    I've been using this application called Zinc from MDM Media for creating autorun Flash apps.

    It allows you to convert a SWF to EXE (like a projector), but also adds some really sweet additional functionality by accessing the MDM API, which is essentially an extension of Java's Windows (and OSX) APIs. This allows you to control the file system, databases, devices, etc, all from a Flash application. It also allows you to launch other applications from Flash, create modal dialogs, etc.

    In short, Zinc turns Flash into a Windows and/or OSX application.

    And even better, it allows your Flash app to run chromeless (transparent), so you can create your own interface.

    I just finished my first Zinc app, and it's SCHWEEEEEET. Loving this product!!!
