    Externally loading a SWF

    Ashy7345
      Okay, I am making my portfolio and I am having problems loading the galleries into the main index/main page.
      I am using the "loader" component, and telling it to load the EXACT file name of the SWF.
      This is the error I get:

      Error opening URL 'file:///Macintosh%20HD/Users/ARP/Library/Caches/TemporaryItems/index_graphic.swf'

      I have an index_graphic.fla & index_graphic.swf
      WHY IS THIS NOT LOADING?!
      I am a newbie at flash, so I need it to be straight forward.
      THANKS A MILLION. I really need to finish this tonight!!!!!!!!

          Save your Flash movie to a specific location, maybe a folder on your desktop. Then put the .swf into that folder.

          If you have not saved the file that you are currently working on, then Flash has no idea what the relative path for that file. What you are seeing in the error is the Mac default working file path.
