    Question about sending/receiving SWF files

    When I receive SWF files to my PC from my friend's MAC I get a blank screen.

    How should he send them so I can view them?

    Thank you,
    Herman

    there should be no problems in transfering between the two computers, is the flash player up to date? if the swf is in a newer format than the plugin on the computer it wont work.

    You know, someone worked on a file on Mac, and sent to me to see if I could solve a problem, and I remember getting the file in a diff format other than .fla (it was the MAC equivalent, but since I was on a Windows OS, I could not open the file)

    See whether or not they can "save as" Windows based FLA source files and see if you can import that.
