    security error accessing url

    larcelarcen Level 1
      I'm using flex builder to create a small flex project to learn how to
      call web service in flex,but I encountered a problem really confusing
      me.I created a new file called wstest.mxml and here's its content:
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
      <mx:Application xmlns:mx=" http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml"
      import mx.controls.Alert;
      import mx.rpc.Fault;
      import mx.rpc.events.FaultEvent;

      private function onFault(event :
      FaultEvent) : void
      var f : Fault = event.fault;

      private function list() : void
      <mx:WebService id="adminService" service="Weather"
      wsdl=" http://www.wopos.com/webservice/weather.asmx?
      wsdl" showBusyCursor="true"
      <mx:operation name="getWeather">
      <mx:Label id="lbl"
      <mx:Button label="Call Web Service" click="list()"/>
      After building finished,I ran the generated wstest.swf in the
      directory called bin,the output directory of the flex
      project,everything is ok.But when I put the swf file in another
      position, say, c:/. Then when I ran the swf file an error message was
      returned saying 'Security error accessing url'. I can't understand
      why this happened. It seems the swf file can only run under the bin
      directory. Any one can help? Thanks!

          I have 2 projects stored in the SAME file system location, SAME project/folder structure and calling the SAME webapp/webpage. One of them works, the other gets "Security error accessing url".

          I even copied the entire mxml page content from the working project to the none-working, and vise versa. That one project just keeps giving that error.

          Is there a project property I need to set?

          I don't have crossdomain.xml in my webapp, but not sure that I need it because clearly one of the project run fine without it.

            I hope, you should keep useProxy="false" in WebService tag. it might works for you.
