Thanks for the reply. i got around it by loading it in instead of embedding it i dont no why it never embeded but it is working now
on another side note when i embed i do [Embed(source = "/../img/Havana.swf")]
So i am therefore goin back a directory and looking in an img folder. obviously i dont want this to happen as i want it to be [Embed(source = "img/Havana.swf")] so it looks in the current directory it is is. But when i do this it just does not find the files to embed (even though the files and folder is there. Any thoughts?
