    Shared Object Issues

    Flash_Grl
      Hi guys,

      I recently converted an application from Flash 6 to Flash 8 only to notice a huge issue with the shared objects. My original application (player 6) was storing the user's account in a shared object at #SharedObjects/xxxx/mydomain.com/myswf.swf/myso.sol

      I uploaded my new application to the exact same location, and the shared object is now being stored at: #SharedObjects/xxxx/ www.mydomain.com/myswf.swf/myso.sol

      This is causing me to lose existing user information, and people will have to reregister. Any ideas? Has anyone encountered this yet?

      Thanks in advance!

          I've a related question: how do you get the localPath working? I tried "C:\someFolder", but I keep on getting the error message:

          saveToSharedObj error: Couldn't access specified shared object. Error for DataSet 'myDS'.

          The manual states:

          dataSet.saveToSharedObj(objName, [localPath])

          and my exact call is:

          myDS.saveToSharedObj("myFile", "myPath");

          Has anyone got the locaPath to work?

          Thank you in advance,

            Flash has it's own way and you can't force its paths.
            Your users will have to re register.
