    My CD presentation made in Swish (Its like Flash) & WinXP is giving me a little problem, and I cant get the file download to work properly. I have 3 different file formats for the viewer to choose & download. If I use the gotoURL command, it immediately sets off the Windows default pop up window "Possible harmful file...etc" which looks bad. I've read you can use a batch file & FS commands to launch 3rd party apps in Swish & avoid the windows default pop-up window.

    So I tried that & liked 99% of it, it launches the app perfectly, but a little DOS pop up window pops up for about 10 secs stating d:\>Start filename.doc, & then it disappears. I think this looks unprofessional. Ive tried opening the batch file in Win XP & altering batch file: close on exit/ minimize but it dosent seem to work. I set up a very simple mock up of my example with a fake word doc file, could someone plase take a look & tell me if they can get it to work without the DOS window. My file is for download at:

    If none of this can work does anyone know if I can use Javascript in my Swish CD to launch apps, and how i would do it.

    Thank you for your time

    I think if you do "echo off" it makes the batch file execute invisibly
