It looks like you're trying to open an application. Is this necessary or
could you simply navigate to another Director file without making it
into a projector? IOW, what is your ultimate aim?
The bottom line is when I click on a button I want it to open another director movie. When I build the link on the button, I'm telling it to open the director movie instructions.exe, and that works fine on a PC. The problem I'm running into is when I publish the project for playing on both PC and MAC. The button with the link is looking for the instructions.exe file and when played on a Mac, the file is changed to instructions.osx, therefore the link will not work as it's looking for the .exe extension not the .osx extension you use for a MAC.
Is there a way you can include both the .exe and .osx extenions within the lingo of the button or another way to do this?
I know the code I'm using now shows PDF, but it's just something I copied and seems to work in a PC environment. As I mentioned, I'm not a code wiz like most folks, so I'll copy something from the forums, modify and test. If it works, I'll use it.
I appreciate any help you can throw my way.

So you should try using _movie.go(1, "movieName") to navigate to your
second file - that way you don't need to turn it too into a projector
(and you can leave the extension off the filename when using the above
I did find another work around and that's instead of publishing the movie as PC & MAC at the same time, publish the PC first, change the .exe to .osx extension on the button link and then publish as MAC. An extra step, but worked great.
Thanks again for you help. I know I'll be back.
