what is Flash MX server? or you mean Flash Communication Server?

what is WTF?

You need to go to MM's site, click on the Flashcom server dev link, from there down load the Flashcom server components.

When you run the trial it sets up a local server for the fcs if you scan your hard drive for the server folder you'll see inside it there is a folder called flashcom apps inside that are some working samples.

In Flash MX you can make all your own stuff or use the Flashcom server compnents to build stuff in minutes.

Good Luck.

BTW... WTF = What the Fu.. which really doesn't need to be used.

Thanks, that helped a bit.

Now, is the trial edition suppose to come with an .exe file? Or is the admin.swf the file you are suppose to click on?

agent vivid

the admin interface is mainly html

and there's a dos executable 'start service' and 'stop service' which basically starts and stop the server from running

you can put the start service one in your startup menu

i would think that the trial version is set up identical to the paid version

when u have clickd the "start server" and flashcom is running, you go to the "applications" folder where flashcom is installed and cilck on "index.html", or click here http://dataproffsen.mine.nu/flashcom/flashcom_help/FlashCom/ContextHelp_Dev.htm

Go to the application samples, and read the instructions. Nevermind the samples that are allready done, you have to make your own. The instructions makes it all really easy.

The important thing to know to make it work to begin with is your ipnumber. Use it to connect your flash aplications to flashcom even if you dont have your own server.

Instead of using

You use:


doc_myApp could be anything, just make sure that you make a FOLDER with the same name in the flashcom APPLICATIONS folder.

This is what your need to get started, and do read thru the documentation. You can allso find more stuff in the
flash refference panel.
Good luck and happy flashcommin!
