Interactive Flash Desktop


I started playing around with Active Desktop, having a flash animation as wallpaper, all interactivity within the movie works (animation, sound etc).

I was thinking it would be really really cool to build myself a nice little flash interface I can use to open programs etc from the desktop, but after hours of searching found that as fscommand will only work with .exe and not .swf, there’s no way of opening external applications through .swf :confused:

I’m just asking if anyone has ever tried anything like this before? And if there may actually be a way of opening applications such as notepad from a .swf ? :S

Thanks a lot guys
