    Question [AS3]How to open an URL in the Default Browser from a Flash Standalone Projector .exe

    Hi,

    we are developing a small application wih Flash CS3 which will be released as a standalone Flash Projector.exe.

    We want to have a link to our website in the flash application that should open our webpage in the Default Browser of the System.

    We tried:
    PHP Code:
    navigateToURL(new URLRequest("http://www.google.com"),"_blank"); 
    But when I click on that link in our standalone.exe, on my system "ultraedit" gets opened and it tries to open a path on the local system and the webpage adress after that. "C:\Projects\Inflation\http:\\www.google.de".

    What are we doing wrong?

    If you use the usual

    on (release) {getURL("http://www.google.com", "_blank");
    }

    That should do it.

    I'm pretty sure it does as i've just recently used it myself when making .exe files using flash cs3.
