Unhappy i'm trying to load and external swf file or exe file

i'm trying to open a second flash movie that is indepentent of the original.
when i click on the button on the original flash movie. i would like to have a second flash movie open up like a popup so they can view that movie and when they are do the can close the second flash file and and the original is still there. is there a way to do that... so, far all i've beeen able to do is load a movie into itself.. where i need it to open independent of the fist movie.

Hi Phatka,

This is simple. create a Movie Clip in different layer. Give a instance name to mivie clip. open external file inside the movie clip.

If you want more on this just mail me i will give a example to that.


take care

You can't have 2 Flash standalone players on the screen at the same time... You'll need to open a browser window with another embedded Flash movie in it.
