Q: Is .Net required?
A: The application requires Windows .Net 2.0.
.NET is installed by default on all Windows Vista and Windows XP computers.
Q: I have saved a preloader but when I run it on my computer I can't see the preloader?
A: To see the preloader you need to put it online on your website, as in many cases the file will load instantly on your computer, even if the file is several Megabytes large.
Q: What is the difference between an external and embedded Flash preloader?
A: An embedded Flash (SWF) preloader is embedded in your SWF file, so we literally open your SWF file and add the preloader script to it, resulting in just one final SWF file which consists of the preloader and your existing Flash file that's loading.
An external Flash (SWF) preloader is a separate SWF file, that loads your SWF file into your web page, so you have two SWF files. When you add the SWF file with just the Flash preloader you created to your HTML page, it loads your own existing (separate) Flash file into the web page.
Q: When do I use an external Flash preloader?
A: Generally, you would use an external preloader when you have very large Flash files containing video files, components or other special objects. There is no hard and fast rule when it comes to using an external or embedded preloader, but in general the above rule applies.
Q: I can see the preloader but when it reaches 100% it simply stops?
A: To solve this problem, use the external preloader instead of the embedded one, as your Flash (SWF) file probably uses a special Flash objects, as dicussed in the question above.
Q: Do you have detailed instructions on how to add an external preloader to Flash files?
A: Yes, we have created a special page outlining how to add an external Flash preloader for you. CLICK HERE to read more.
