Is there anyway of open a test.pdf directly from a flash.exe without using a .bat file. i read a tute were it showed how to do it using a pipe eg.. FS Command ("Exec","Start | test.prd") but i have being told this only works with Flash 3, does anybody know how to do this using Flash 4...

launch FS "exec" and then path to Acrobat, then the filename.
