 How can put a Flash SWF or a Flash Projector file on a memory stick, flash drive or usb flash drive and automatically auto launch the flash file when inserted into the flash drive ?

 I am using Jugglor to create a presentation on a CD. It's an auto-run flash projector file (.exe), but the file is really big. it takes a long time to load, and my client wants a "loading" screen. Would Jugglor give me the ability to have a "loading" screen come up while the rest of the exe was loading in the background.

 Is there a way to clear the cache for the player... or load the entire site and it's contents into the player's memory. If I test it from my local drive, it works fine... On a CD-ROM, the entire site gets stuck and it chugs along incredibly slow. The CD-ROM is composed of multiple SWFs constantly being loaded and unloaded. On a CD-ROM, for the PC, is the stand-alone player losing memory or something?

 I had to do a flash presentation that will be put on a CD-ROM and sent to clients. I've used Jugglor to 'Juggle' and customise the orginal flash projector file. How do I make the flash presentation play automatically from a CD?

 How do you execute a flash projector file when inserting a CD ?

 How do I build a hybrid CD for both Mac users and PC users?

 I'm looking for a tool or some way to save files to disk from inside Flash. I want to save dxf files straight from a CD on to the hard drive. Do any of your tools do this?

 I want my main application to be on the end user's machine, but I want the rest of the media to be on the CD-ROM. How can I have access to these from my Juggled file ?

First of all we recommend you convert or publish the flash file as a Projector file, so it has the Flash Player built in, as many end user's PCs will not recognise a SWF file.

Then create a plain text file called 'autorun.inf' containing the following:

[autorun]
open=project.exe

You can do this in Notepad.

Then you write this file to the CD on the same level as the .exe file.

For more information on this please go to

Try using the feature that is built into Jugglor already.

Simple.

Yes, this is because you are running the flash file from the CD-ROM. There are memory issues when running projector files from a CD-ROM which Adobe have acknowledged (see technotes on the website for further info), so animation and sound will not play too well.

See:

http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=tn_16591&sliceId=2

We suggest you use Jugglor to 'Juggle' the flash projector file and add the additional swf files in the 'Additional Files' section in Jugglor.

You can also take advantage of Jugglor's other cool features, edit/remove right click/change icon, menu bars etc.

Once you press "Build it" it packs and COMPRESSES (sometimes the Juggled file is smaller than the original) all the files into one EXE i.e Juggled file.

Well now when you run the Juggled file, the original projector and all other file included will uncompress onto the users hard drive i.e Windows/Temp directory.

This will now give you the smooth playback you originally had.

Please download an evaluation copy and try it for yourself and see the difference in speed.

Remember if you are using the LOADMOVIE command and you want to access files outside of the Flash Projector file then you will need replace it with a new LOADMOVIE command using the LOCAL%.

See the

Jugglor Help -> Advanced Techniques -> Using LOCAL%

There you will find an example file also.

Good Luck

Dot 1 How do you execute a flash projector file when inserting a CD ? Top
Say your Flash projector is called 'project.exe', you would create a plain text file called 'autorun.inf' containing the following:

[autorun]
open=project.exe

You can do this in Notepad.

Then you write this file to the CD on the same level as the .exe file.

It can be bypassed by the user if they hold down the shift key after inserting the CD.

This is for Windows. If you want to do the same for Macs, you'll need to look at the documentation that comes with Toast.

We recommend you use an installation tool to transfer files across to your user's machine

Take a look at

We've just added a CDROM% command that supports this.

Please read the

Jugglor Help -> Advanced Techiques -> Using CDROM% command

Also look at the example file provided.
