Im new to flex (just downloaded) and I wanted to know if it
was possible to create .exe files (standalone)...
and second, is it possible to create a program like the
google desktop, where the program is always on top, and when a
window is maximized, it is contrained to the part of the screen
that is NOT covered by the desktop?
I believe the answer is "no" to the first question - Flex
creates SWF's, not exe's. I think this answers your second question
also (as the SWF runs in a browser). If you are looking for a long
term desktop solution, research Apollo on adobe labs
If anyone can contradict by answers above, please do,
