I am trying to disptacthEvent from a Flash8 app to the Flex application that is pulling in the Flash8 swf.  

I have no idea if this is even possible.  I think maybe an issue might be with Flash8 being AS2 and Flex being AS3?

Thanks for any assistance.

It is possible, but not with events. You need to use a LocalConnection
