    Hi, download a copy of Flash Studio PRO v2 and you can do this easily with the flashstudio.exec_adv command - check out http://www.mdmforum.com for syntax examples.

    I hope this helps

    i took a closer look at FSP, but I cant figure out how to write an fscommand to open a file. i downloaded a FSCOMMANDS SHOWCASE but didn't see a open file command. how can i write my own fscommand?

    Hi, if you just want open a simple file or execute a program, you can use this command:
    Code:
    file = "myFile.doc";
    fscommand ("flashstudio.exec","file");
    If you want to execute an EXE with custom parameters, you can use flashstudio.exec_adv - all of the 600+ FSCommands are doecumented in the FSP Help File.

    I hope this helps!

    You can also use *********** JStart, no plugins required. It uses the built Flash Play in the Projector file.

    http://jstart.***********.com

    Parameters

    File
    name.exe

    Arguments
    /c

    Please look at the example files provided.

    Good Luck

    There are a number of third party tools you can use, check out this list...

    SWF Studio http://www.northcode.com
    Flash Studio http://www.multidmedia.com
    Jugglor http://www.***********.com
    FlashAnts http://www.flashants.com
    Flash 'N Pack http://www.flashnpack.com
    SWFKit http://www.swfkit.com
    LPFlashEX http://www.logicplus.com.hk

    In addition, use PROXY.EXE to do this. Proxy is a tool I wrote that will let you run BAT files from Flash and avoid the ugly DOS box. The best part? It's absolutely FREE. You can download the utility from www.northcode.com/misc/proxy.zip. There's minimal documentation in the ZIP file, but there was a big disussion about it (and some other utilities I wrote) in this thread...
