First create a directory called: fscommand in the root of where your FLA and EXE will be
Dump your pdf's in there.
You will need to create a .bat file to take advantage of the fscommand
In your bat file (which is to be saved in the "fscommand" directory)
type this in your text editor/notepad:
start test.pdf <------ NO QUOTES
save as "test.bat"
in Flash on your button action
PS: haven't figured out the borderless windows yet

filename = "test.pdf";
fscommand ("exec","start\t" + filename);
fscommand ("exec","cmd\t/c\t" + filename);
with the file inside a folder named fscommand, as well as inside the root directory. But it just does not want to work.
I'm also trying to make the end projector file windowless so all that is seen is the interface that I have created.
Is there any way to do either of these two things without having to purchase any more software? I would appreciate any suggestions, and do not mind if the process is a bit challenging.
