About local file security and Flash Player

Flash Player 8 has made enhancements to the security model, in which Flash applications and SWF files on a local computer are not allowed to communicate with both the Internet and the local file system by default. A local SWF file is a SWF file that is locally installed on a user’s computer, not served from a website, and does not include projector (EXE) files.

Note

The restrictions that are discussed in this section do not affect SWF files that are on the Internet.
