Local SWF won't run?

Posted on 2009-02-12

I have an SWF file on my hard drive that was running fine in IE ver 6 on my PC. It displays a sequence of JPGs from the hard drive. I also have the corresponding compiled EXE version of the SWF file which runs fine too.

This morning, when I execute the SWF file, the background loads, but no external JPGs are displayed. However, when I run the corresponding compiled EXE version of the SWF file , it runs fine, showing the external JPGs.

Any idea why the SWF quit working?

    I'd guess it's something to do with having moved the SWF (or everything else) to a new directory. If you post the code/FLA then we could be more definite for you...

    Thanks for the resonse. I did not figure out why, but, the solution was telling XP to revert to a previouse restore point.

    Could well have been down to your environment variables, then.  Whatever - it's fixed, so good work!
