I'm a very inexperienced flash developer with a problem! I have a flash movie that I've made, and I would like it to call both external .html pages, an external .exe file and another flash movie from the main movie when buttons are pressed.
If I embed my main movie in a webpage and use getURL I can open the new .html pages, but have no clue how to open the external .exe file (a small program). I have not tried to open the other movie yet.
If I make my movie into an .exe and try to open the .html pages, crazy stuff happens like recursive blank Explorer windows opening. And I still have no idea how to launch the .exe or second movie.
Ideally I would like both movies to be .exe files. Then the main file could be launched by double-clicking it, and the .html pages opened in the user's browser when buttons are clicked in the movie. The external program .exe could also be launched from the main movie, as could the second flash movie.
If anyone can help me with the functions used to do these things it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks very much for the help, and sorry if these questions are lame. ;)
