    Default baOpenFile, Bundles, and OS9

    I'm creating a Mac/PC hybrid CD in which the Mac portion is also OSX/OS9
    compatible. I used the techinque described in this technote
    [url]http://www.macromedia.com/support/director/ts/doents/bundle_proj.htm[/url] .

    Everything works fine except for 1 thing. I am opening a pdf file with
    buddy api. baOpenFile works fine on the PC, and on OSX....but not on OS9.
    It makes a call to acrobat but can't seem to open the pdf that is in the
    bundle. It gives me an error basically saying that acrobat can't open the
    file. I can unbundle the file and open it in acrobat...but not while it's
    bundled up. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    -Mike

    Pls check the path you are given.

    PC and OS X "\" will work but for os 9 you have to use ":"

    pls check this

    Did this change in Director MX2K4? Because in Director MX the ":" was still
    used as the path delimiter for Mac OS X (even though the OS itself uses a
    forward slash...not a back slash).
