Popup page in standalone swf (no parent html page)

I am having a similar problem as david68 http://www.kirupa.com/forum/showthread.php?t=94818&highlight=popup+swf

I have created a standalone swf (my swf files are NOT contained within html). When a button is clicked I would like to open a popup html page with specific dimensions. There is surely a way to do this, right? By specifying the size in the HTML document using JavaScript or CSS…or possibly using some sort of script in getURL?

I tried using JavaScript in getURL in Flash…like this somewhat…

getURL(“javascript:window.open(‘URL’, ‘win_name’, ‘width=580,height=400,left=100,top=100’);”);

But like david68, a blank white page opens and closes itself in the speed of a blinking eye.

Any ideas? Please help! Thanks.
