    invoking .exe using action script

    nandeshnair
      hi
      I want to invoke a .exe file using flex3. I also need to pass command line arguments to the invoked .exe file.
      Is this possible. Please reply. An example would be sufficient.

      Thanks!!!

          A Flex app running under the Flash Player hosted in a browser is forbidden by security constraints from accessing any local client assets, including the file system, ports, programs, etc.

          The same app running under AIR is permitted to access local assets, but last I heard, it still did not directly support running native programs. I have heard of some work arounds. Google for that.
