            This code opens a PDF that is on the web in a new browser window:


            <?xml version="1.0"?>
            <mx:Application xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml">
                private function showPDF():void{
                  navigateToURL(new URLRequest('http://help.adobe.com/en_US/flex/using/flex_4_help.pdf'));
              <mx:Button label="Show PDF" click="showPDF();"/>


            But in general, Flex apps can't access the hard drive as they are web apps.


            If you are creating an AIR app they can.


            If this post answers your question or helps, please mark it as such. Thanks!
