You can use MDM zinc which is a 3rd party packager, it will also give you access to chromeless transparency (very cool) and a pile of OS features, like taskbar icons, registery acccess etc.

The other option is to package your app as an air application like AOL Top 100.

Flex Junky 7 years and counting
