"Only Netscape 3.0 and above offers cross-platform support for FS Commands." --Flash Bible

I worked with a standalone application built in Flash targeted for the Macintosh and found out the hard way that it often simply won't work.  My application used it in a simple manner--used the FS Command to open another swf in the same directory.  Didn't work (and LoadMovie wasn't an option here).

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
