Thanks for your reply.
I have to confess I am a little confused by all of that info and not really too sure in what area my swf falls. Will it work once I place the file on the remote server? I don't particulary want to go adding paths on my PC to a server somewhere else in the world!
From your explanation, I assume new security settings being introduced to prevent access to my hard drive, the swf will only fail when on my hard drive.
Is that right?
Exactly. There are three ways you can go about this.
First you could change your Flash Player trust settings to trust Flash files on your desktop. ( Follow this link to see how)
You could upload your Flash files to a server and test them there.
Finally you could write a Flash trust file in a Text editor.
(Literally you would type the file location of your Flash file into a simple text file. (.txt) Then place this file here: C:\Documents and Settings\ your_account\Application Data\Macromedia\Flash Player\#Security\FlashPlayerTrust)
Excellent - thanks for your help.
