We are trying to incorporate a Flash animation into a chm file created with RoboHelp9. Since RoboHelp9 does not support the shockwave file format, we wanted to create a link from a topic to an html file and call the flash animation from the html file. All this using java script.

Evrything works fine when previewing in Robohelp.
Unfortunately this does not seem to work. In the compiled file, a click on the link does open a browser but the browser cannot find the Flash file.

Has any of you ever tried to do something similar, or do have any suggestions?
