    Cant double-click SWFs any more....strange

    Hi all

    Suddenly this week, I am no longer able to doubleclick SWFs on my PC and have them open up in their own little SWF preview window. It is asking me to choose how I want to open them. There was no option for any Flash player, so I have had to settle for Firefox fo now which is annoying as it has changed all my SWF icons to the FF logo

    I have Flash CS3 installed, and use Flash regularly to create banners and things, so this is a pain

    Any idea whats suddenly happened and how Id fix it?

    Thanks alot

    The Flash Player should be here: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Flash CS3\Players

    Most likely during an update of FireFox, the "file association" for the .swf got changed.
    Go into your Control Panel, and under "Default Programs" you can set/change which files are associatated (opened by) with each program or file extention type.
    Best wishes,
