Is the stand-alone player TRULY stand ALONE?

A recent project of mine is to package a series of SWF files onto CD for use in
remote areas that have no Internet access, and different versions of Windows.
I need something that is COMPLETELY stand alone and independent to play the SWF
files that would be on the CD.

By "stand alone," I mean [b]literally[/b] that it must be able to stand on its
own. That means it is a program that would run directly and immediately, and
not just be an installer, AND that it would be able to play the SWF files on
its own WITHOUT having to have any kind of Flash or SWF "plugin" installed
beforehand.

So far, the "Windows Flash Player 9 Projector content de *** " that I
downloaded from here SEEMS to fit the bill, but I'm not currently in one of
those remote areas, and my system does, already, have the Flash and SWF plugins
installed.

Before I make permanent CDs and get them out to these villages, I would like
to know: will the "Windows Flash Player 9 Projector content de *** " work on
those systems if they do NOT already have some kind of Flash/SWF installed?
Also, will the "projector" .EXE files that it creates run on their own, or do
they require the presence of the "Windows Flash Player 9 Projector content
de *** " and/or the plugins?

Thank you.

auerio,


The standard Projector EXE files stand on their own. You can create a
Projector, then uninstall your Flash Player plug-in(s) and verify that the
projector still runs on your system.
