I don't believe that you can import a projector into another. Your main
options would be
* Launch a published director movie (exe) using the open command
* Open a dir file as a Movie in a Window (MIAW)
* Insert a dir into another dir as a Linked Director Movie
Each method has its pros and cons. It's tough to recommend a method
without know more detail of your program. Regardless, its something that
is likely to require a fair amount of work. I suspect delivering it
tomorrow is going to be a challenge.
thanks man !
I think it<s not so challenging to deliver for tomorw :D
I used a "open (QUOTE & the moviePath & "clic_ar.exe")" to open each relative part (partA, B, ....) and a "halt" to close the main window. its not the better way to do that but it works !!!
thanks again, n hvae a nice one bro!
You can publish a single "stub" movie to .exe and then use _movie.go()
to navigate between (protected) Director files.

As Sean mentioned, just create one EXE (stub projector) that links to your
Director movies. You can convert DIRs into DXR through the Xtras menu. DXR is a
protected format so will prevent people having access to the source - you cannot
open DXRs in Director.
I have a tutorial on creating a stub projector at:
To link one movie to another, you can use:
go to movie "nameofmovie"
where nameofmovie is the file name minus the extension.
you can use the 'Jump to Movie' in the Library Palette in the Controls category.
