standalone CD with embedded flashHi
I've been browsing this forum for a while now and found some posts with similar problems/questions as mine, however, no real solution was provided. This is why I am repeating this in a bundle + adding my own issues.
One tour was too big (problems with loading) so I split it into several smaller parts - tours. Furthermore, when running from a CD, on some machines Internet Explorer warns the user before opening the tour from a CD (security settings). Eventually, most people click yes, and the tour loads, but this is not something you want to have if you give away promo CDs.
I was thinking about embedding Flash and/or browser (Mozilla), so that everything you need is on the CD and starts from the CD (I want this CD to be independent from the user's OS and their local settings). I also want to interlink (crosslink?) all tours so they appear as one tour and so that enduser can switch between the tours without the need of a separate menu page and/or a new popup window. I.e., within tour 1 there is a link to tour 2, which opens in the same window, preferably with a smooth transition between the tours.
Has anyone ever tried this? Does it work? How to approach the problem?
Thank you for your help.
