Cannot Insert Flash EXE Files

Question: I am looking for help inserting a Flash movie into my PowerPoint slide. My client sent me a movie with an EXE file extention and I have followed your directions correctly but I can not get it to play. Is there any way you can help me with this or point me in the right direction?

Answer: You need to ask your client to send you a SWF file — SWF files are actual Flash animation movies — the EXE file you received is most probably a Flash Projector file that includes the Flash runtime to run the movie and is essentially used for CD distribution. The original creator of the Flash movie can most certainly create a SWF output and send it to you so that you can insert it within a PowerPoint slide.
