Calling a DUN-connection window from Flash Projector
Posted on 2004-11-11
I'm trying to call a dial-up conecction from inside a Flash projector, so people are able to connect to the internet and submit the info generated.
Previously I managed to do this by "faking" an executable by doing this:
-The cd with the proyector had an autorun so a splash window poped-up
-As the splash screen closed it called an instance of IE and I loaded every swf just as a webpage...
-People would navigate the page and suddenly when they wanted to submit their comments i called a webpage on the internet sending all of the data, this would lead into 2 different scenarios:
1)The user was already connected, so the webpage received the info and thanked the user.
2)The user was not connected, and IE would automatically bring up the DUN connection window, the user decided whether to connect or not and send in the info
This time I decided to keep it IE-independent (because of pop-up blockers and overall image of the project) but I lost the aforementioned feature (that seemed very useful to many users)
Does anyone knows if any of those "swf2exe" applications in the market can do this?
Alternativelly. Is there any way to make the projector call OS commands to star up the DUN-connection window? (if yes... Do you know where can I find the command to call?)
