Why does it play (by default) after publishing to exe

After publishing my frames to exe, it plays my frames by default as a movie even though I have buttons in each frame.

Because I am designing a presentation project (slides). I don't want to start playing my frames (one after the other) when I run my exe file. I want it to display the first frame and wait until I hit the Next/Prev buttons .
Right now when I run the exe file, it start playing all frame until I untick the play under control. Is there a way to disable the play ?
Please help. Thanks

PS: My buttons are working when I untick play.

1///
I was able to set the action to the first frame to stop and it worked. But is it enough to set only the first frame to stop?

2///
In eac frame I have 2 buttons 'Next' and 'Pervious'. The next button is working and the action is goto next frame and this working fine in all frames.
The previous button is go to previous frame but it is not working. If you hit the 'Previous' button in every frame it takes you to the first frame even though, all the 'Previous' buttons actions are set to go to the previous frame.

Thanks alot

Here:

At each frame that you want to display until a button is pressed, place a stop action. Or just use Go To and Stop.

On the next and previous buttons, right-click it and go to Instance Properties and set its actions there.

Go To Next and Previous Frame is never as reliable as it should be, so I suggest simply hard-coding the frame number in there.

For example:

You have a presentation that is 10 frames long.

The first three frames you want to display until a Next or Previous button is clicked, so in frame 1, make the action go to frame 2. In frame 2, make the next action go to 3. Frames 1-3 should have Go To and Stop (next frame #) action in it.

Frames 4-9 make up a simple animation. At Frame 9, you want the movie to stop and wait for a Next or Previous click. So in frame 3, you place a Go To and Play (4). And at 9, you place a Stop action.

See what I mean?
Please explain in further detail if you need more assistance.

always glad to help,

Thanks for the reply.
I have already used frame number and then frame label but they didn't work.

For Next button:
it is working eventhough I am using next frame option.

For Previous:
I have tried :
-frame number
-frame label
-and previous frame option

but it still take me to the first frame from all frames.
What's the problem you think ?

Thanks
