    ActionScript to list directory contents on local hard drive?

    I am using Flash MX and I would like to create some ActionScript that would read a directory from a local hard drive and be able to list the directory's content to the screen...

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Bill

    Can I use the fscommand's "exec" for a website desinged in flash or is the fscommand only good for projectors (.exe files)?

    Thanks

    You did say "local hard drive", so yes I presumed this was for a projector.

    If you're thinking of checking my hard drive content when online without me allowing you to do so, think again!

    Hi.. actually the best you can do is use something like ASP. You can use the file system object to create a files collection then reconstruct the information in the collection in flash.. to make a windows explorer style mc if you like.
