     To show how to embed any flash (.swf) movie into any VB.Net application and how to use the equilivant of app.path in VB.Net

'To add a flash movie to any app first you need to add the shockwave flash object most likely if your system is updated it will be called flash ocx. once its added create a sub to play the movie
mine is as follow:
Private Sub playflash()

With AxShockwaveFlash1
'my control name
.Stop() 'make sure you control the running of the movie
..Movie = "C:\Documents and Settings\MySide _
\My Documents\Visual Studio _ Projects\WindowsApplication8\rose.swf"
'now there are three ways to locate the movie
'or this code with result in an EXCEPTION!
.Movie = String.Concat _(Application.StartupPath, _ "\rose.swf")
'(2) is like using the App.path in VB6, The file HAS TO BE IN THE BIN DIRECTORY as well
.Movie =System.Windows.Forms.Application. _ _StartupPath & "\rose.swf"
'(3) my fav of all
.playing = True
End With
End Sub
'now we get it to play.
you can download this code from read the .txt file and you will have it working! Good luck
