    INdicating SWF version on mxmlc command line?

    kjsperl
      I have been unable to embed SWF version 7 files into FLEX SDK 3.2. Is there any way on the mxmlc command line to indicate that embedded SWF files were built as Version 7 SWF objects? I am just fishing for a solution here. The error I get from the compile is "unable to create source" for any version 7 SWF I have. The SWF files were built with Quark Interactive Designer and I am caught between a rock and hard place. Quark saying their SWF's are standard SWF files (version 7) and Adobe saying there must be something wrong with the SWF files. That's what I get with trying to get these two environments to talk to each other.

          Do they have to be embedded? What happens if you load them through
          swfLoader?

            AMy,

            Thats getting a bit beyond my ability. In any case, I have been able to get the Quark Version 7 SWF to work with another page flip environment by discovering an undocumented switch for indicating SWF version 7 (it was defaulting to SWF version 8) and all works fine. So, that is something.

            If I could have some way of telling FLEX SDK that the SWF's I am embedding are version 7, I might be home free.
