You cannot access any local resources from a Flex app running under the Flash Player hosted in a browser. It is a security thing. No workarounds, well maybe, but very complicated.
If you must access the local file system, you will have to run your app under AIR.
Running an app under Flex Builder is deceiving because FB is installed into a trusted sandbox and can access most anything. (but not the local file system)
Before you go too far, deploy your app to a web server and solve the security problems.
Lets just execute the damn jerks that make this security crap necessary.
actually i found a workaround.
I added "-use-network=false" to my compiler options and now it works.
although i agree that those "people" who make all this security crap necessary deserve a firing squad.
I tried adding the "-use-network=false" in the compiler options but the same error occurs. Is there other ways to solve this issue?
