Happy new year!!
I have a very quick questions about shared objects, are they created only when used with a browser? as the project I'm working is going to be redesigned into a projector file will shared objects still be created and set?

thanks for your help

shared object is for the client system and works no matter where the flash file comes from be it from a webserver or from a cdrom or from the hard disk
check it out at livedocs.macromedia.com

maybe you can help me some more??

I have a shared object that doesn't want to share I am hitting a brick wall and am not sure why?

For a test I am using two files one with a movieclip loader and one with nothing but a trace statement code is as follows.

Movie 1 (sandwiche_base.fla)
var lsoUser:SharedObject = SharedObject.getLocal("userdata", "/");
lsoUser.data.userid = 100;
lsoUser.data.sandwiches = "pickle";
// <!-- MovieClipLoader Object --> \\
var myMCL:MovieClipLoader = new MovieClipLoader();
var myListener:Object = new Object();
myMCL.loadClip("sandwichSelector.swf", 10);
// <!-- MovieClipLoader Object --> \\

Movie 2 (sandwichSelector.fla)

The strange thing is the statement traces the value on the sandwich_base movie but not on the sandwichselector movie, I was thinking that shared objects are global in scope.
