View where a flash movie links to? Very important that I find out

Ok, I have client whose webpage is not fully functioning.  I have figured out what I think is going.  There is a small html file that loads a flash movie, we will call it flashmain.  Now when that movie loads off to the side another flash movie loads that is not referenced anywhere in the html.  I can only assume that the flash file itself is causing that second flash movie to load.  Now if I run this html file from my desktop everything works fine, but it does not work from the webhost.  Unfortunatly our webhost is case sensitve and I think that may have something to do with it, so I need to see the exact file that the first flash file is linking to.  The web developer is no longer in the picture, and that is why I am having to figure this out.  So my question is there anyway from the .swf file that I can see what other .swf files it loads?  Thank you very much.

Hi
well you can use one of the flash decomplier programs as these kind of programs try to convert the swf back to FLA so you can know the exact file name it loads..

also you can try different combinations of the second file name , for example if it was second.swf
then try :
Second.swf
SECOND.swf
second.swf

I don't think it would get out of these names..

best regards,
Ramy

Yeah I tried that, none of them worked.  I just know it has to be an issue with case though, I mean what else could it be, the files work fine locally, they work fine on my own personal web server which is just a windows server, they just do not work on my clients web server.

Would you be able to go more in depth about converting the file back to FLA so I can see what it is linked to?

Hi
there are some programs that could get all the action script form the swf
this prog for ex.

http://www.eltima.com/products/flashdecompiler/

in its features it says :

Extract sounds, images, videos, shapes, frames, morphs, fonts, texts, buttons, sprites and ActionScripts with a single click

so if u use it u can get al lthe action script form your swf and look for sometihng like loadMovie and you then will know what is the name of the movie clip to load ..

Regards,
Ramy

Thank you so much, that did the trick, the demo version did all I need.  The directory the flash files are in was capitalized in the flash movie scripts.  So I just copied the directory to the web host again capitalized and it is good to go.
