    Question Publish exe for Mac

    I am trying to publish an exe file for both PC and Mac in CS3. I am cool with the PC setup and I have done this in the past with hdx files but in CS3 it creates an app folder without instructions. I looked in this folder and the file name does not exist only a movie.swf file in the resources folder. Why did they change all of this? How do I set up the files now for Mac? Please help

    The app folder should contain a LOT more than just a SWF file in the Resources folder. This is what I see when exporting a simple test FLA as a Macintosh projector.

    \Contents\MacOS\Flash Player
    \Contents\Resources\Flash Player.rsrc

    You have to move the entire contents of the output folder to the Mac, it's an application bundle now, not an HQX file like it was in previous versions.

    Cool Thanks

    Yes I stated testing on a Mac and saw how it operates with the app folder, I just got a little nervous before diving into the pool. Seems to be nice and warm after all. Thanks for the help.... 3.5 karma points!!!
