Hello, I am trying to set up a demo for a client. Basically I do not know a lot about Flash.

I wanted to try and have a powerpoint slide that had a page of links that linked to various flash movies. Can I embed links into Powerpoint that when clicked they will display a Flash execuatable??

For example one flash movie would be showing how to edit a user in my app. My flash movies are simply going to be screen recording the capture what I am doing in my web app and saving as a flash file.


Any ideas/help would be great!!

Thanks,
jordan

Yeah You can add links into powerpoint that will open files.  But You can also Just put the flash inside powerpoint instead and it will work just like if you were adding a movie.  Or something like that.
Here are some links to how to do it.

So here are some ways to add flash to powerpoint and it will not add any file size to the presentation.  Cause it just calls up the file stored in the same or different folder.
