Hello,
I'm making a standalone player for distribution on floppy disk.  At the end of the movie, I want to have the option "email this movie to a friend".  Is that possible?  Can I force an attachment (A:/movie.exe) to a mailto: type statement?
thanks alot!

no. it's not possible from a standalone player.

if it was on the web, you can create an asp (or similar) page that uses Jmail (or similar asp component). It will be like using a mailto form from flash. Jmail and ASPMail have attachment capability. You also need to know the exact path to the executable (ie attachment).

Perhaps the "email to friend" button can link to a URL (user must be connected - but if they've just received this attachement, chances are they will be). You can do the above from this URL.
