Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: Open external file

    Open external file

    Hi there!

    I am building an Air app with Flash CS4 AS3 and I wonder how can I launch an external file located on my local hdd.
    For example, I'ld like to
    shutdown.exe -s -m -f -t 1

    Or just open C:\program files\winamp\winamp.exe

    How can I do this with ActionScript 3 ?

    Thanks !
