thanks. tried it. Didn't work. I would not want it to either - it would wreak havoc with the Flash publishing scheme. ie: you create and edit source content in the native .FLA format. Then select a number fomrats to export under: HTML, SWF, JPG, QUICKTIME etc. Edit the default templates and prefs for each iof these media, then issue a single 'Publish' command and simultaneous versions are rendered. This is grest for workflow becuae you stay inside the authoring tool [Flash5] and just keep banging the hot keys CTRL+S: SAVE and SHIFT+F12: PUBLISH to test and improve the project. Ironically, I can easily do what IU want in the other direction: launch rebol from a standalone Flash5 excutable. Thre are also some excellent 3rd party add-ons increasing the feature set. Best of them for Win32 appears to be SWFStudio: $139 Now looking into this as a viable way to install and launch rebol from seamless Flash interface. Both the platforms are very small, and minimally may even fit on a single floppy together. - Jason
