Here is how to do it.
example: you have a map with your flash and another map called "mapname" and there is a file named "filename.extension".
The you want to get the filename.extension from your flash. You use the GetUrl command from flash and you start with the mapname then a "slash" ( forward or backward find it out ) the the filename.extension
like this: geturl(mapname/filename.extension
or as another example: geturl(flash/tutorial.zip)
so don't start with a "slash" ( / )
by the wat are you using windows ? Because I do and I don't know if it works on the mac or another platform, but I do think so.
getURL(path) should work.
geturl must have adouble slash:

Oh is that new in flash 5 ?
I mostly us flash 4 which the double slash isn't needed.
