    how oh how oh how do I set a flash button to download a file to a users hard drive. I want to offer wallpaper to site users, but can only get the jpeg file to open in a browser window.

    I've tried to find the answer to this elsewhere, but you try searching for "download file"; its an avalanche!!!

    help greatfully received,

    Hi and Welcome to FlashKit!

    Most programs will try to parse whatever program you try to access with a compatable program - this means that if you link a JPG file, then the browser will think "Hey, I can open this!" and Voila!...it will. So, I might package the graphic up in a .ZIP file - which most browsers compute as a download file and will run the download dialog to handle it.
