hello there,
i am working on a flash projector that needs to launch an external .exe file for software integration. on a pc i am using fscommand to run a .bat file and open the .exe.

What would be the method on a Mac platform?

The flash projector is browser and application independent, there is no container.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hi Avery,

I think you would want to use AppleScript to launch the application. You would only need a very simple script, though you'll need someone with a Mac to help you. Applescript is very easy to work with.

Try http://macscripter.net/ for more information. Their magazine section has good tutorials.

best of luck,
