    Hello

    I"m trying to create a Flash Projector that allows a user to install software onto their computer.

    For example: Click here to install Eudora onto your computer
    Click here to install Netscape onto your computer


    Also, I'd like to create an "exit" button in order to quit a Flash Projector movie.

    I'm using Flash 5 on a Mac.

    Thanks

    Andy

    click the button and select the Action FSCommand.

    Drop the menu under "Commands for standalone player:" and select exec

    Place the path to your exectuable in the Arguments line.

    in order to exit the flash project
    on the button put this action:
    on (release) {
    fscommand ("quit");
    }

    Thanks, guys, for pitching in with answers. That's what makes this community great, and will make it a valuable resource for you, too.

    Oh, BTW, welcome to the Flashkit boards!

    Thanks guys

    I'd just like to thank the folks that replied to my post.

    I've been able to resolve the problem based on this feedback.

    You might be interested to know that Macromedia Support suggested that executing a file from a Mac Flash projector was not possible. This group proved them wrong.

    Thanks again.
