    FAQ (please read before posting)

    The Standalone & Applications forum is a collection of several years worth of information about using Flash with other applications and third party tools. The chances are good that you're not the first one to encounter the problem you're having. A simple search will often provide the answers you need immediately. There's a wealth of information here if you're willing to look for it.

    For anyone in need of a refrehser course, these are the rules you agreed to follow when you joined FlashKit. Failure to play by the rules can get you banned temporarily or even for life!

    Some of the highlights are...

    You will not behave in an abusive and/or hateful manner, and will not harrass, threaten, nor attack anyone.

    You will not use profanity in our forums, and will neither post with language or content that is obscene, sexually oriented, or sexually suggestive nor link to sites that contain such content.

    You will not use these Forums for the purposes of sharing or distributing viruses, licenses, registration information, software keys, "cracks," or other information designed to do harm to or allow unlawful access to any computer hardware, software, networks, or any other systems.

    You will, if asked by a representative of the Forums, cease posting any content, and/or links to content, deemed offensive, objectionable, or in poor taste by the staff of the Forums.

    You will not post advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, or solicitations, all of which are inappropriate and prohibited in the Forums. See http://www.internet.com/mediakit for information about advertising on FlashKit.

    We've had some problems with this last point from vendors who just don't seem to understand. FlashKit is free to join, but it isn't free to run and it is not a public venue like usenet. Jupiter Media does not exist to subsidize your marketing efforts. They own the site. They make all the rules.

    That doesn't mean you can't mention your product here, but replying to every post with "try my product" is not helpful and just adds noise to the board.

    There's a special "sticky" thread in this forum for vendors to make announcements about new products and that's the ONLY place such announcements will be permitted. Announcements and blatant advertising outside that thread will be deleted.

    Q: How can I add a button to my projector that opens an Explorer Window (not a browser) at the drive where my projector was launched from, even when it's launched from a CD?

    A: Windows

    Put this bit of ActionScript in your button on(release) action and it will open an Explorer window at the root of the CD. Once you know the drive letter you can extend the path after the ":" to any folder on the CD that you want to target.

    Code:
    drv = _url.substr(8,1); 
    getURL(drv + ":");
    A: Macintosh

    The following AppleScript will do the job on the MAC and will open Finder at the location where ever the script is located.

    Code:
    tell application "Finder" 
       open folder of (path to me)
    end tell

    Q: How can I add a custom icon to my projector so it shows my icon instead of the default Flash icon?

    A: Windows

    Resource Hacker or eXeScope are FREE tools that will allow you to modify any existing EXE file (not just Flash projectors) to change the icon, string resources, dialogs and more. They don't give you complete control of the EXE file, but they will allow you to make simple branding changes.

    Resource Hacker http://www.users.on.net/~johnson/resourcehacker/ ($FREE)
    eXeScope http://hp.vector.co.jp/authors/VA003525/emysoft.htm#6 ($FREE)

    A: Macintosh

    ResFool allows you to edit Mac resource files and bundles directly, displaying all the individual resources in the bundle, including those stored in individual files or in data-fork based resource files.
