          on the first frame place :
          fscommand("fullscreen", "true");

          check help files for "fscommand" to find more useful commands for projector use.

            Thanks,
            I looked up fscommand, and what i needed to do was use this:
            fscommand("exec", "application.exe")
            Where you put the exe in a folder named "fscommand". Instead I wrote a .bat file and ran that:

            fscommand("exec", "runApp.bat");

            The bat file contained:
            ---------------------------
            @ echo off
            start ../application.exe
            exit
            ---------------------------------------

            this ran application.exe from the location of the application which called it, rather than in the fscommand folder.
            Hope this helps others too.

            Cheers,

              let say you want to load flash2.exe from flash1.exe
              create a folder called "fscommand" at the same directory of your flash1.exe
              put your flash2.exe inside the folder mentioned above.

              in flash1.exe
              fscommand("exec", "flash2.exe"); //to execute flash2.exe

              in flash2.exe
              fscommand("fullscreen", "true"); //to run current flash movie in fullscreen mode
