View Full Version : Need to loading .exe

05-23-2005, 05:58 PM
Hiya people!

Having a bit of trouble here.

I'm trying to load 1 projected Flash file from another.

Its basically a promotional CD ROM and from this main presentation, I would like to load a 2nd projected Flash file (.exe).

The trigger for this to load is just a simple button.

Can anybody please help me out with this?

Really need your help!

You're not expecting to have 2 projectors on top of each other are you?
You can only have one projector up on the screen at once.

If you load another .exe it will simply replace the one in the player on screen.
You would do it with fscommand and "exec"...
You need your second .exe to be in a direct subfolder (named "fscommand") of the folder in which lies your first .exe...

I wasn't looking to load one exe inside another.

I was looking to open up a second one (in a seperate window) from the original.

Is this not possible?

Not that I know of!

Can it be done loading .swf's instead of .exe's?

It would still load within the first projector, unless maybe using a getURL to open up a browser window with another external.swf embedded into the html...

I was looking to open up a second one (in a seperate window) from the original.You can call .exe's located in the fscommand folder in your projector directory. Lookup fscommand("exec", "myexe.exe"); in the livedoc's...

Thing is he want's 2 projectors on screen at the same time... And to my knowledge, that won't be happening. The second when called will replace the first one!

I know this post is late but yes you can have two projectors open. Once you call the fscommand("exec", "myfile.exe") it opens in a new projector. Your essentially telling the projector to "execute" another application and both will be running at the same time.

I would suggest not running the first projector fullscreen because once you launch the second, if you click on to the first you switch focus, unless of course the second is fullscreen as well, what I am trying to say is....if the main projector is going to be fullscreen, the .exe's you call from there after should be fullscreen too. Less hassle for the end user!
