Default bypassing fscommand exec?

I've got a serious problem here. I want to start up several projectors from a main projector. In the Flash 6 player, the security has been tightened. One has to put applications you want to start up in a folder called 'fscommand'. That's OK, but I have several projectors (with different names) that all use their own folder called 'data'. So I can't put them in the same folder 'fscommand'. I have to make subfolders but the security of Flash 6 doesn't allow to set a path to subfolders... I've tried a few workarounds:
- create a 'launcher' which loads into level0 the external swf form the subfolder... this is not good, because my vars in the loaded swf get messed up.
- getUrl, calling the projector. It starts up the browser first and that's not good
- creating launchers with applescript (for mac) and using bat-files (windows): in applescript I only seem the be able to create absolute paths an not relative paths, which is annoying because testing becomes very clumsy. And I haven't even trieds to create a batfile (does it work on XP anyway?)
- I dont have director
- Use the Flash 5 player, but than Mac OS X users have to run the projector in Classic (or am I wrong? (I hope..))
Are there any other solutions or is there a way to alter the flash 6 player?

Many thanks in advance
