    creating windows projector on mac to open apps

    I did some searches, found what I needed, but couldn't get it to work.

    I'm authoring on a mac mx2004, but outputing an exe and testing on a pc

    File Structure:
    fscommand (folder)

    this.onPress = function() {
    fscommand("exec", "mydocs.bat");

    bat fie:
    @ echo off
    start pleaseOpen.doc

    Does work. Please help. Thanks.

    I wrote a utility called PROXY that will help on the PC side. It will let you run BAT files from Flash and avoid the ugly DOS box. The best part? It's absolutely FREE. You can download the utility from www.northcode.com/misc/proxy.zip. There's minimal documentation in the ZIP file, but there was a big disussion about it (and some other utilities I wrote) in this thread...


    In addition there's a new product from Atomik Software called Fire-Up that will let you launch files on Mac OS 9/Classic, Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows 98, Windows ME and Mac OS X. It's selling for EUR 45.00
