Do the DWF files have to be uploaded to Freewheel? Or can they be launched form anywhere accessable to the internet?

This techonlogy looks like just what I need if I could only get it to work.

Any help will be appreciated!

Not sure if this will help you or not but I did
notice that there is an error on the Freewheel site for developers. 
the link they post does not work.  Try adding 'labs' to the address as
shown.  I finally got my models to show after doing this.

The DWF files need to be on the web or uploaded to
Project Freewheel.
