Problem with .exe files from Flash

Oct 29, 2009 5:09 AM



I have created a presentation in Flash, which consists of 6 separate files. Navigation buttons on each file, load a new file when clicked, so to all intents and purposes, it looks to the viewer like one integrated file when played as a presentation.


The whole thing works beautifully when running from .swf files, but the client has requested .exe files to run on their PCs. I have saved the files as .exe files, but when these are tested on a PC, the first file opens and runs perfectly, but the navigation links do not load the new file - you are just faced with a white screen.


I know all my Actionscript is fine, because as I say, it works perfectly when I test it on the Mac and it works perfectly on a PC when using .swf files (it opens in IE and uses the Flash Player plug-in). It's just the .exe files that are not working - is there anything I need to do to get this to work?


Many thanks for any help.
