EmergencyFlashFilter: Opening a .PDF from a Flash file.
posted by dirtynumbangelboy to computers & internet (4 answers total)
We need to open a *.PDF file from a Flash presentation. The presentation is on a CD, walks through various aspects of a product, invites the viewer to click [x] to open the pdf, which is on the same CD, in the same folder.
Apparently it's impossible to directly open a pdf from a flash movie. The kludge we tried was having the link call an HTML document, which had the pdf embedded. This works on only one computer, and we can't figure out why.
These CD's need to be done by noon EST tomorrow, which means burning starts latest 9am EST tomorrow. Help us, please! Any and all ideas will be entertained at this point.
