    cd downloads

    hi,

    i'm currently putting a cd together as a .exe, with a download section of various screensavers, wallpapers etc... but i can't seem to get them to download off the cd, there in a seperate folder called 'assets', and i've tried linking to them with the extension .exe and .zip, is there a way to do this as i'm nearing my deadline.
    cheers if you can help

    ive tried using fscommands and this won't work

    If you use getURL, you can start a "download". That should work fin for either EXE or ZIP files. Assuming that the assets folder is off the root of the CD, something like getURL("/assets/file.zip") should do the trick.

    cheers, i've gave that a wizz, but it won't start downloading, is this due to the cd not been in a browser. i have managed to get a .exe to work but not the zips which i really need to download off the cdrom on to the computer. if you have any ideas or know of a really cheap or free package to make installers that would be great.
