    flash text-load works locally, not on server?

    I downloaded a Flash template that loads content from text files in /txt/ folder. It works fine when I am viewing the webpage on my local machine, but not when over a network or when uploaded to my server.

    For example, I tried to view my webpage from another computer on my network - the flash showed up but the content areas were blank. The ssame thing happens when I upload the files to my web host - but everything shows up fine on my local comp.

    I played around the text file permission on my server but that did not help... any ideas?

    the flash file is locked so I cannot open it to view it. I am pretty sure that the flash file looks for the relative directory of ./txt/ which works fine when the file is stored locally. Yet when I access the file from a network or intetnet connection, the text will not show up.

    One curious thing, is that the text for the navigation and the title works fine - it's just the content text files that don't work.

    Here is my test:

    yes i am having the same problem with my flash file. I have a html file that loads the flash movie and the flash movie gets dynamic header text loaded from the html file. when I have the html file and the flash file in the same directory locally, it works but when I call the flash file from the server, it loads the flash and graphic but the text do not show up. If you found a solution, please post it. thanks.
