    Just link to it. Browsers can't open .zip or . exe directly, they will offer the user the usual chance to open or save it:
    on (release) {
    getURL ("whatever.zip");
    }

    Try to keep the .zips or .exes that you want accessable in the same folder as the .swf.

    As a afterthought, maybe you have only tested your project out on your comp, not from the internet. Sometimes these tests don't function locally. Get some freebie webspace to test out your stuff, to see what works online.

    Nice to see some one else still using Flash 5. MX sucks.
