What is the output type?
Where are you running the output?
How exactly did you link to the SWF?
What created the SWF?
The project is output as WebHelp. The files are stored on the same server,
in another directory. As I mentioned, the links work fine when played
directly, except for the warning message.
I linked by adding a TOC page and putting the link into it via the Link to:
Someone else created the .swf files - I'm not sure what they used.
Does that help?
Okay, that does help a bit.
When you look at one of the links in the WebHelp, are you able to tell whether the link is actually pointing to the correct location? I know you said the files are "stored on the same server", which seems to imply that they aren't part of your WebHelp output.

When I Generate, the link points to file:///c:/users/...../www.[website

since it's a client's site, and I don't want them to see something that
Replying to myself to say that it worked! I had assumed, wrongly, that the default would be Web Address, since that was the first on the list, but it was File. Changed the dropdown to Web Address and added the link again, and it worked.
Thanks for asking the right questions, Rick!
Glad you managed to sort it!
