ActiveX controls like Adobe(Macromedia) Flash doesn't support pluggable protocols,
so it will not work after compilation. But you can show flash movies as external files.

you mention showing flash movies as external files but can you be more specific.

I am trying to include a flash banner that I have made in my compilation, It will show the .swf file in my project only if its embed from an external website, but I can not get it to display the swf banner when viewing offline. I have included the swf file alongside the .exe in the same folder, and altered the code in the webpage to find it in images/file.swf. i have added *.swf within Direct Execution but the swf file will still not show in my project unless the user is viewing it from an external source but for this they need to be online which is what i am trying to avoid.

Many thanks

In some cases, browser will load Flash ActiveX control from Adobe(Macromedia) site.

This is not really the answer I am after

Can you please be more specific, Im grateful for you replying to my post but your answer does not help me as it is too vague.

I need to be aple to see the flash without having to be online.

can you further explain how I am able to do this using your program? You say about storing the .swf file in root file or within the subfolder, but it still wont work. either im missing your point or the program does not support this.

First of all, please check your browser's security settings. By default, IE will block all active content from local hard drive.

still having problems

Im still having the same problem even though I have adjusted my IE settings to allow active content.
What I have noticed is that its looking for the file putting http://website at the front like below example :

http://website/(myfile).swf

why is adding http://website/ before my file ??? im sure this is what is stopping it from linking to the file.

please advise if I am overlooking something.. hope you can help sort out the problem, as I say the program is great it does everything I want apart from show my .swf file offline which is fairly important.

Thanks
