          You need to supply more information. Which platform did you build the
          Mac projector on? What do you mean by "can't open" - you realise you
          need to extract the projector from the archive the PC version of
          Director creates for MacOS? Are you sure you're using MX and not MX2004?

            What do you mean by "can't open" - you realise you ....... Macbook Pro
            does not recognize the file :
            I get this file myprojector.osx.hqx

            I have a Macbook Pro (Macintel) with MacOSX Tiger and when I try to execute
            it a window appears and ask me with what application to open...

            I'm using MX2004.

              You need to copy the .hqx file onto your Mac. DO NOT OPEN IT ON A PC.
              When you unpack it on the Mac, then you will get the .osx version, and
              if you wrote it correctly, it will open at that point. If you unpack
              the .osx file on a PC, then it will definitely not work. Having Mac
              executables on a PC filesystem destroys the resource fork and causes the
              file to become corrupt. That is why Director packs it into the .hqx
              archive to begin with.

                As Mike and I alluded to, the file that MX 2004 creates is an archive
                that must be extracted - on a Mac - before you have an executable. In
                general, you'd use Stuffit to manage (extract) .hqx archives, but there
                may be other Mac tools for this.
