The save function was removed after Flash 5 for security purposes unfortunately as it was very nice. The only way to use it now is to actually use Flash 5 to create the projector. I am unsure about passing arguments to an application but Northcode can probably help more with that. You could also use something like SWF Studio which would allow you to save to a text file, ini file, database and other formats as well. Plus you can open any application with arguments.

I'm not that hard to imitate. Just make some random negative claim at Apple or anything else for that matter and then have nothing to back it up.
In addition to jasonsplace's reply , you could as well check Jstart from
"flash jester dot com". It allow you to pass paramters to all kind of applications you call.
Also, if the second file is an another flash EXE than perhaps you should check
Shared Object. It's a native flash's form of cookies that works locally as well
as from browser. You could store the information using *sol files and read
it from another file.
Again, as long as the second application is Flash Projector, otherwise, 3rd party tools.
