    Button TO Run exe installer file

    ausman
      Does anyone know how to make a button in flash that when clicked will run a given program, which in my case will be 3 buttons assigned to 3 different program install exe files. The same sort of thing as what runs when you install the macromedia programs.
      Thanks!

          this one was a simple one a few version back but Macromedia, in their wisdom, took out the facility to take full control of where to run things from, out. Sand Box issues. Anyway there is some light at the end of the tunnel even if its not very bright.

          You can use fscommand

          fscommand("exec","my.exe");

          You have to put the exe that you want to run in 1 directory above where you are calling it from. Wont let you go down, only up.

          Name that directory fscommand.
