This is driving me CRAZY: I am making a CD-based Flash product. I want to link to and open various documents - e.g. Word, PDF... - that are in a subdirectory on the CD. I want the documents to open in their native formats, NOT IN A BROWSER.

What is the code?? Why isn't this a simple hypertext line?

Thanks!!!

What is the code?? Why isn't this a simple hypertext line?You can't do it because Flash only knows how to open links and the browser handles all the rest.

If you want to do something on the local file system then you have to use the EXEC fscommand. I created a FREE tool called PROXY (http://www.northcode.com/blog.php/2007/08/07/Conquering-FSCommand-EXEC-Part-1-Proxy) to help you do stuff like this.
