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?
