    Flash CS3 - Launching exe from standalone minimizes main exe

    I have an issue with a flash standalone .exe:

    My main .exe is set to fullscreen ( fscommand("fullscreen",true); )

    When launching another exe from the main exe ( fscommand("exec", "myfile.exe"); ) the main exe minimizes and is no longer running in fullscreen mode.

    this is only an issue with flash 9. If I publish my main exe in flash 8 it remains fullscreen when launching external exe files.

    Anyone familiar with a fix for this bug?

    Thanks in advance

    I first wrote about this just over a year ago on my blog (link below). The only workaround is to revert to a slightly older version of the Standalone Flash Player (pre 9.0r115) that doesn't exhibit this behavior. I believe this was a security feature that was added deliberately to protect users from pop-under applications.
