    Is there a way to embed javascript into a Flash EXE files? Either from external js file or i somehow make it inside Flash itself.

    Thanks.

    Eh, mister smarty pants, if i had a browser on disposal i would not ask this

    This is presumed to go on CD as EXE because maybe customer has no browser (or F5 player).

    So, i need EXE and i need JS.

    Possible?

    I dont know whether your CD is specific to a windows audience, but in general I believe there are more people not running Windows (e.g Mac or Linux) than there are without a browser.
    Maybe you can convert the javascript to actionscript and run it inside flash - if it is doing something that cannot be done in flash, you would need a browser anyway

    Well, if for nothing else i need EXE because i cannot count on people to have F5 player installed and i cannot force them to install it.

    I need to pop up a browser window with specific parameters (scroll bars ... etc).

    JS can do it, Flash by itself cannot. So, if i could somehow link from outside JS (stupid example: loadvariable js/myscript.js ?!).

    Argh. Flash6 where are you!!! ...

    Sorry, the only way to call external javascript methods is by having the swf embedded in a web page. The browser is the host for the Javascript.
