I assume you're doing this from a flash projector file, you can't do it from a regular swf.
Its been a while since I made a flash projector, but I'm pretty sure that you can only launch executables that are in a fscommand subdirectory of the same directory that holds the projector file.
it is all in the same directory and folder. I'm trying to launch an exe from a folder within the fscommand folder. The file is not at the top level of the fscommand folder, rather nested in a folder within fscommand. Does that make more sense ?

Oh I understand. Well I haven't tried doing projector related work for some time, but this seems to be discouraging:
Keep in mind Also your .exe and .bat files that you are launching (ie. Director, VB,
other Flash .exe projects) MUST be in the root directory of a folder called “fscommand” sitting
right next to your main interface.exe. No subdirectories can be used, which makes life difficult
from an organization standpoint
If that's correct then you can only use the fscommand directory itself and not subdirectories within it.
I was afraid of that. The Adobe site i was looking at was for MX and the CS3 site gave no mention of this. Adobe really seems to have killed the fscommand feature. Well i guess im stuck making messy folders. Thanks for the input.
you're welcome. Sorry it wasn't great news.
