    How to restrict to direct acess to SWF file in browser

    Hi friends
    Have a nice day to you all.

    I am working in Macromedia flash 8.

    I have created a photo album. I have created SWF files for each scene and each SWF file
    is called from one small flash exe ,called Title.exe.

    Now the problem is started when some of my users open SWF file directly ( double clicking)
    in browsers like Internet explorer, mozilla etc.

    I want to restrict the user to open the SWF file this way and forced them to open it from within exe only.

    I need help from the experts of macromedia flash.
    Thanks in advance.

    maybe stop them at frame 1 and make title.exe to call gotoAndPlay(2)
    who is this? a word of friendly advice: FFS stop using AS2

    Hi,

    I had this before, it's simple really, I had a var on the exe file, example,

    var internal:String = "execute";

    and in the external swf files i looked for the var.

    on frame 1 of each external swf

    stop();
    if (_root.internal == "execute")
    {
    goto next frame
    }
    else
    {
    fscommand("quit");
    or goto and stop end frame if fscommand unable to work in browser mode;
    }


    I'm sure you can figure it out

    Hi,

    Seems you have nothing to add here Alloy... Other than to pester somebodies thread.
    There are many ways that this could be achieved

    What I would do is make the .swf extension to .rng remove the last character in the former .swf file, when the exe opens the .rng file add the extra missing chracter than launch it

    HI,

    However Alloy, that does not stop somebody trying to open the swf file with flash player even if it has been given a different extension.

    Then not than.

    I think they wanted some working code or files, which he/she has almost been given in posts above.
