    Opening PDFs from a Projector

      Can anyone tell me how to open a PDF in Acrobat from a button in your projector (for CD-ROM usage)?

          I am fairly certain that Flash does not provide this functionality. Using
          getURL you can request a PDF through the browser (which may or may not open
          Acrobat depending.)

          You may need to use Macromedia Director or some other app for this. I have
          done this in Director and can supply the lingo (director's version of
          actionscript) to accomplish this task.
