Security.allowDomain and crossdomain.xml

I have a Flash application that loads images. It loads them from an external source. These external images are .swf files. The application is located at root ( while the .swf images are located in a subdirectory ([URL=“”]

I get a security sandbox violation when my application attempts to load the external images. It says in the error message that I can get around this by using Security.allowDomain. I tried this but it didn’t work. I put the line “Security.allowDomain(‘’)” in each external image .swf file. It still wouldn’t load the external images.

What can I do to allow my application to load external .swf files that are located in a subdirectory? Do I need to work with crossdomain.xml or is this irrelevant?

Any help would be appreciated.
