File access

I’ve written a SWF in FlashDevelop (using the open Flex stuff) and use it to load up a bunch of image files.

public function funcA(file:String):void {
    var m_Ldr:Loader = new Loader();
    m_Ldr.load(new URLRequst(file));
    m_Ldr.contentLoaderInfo.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, funcB);

public function funcB(evt:Event):void {
    m_Bitmap = Bitmap(m_Ldr.content);

Now, this works fine in the debugger environment with, say, funcA(“test1.jpg”), but when I try and copy the files into another directory, I get security errors, something about it not being ‘Local with trusted’ or some such.

I assume local file access is possible via Flash if the SWF is on the harddrive too, right? I did try adding a Security.allowDomain("*"); to see if that made a difference, but seems not.

If local file access isn’t possible, do I have to find a server to copy everything onto even for just testing stuff?
