Hi there,

I'm trying to get a pre-written flash ticker script to work in windows projector (.exe) format. The ticker loads data from a text file. When the text file is located in the same directory as the .exe file it works fine. However, if I try to get it to load the variables from a URL nothing happend (even though I've got a permanent connection). See below:

Load Variables "http://216.147.19.207/jmc/ticker_data.txt", 0)

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Mat

Not sure, I use Flash 5 and it works perfectly for me:

loadVariablesNum ("http://www.actionscripts.org/text.txt", 0);

wors no probs.

Cheers
