I am writting an interface for a documetation/training cd. I need to know how to launch executables from flash. I am familiar with the FS exec command but it will only lauch with a full path reference. This will not work because I cannot reference the drive letter in the path. Any help would be appreciated. My project deadline is December 20th 2000.

I am currently writing a tutorial on this although it assumes you know the path :(

I'll look into doing it without paths but for the moment that best I can do is direct you to this tutorial:

(opening files using their default viewer).

Cheers
