Many people have asked how they can manage how they can watch their SWFs in the player of their choice for testing. Many are also interested creating projectors in older versions of Flash so they can use older techniques not possible in the new projector.
This is actually pretty easy.
Head out to the web or your files and collect a projector in Flash 4, Flash 5, and MX (You can collect a Flash 3 and 2 Projector if you want- I've included 3 Projectors). The content in them is irrelevant so they can come from anywhere as long as they are actually Flash projectors (SWF Studio Projectors will not work). You can tell what version of projector you have by clicking Help'<%gt%>'About. Rename them Flash4.EXE, Flash5.EXE, Flash6.EXE respectively
Place them up in a Directory, C: is a good place for them, and remember where you have them.

|I'm suppose to put something here? Okay I was up late one night when and was moving files around on my computer when I found out that any projector file can be used to play SWFs. I decided to type this out so that somone else may make some use out of it.|
