    Downloading more than one file in a single HTTP response requires a
    client side application in order to split up the response.

    Default Downloading a File

    Hi, I'm using Director MX and making an interactive CD. How do make a link that downloads a file off the CD to the users hardrive? If you could give me a step by step process I would appreciate it because I'm not real good at Lingo and I'm just a beginner on Director. Thanks for you help!

    Hi,

    You can use a third party Xtra such as BuddyAPI to save files from the CD to
    the user's harddrive. BuddyAPI's baCopyFile command can achieve this
    function.
    ex. OK = baCopyFile("d:\data\student.txt" , "c:\data\backup\student.dat" ,
    "IfNewer" )
    You can download the Xtra at [url]http://www.buddyapi.com[/url]

    Regards,
    Gren Foronda
