Hello, using DIrector MX 2004, win platform. I made a movie
that contains only one .dir file, it's a slideshow, so i used only
some behaviours for the buttons, some music and two buttons that
allow to send an e-mail or visit my site.
The problem is that i create the projector (for win, mac and
mac classic), and everything works ok in windows. But i can't open
the .osx or .classic in mac (it says can't find the program to open
it). Also, i find strange that when i publish director creates ok
.exe, but for mac it creates some zipped files (say "my
movie.osx.hqx", the same for classic), so i tried to unzip those
files before burning my cd-rom. I put some xtras in the cd, but i
suspect it's not he problem.
Anyway, do i have to put in the cd-rom the .dxr file of the
movie or is it unnecessary? (i tried both ways, i can't yet
understand why i have to put that file in my cd, as in windows
everything goes ok.
Thanks for all.

You *cannot* do this on a PC. The reason the file is
published to a
compressed format is so that it can be safely extracted on a
Mac. If you
extract on a Windows machine the resource forks are destroyed
won't then work on a Mac.
You *must* extract on a Mac and should therefore burn CDs
