I have a created a navigation swf file with MC buttons that link to all my main html pages. When I test the swf from Flash they lauch a browser and the page comes up. However, when I place the swf inside Dreamweaver and preview the page the MC buttons will not navigate to the page it is supposed to link to. However, once I publish the page to the outside server and I go to the web to see it the pages link correctly. The time involved to do this is seriously cramping my patience for simple edits and my workflow. Can anyone help me with why this is happening? Is this a Flash issue or a Dreaweaver issue?
Its a Flash thing. Flash's network calls are not reliable when used locally. You will need to run the files from a server.
