    First of all, you can't open an executable file over the internet ... if you make a link to the file the user will be asked if they want to download it (or open it, which still requires them downloading the file first), letting THEM decide if they want to take the security risk.

    Secondly you are going to scare the HELL outta people by linking them to an executable file (viruses etc. - ".exe" always makes people skittish).

    This aside, to make a projector go fullscreen all you need is the following code in the first frame of the movie ...

    Code:
    fscommand ("fullscreen", "true");
    fscommand ("allowscale", "false");
    That should do the trick. But just be careful about going fullscreen ... people also get scared when the "close window" icon disappears. Put this code on an exit button which is CLEARLY visible at ALL times:

    Code:
    fscommand ("quit");

    thanks

    Hi!!

    Thanks for that info.. I guess that if i wanted to put my projector file on a cd and i put your bits of code into it. then it would open up full screen too if I make the cd auto play?

    Cheers
