X-platform Flash CD Rom question
on Mar 20, 2009 at 5:07:42 pm

I'm building a cross platform CD ROM that's basically an asset library, where the user simply clicks on a link to download a file from the CD. There are about 300 files in total.
I was going to use SWF Studio to do this in an elegant way, but then I learned it was cross platform so that idea is right out the window. Zinc 3.0 also isn't an option in this case (purchasing it isn't in the budget)
So, here's my question:
I'm using "get url" to get the file the user wants, and in doing so, it opens a browser as a helper to enable the user to save the file. This works fine on a PC, but on the MAC, it will actually open the file in a browser, such as if there's a PSD. The user then has to use "save as" from the browser to save the file.
Is there any other way to do this in order to prevent the files from opening in the browser?
I really just want to be able to invoke a "save as" dialog to prompt the user if they want to save the file to their desktop.
Any thoughts?
