I am creating Flash swf files and stand alone Projector files off of my PC, and it seems that Quicktime wants to open all of my swf files. The stand alone Projector files are now .hqx. i understand its *supposed* to be this (according to Flash help), but does this make it a true stand alone Projector file that doesn't need the Flash Player?

I 'm dealing with that issue to for the moment

OK , when you create your flash movie you can Export it to PC standalone or Macintosh standalone ... obviously you figured thatone out already , since you were able to create an HQX ...

the hqx file is sort off a MAcintosh Zip file ...

When you bring your HQX movie to the mac and double click on it ... it will be unzipped and you will get a standalone player movie just like the one you got for the PC ...

so it runs OK on its own

hope this helps you out ...
