Now from within the directory you placed your files hit the Windows Explorer View '<%gt%>' Folder Options menu button.
Click on the File Type Tab.
Scroll down until you see the Shockwave Flash Object listing. If you have never had a Flash Player on your machine you may have to create a new one by pressing the New Type Button.
If you had to create a new one call it something like Shockwave Flash Object. Choose application/x-shockwave-flash as the Mime type and SWF as the extension.
Choose this File Type and click edit:
Now you will create a few new actions that will go on your right click menu.
Click new from the Edit File Type window.
For the Action type Open in Flash 4 For the application find the file you called Flash4.exe (If you saved your renamed files in C: like I suggested it will be here C:\Flash4.exe)
Now Repeat for Flash 5 and 6/MX
Okay now when you right click on a SWF you will have the Option of Opening it in the Flash 4, Flash 5, Flash 6 standalone and the create projector option will be available to you.
By Default your SWF files will open in the last one you viewed in.
