    Button Script Needed

    gettechnical
      I'm fairly new to the Flash world and recently downloaded Flash 9 Prof to try. I am creating a CD with a Flash animated menu and several button options. Is there and ActionScript that will open an external file in its associated application (rather than in a browser w/ getURL).

      Perhaps fscommand, but from what I have read, it may require an executable. I'd like to avoid adding more executables on the CD to confuse the user or having to put the files I want to open in a folder they won't recognize (like fscommand).

      Too bad Adobe doesn't write an ActionScript function like "getfile" or something similar. Any suggestions?
