The "projector" IS NOT an installer. It's EXACTLY what the name says. A Flash Projector, or "standalone" player if you will.
It's an app. Move it to your Program Files (x86)/Adobe folder.
Ah, I see what you mean. As in, once downloaded, that's it. No further installation required.
Thanks for that C F McBlob.
So it looks like that's not going to solve my wider problem, which is how to play software seemingly based on Macromedia Projector - since FlashPlayer, which I understood (maybe wrongly) to be a successor of Macromedia Projector, won't play it.
I'll post a separate question about this.
Many thanks for your help.
Macromedia Projector, is unfortunately, an obsolete piece of software. I have one app that still uses it, but it was built into the app by the developer. If your software doesn't have that, it's not likely that the developer is even still around to update it.

How does that software invoke the Projector?
Projector basically plays local .swf files. In order to play .swf files automatically you need to make the appropriate file association.
O.P. is referring to "Macromedia Director". It's a old app from the "pre MX days". I think the last time I saw it was 2004.
