I have created a press kit in Flash Catalyst which contains an mp3 player in the form of a SWF file. When I publish the Catalyst project (run-Locally and deploy-to-web) the mp3 player operates perfectly. When I open the Main.swf in Flash Player it operates perfectly. When I create a projector file (from Flash Player) the external swf (the mp3 player) is missing.
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
Flash Catalyst does not embed the .swf file, so it will need to be present along with your projector file in order to work properly.
Try dropping the projector file into the run-local copy and see if it works there. If it does, make sure that you copy the assets folder to wherever you place the final projector file.
Excellent! Thanks so much Bear - that worked like a charm. I was just sitting down to redo the whole project in Flash when your answer came through.
I will probably still do that at a later date so all the asset files can be located within the projector file - but this is a great work around for the short run I need this week.
Again - thanks for help!
