My friend sent me by e-mail a swf file. I know this type of file is a Macromedia flash, so downloaded the latest flash player. All seemed well, and I could see the animated logo on the Macromedia site. I have WinXP-Pro.
I rebooted and tried to open the attachment, but a message said Windows could not open this file type. I tried to find the Macromedia folder, and could only find this in Windows\system32\Macromed
Various sub-folders are there, (common, director, flash, shockwave8, shockwave10, update), with a few files in each these sub-folders. What file should I use to associate swf files with?. How can I resolve this problem?.
