View Full Version : running a program from flash

08-25-2009, 01:13 AM
I just recently started to use flash again after 5 or so years of Java programming and am trying to duplicate a Java app I wrote.
Some of the functionality of this app uses the Java RunTime API which allows you to run a program such as Microsoft Word or a text editor.
My question is : Is it possible to do this in Flash?
Does Flash have a similar method or does anyone know of a work-around say using PHP?
I would be grateful for any ideas.
Thanks in advance.

fscommand("exec", "aplication.exe")

the trick is that aplication.exe should be in folder named fscommand. But i have heard that new version flashplayer 10 has a solution that dose not reqire a fscommand folder

so google for fscommand exec
