    Security Sandbox Violation and Debug

    salimzayat

      Hey there.  I am running into an annoying problem with Flash, particularly when I run my program in Debug.  Basically I have an AS3 project at some location on my computer (c:/.../Flash/Project/project.fla) with a main script for it (c:/.../Flash/Project/code/projectMain.as).  If I try to load in SWF files or JPG files from other places on my computer, I get problems.  For example if I try to load files like:

       

      c:/.../Flash/Shared/sharedItem.swf

      c:/.../Flash/Project/Items/specificItem.swf

      ...

       

      It seems to load them fine.  When I click on the movie though, I get this in the output:

       

      *** Security Sandbox Violation ***
      SecurityDomain 'file:///C/.../file.swf' tried to access incompatible context 'file:///C/.../project.swf

       

      And the whole thing stops working. I have read about the security sandbox and allowDomain calls and all that, but I don't see how the domains are different.  I am not deploying this to any server or anything, just trying to run the debug swf.  I have access to local files by default, right?

       

      Anyway, any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.
