I need to call methods in a dll file or access a special device from flash , the dll has been installed on the local machine .
And now I could call the methods through ane in AIR , and through the dll I could access the device on the machine .
What I finaly want is access the device in the browser with flash .
It seems that the air application could be loaded and run in browser through badge.swf .
But when the air application has ane , it could not be exported as an Signed air package , it just could be exported as a Singed Native installer .
So is there some way that I could access the device on the local machine or call the driver dll from flash ?
Technically, users can give permission for file or socket access, so some other app could wrap the DLL and listen to your web app, but the key is, the users have to give permission. Otherwise, virus writers would use Flash all the time.
