    a little confused...


    You're going to have to give a little more detail.
    I'm doing a cd menu for a CD, I have a button that links to a zip file but when i action it nothing happens
    For example, what specifically do you mean when you say "link" and "action"? Perhaps you could provide a sample of the actionscript you used. Also, explaining what kind of menu you are creating may help to clarify what you are trying to do.

    Thanks,

    We'll in my CD menu I have a download button, that says "download" the button links to a .zip file that should display in a window or offer to the use to download on to the desktop, like what would happen if it was a web page.

    hope this helps

    I think if you want to open this file up in a new window you use the following:

    Code:
    getUrl("javascript:window.open('/file.zip')");
    The only problem is when you use it, I think it opens an empty, full-size browser window and then gives you the download dialog. You should try experimenting to see what results you can get.

    Hopefully, someone else will have a better method.
