yes. you can. I have used this to replace icons on my exe projectors, and I believe it can disable the menu too.

This may not be an option, but importing your swf into Macromedia Director then publishing your exe will give you greater control.

Hi,

j3one is correct if you are creating an executable file, only then its possible. It s otherwsie impossible to do it in a SWF player. You can crack into flash.ocx but it will affect only the machine you creacked it in and will not affect other machines.

If you need any more help or have questions on it , please ask.

Thanks,
KP

an easier way is to stick this code somewhere BEFORE the <BODY> tag.. if you are using COLDFUSION, stick it in a template which can be be called using <CFINCLUDE> when you want right click disabling.

<script language=JavaScript>
<!--

//Disable right mouse click Script

///////////////////////////////////
function clickIE4(){
if (event.button==2){
return false;
}
}

function clickNS4(e){
if (document.layers||document.getElementById&&!document.all){
if (e.which==2||e.which==3){
return false;
}
}
}

if (document.layers){
document.captureEvents(Event.MOUSEDOWN);
document.onmousedown=clickNS4;
}
else if (document.all&&!document.getElementById){
document.onmousedown=clickIE4;
}

document.oncontextmenu=new Function("return false")

// -->
</script>

you can partially turn off right-click using html

it will give the same result as using..

fscommand("showmenu","false"); //in an projector swf

insert this before the embed tag..

<PARAM NAME=menu VALUE=false>
