Are you wondering whether Flash is the right technology to use? Are you intending to make an application that the end user is using to manipulate their local files?

JSFL is used to automate Flash development - it is not something that's part of the Flash player.

SWFs are normally sandboxed in browsers. Therefore, if you are using Flash in this project, you are going to need to use something else to do the local file manipulation.

There are some off-the-shelf third-party extensions to do this that you can use if you are keen to develop in Flash. you can find plenty by googling.

What you won't then be delivering to your users is an swf; instead you will have to distribute an exe.

Without using 3rd Party software, is it possible to manipulate local files even if I give my end users an exported exe? I am able to manipulate the local files if I am running in the IDE (created a panel, that movie called some jsfl stuff), but I am unable to do the same operations if I run the .swf file, or an exported .exe file.

Is this correct: JSFL will not allow you to manipulate local files if you are not running the movie inside the IDE.

That's the root of my questions.

Thanks for your help and patience,

That's right. JSFL is only there to allow you to automate Flash development.
