Probably a trust files issue. An AIR app should not have the same problem.
Thank you I will look into that.
I am very new to this. I guess from builder I can create the AIR app.
But it also occurred to me that I have the SDK and all on my machine and
others don't so I likely need to provide them with some of the files produced in the build.

The AIR package will contain everything it needs to run except the AIR
runtime which it will download.
Sorry to be so uninformed, but I am guessing AIR is yet another seperate application.
I am just using the trial of Builder.
Is there nothing I can produce out of Builder that anyone could run on their machine?
Given they have the latest Flash Player of course.
you can make a AIR desktop app in Flash Builder as well as a web app.
An AIR desktop app is designed to run on a desktop
a web app is designed to run on the web
you can switch a web app to desktop by right clicking on the project and choose convert to desktop.
I tried this and it seems to work.
But a total standalone app is not what I am looking for.
I am producing this for researchers that would then want to add these visualizations
to their presentations and reports.
So the product needs to be able to be embeded into Word docs, Power Point and the like.
My goal is to produce an SWF that reads an external XML file for data to
then visualize on charts.
I have found that if I embed the data in the original mxml file it seems to work fine.
I only am having trouble when I start trying to read external data.
I guess I will resort to hard wiring the data into the SWF but it seems to not be right.
There are security rules in Flash. A Flash SWF loaded from the network
cannot access local files without that users permission, otherwise mean
folks would use Flash ads to steal corporate secrets.
You can have your users grant permission with the Security Settings.
Read the Security WhitePapers on the Adobe site and see which configuration
best suits your needs.
Thank you. A friend had mentioned that to me the other day as a possibility.
Well that is problematic for my purposes.
So I will simply hardwire the data I am visualizing into the application.
I understand but I had really hoped to be able to work with dynamic data sources.
Perhaps Flash/Flex is not the best way to visualize that type of data then.
For my current purposes hardwired data will work.
Thank you for your help.
