All of our assets share fonts using a run time shared library (RSL) so that we dont need to embedd the fonts in each and every seperate swf. The swf looks for a sharedFonts.swf file one level/directory up from where it is currently at. Inside the assets' RSL the url is ../sharedFonts.swf.
So with a program like Adobe Bridge I just need to find out where Bridge is previewing the file from and then one directory up from that I need to place in the sharedFonts.swf. The place that I am viewing it from is already setup that way and works correctly if I simply open the swf without using some kind of program. So my guess is that Bridge takes the swf and places it somewhere within itself and then previews it or there is simply a bug with Bridge since currently it is just crashing.
I have some logs using windows event viewer and that shows me that the module that is failing is AdobeSWFL.dll which I am guessing is library to preview items.

Faulting module path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\APE\3.1\AdobeSWFL.dll
Has anyone ran into something like this before? Any ideas on what to do here?
I'm having the same problem. A coworker showed me how he uses Bridge to navigate all of his Photoshop and Illustrator files. As a Flash artist, I tried using Bridge to preview SWFs, and discovered the auto-crash feature.
Bridge crashes every time I click on a SWF that uses a runtime shared library. Frustrating!
Were it not for this bug, our studio's Flash artists would likely integrate Bridge into our pipeline. A fix, or directions on fixing the issue would be greatly appreciated.
