Combo Box swf vs. exe woes

Here’s a doozy -
Developing on MX 2004 ap (on a Mac) for CD-ROM distribution (primarily Windows.) The aps purpose is to sift through docs and load images using data sets, XML, a combobox and an image loader. This aspect is loaded as a swf from a parent swf.

Everything works fine on the SWF from the Mac. The .exe file run from a Windows machine runs everything fine except for the combobox which always snaps to the first record after making the selection. I’ve tried a couple variations of lockroot (this.mycombobox.lockroot = true, mycombobox.lockroot=true) with no luck. I’ve also tried loading a swf on a Windows browser instead of the .exe, but had the same result.

Any info on this?
