Get rid of file / control / view / help bar at top of flash app (How to)

I have a flash application being built for me. When I load it (it is an .exe made in flash)
I can see just below the blue border (with minimize / close) that I now have a row of options
appear.

File / control / view and help. Can you get rid of this so that end users do not see it when they open up a this flash .exe. If you can, how is it done

I use MDM Zinc - www.multidmedia.com

You need access to the original swf to be able to use Zinc, but if you have, you get lots of options of how the final .exe file looks (borders / fullscreen / minimise on or off / close on or off etc.)

If you don't have the original swf file FardaSaz EXE to SWF claims to be able to extract the swf from the exe. I haven't used this app myself as all the swfs I use are ones I make myself. Download it from CNET at http://download.cnet.com/FardaSaz-EXE-to-SWF/3000-6676_4-10554387.html?tag=mncol;5

There is also SWF Studio from Northcode - http://www.northcode.com/ but I haven't used this myself.

Both Northcode and MDM give free trial versions so you can see if they do what you need before you have to pay.

http://www.ehow.com/how_6129897_convert-swf-exe-open-source.html mentions a free option but I haven't tried this one.

Easy way to convert SWF to EXE is open Flash Player executable file drag and drop SWF file and click on File menu - > Create Projector....

Free and nothing needs to download or install

@dgofman - you are right, but that is the problem that nathan1038 has - he already has the projector file but wants to lose the menu bar that appears in a Flash Projector.
