it wouldn't be much of a security measure if it could just be turned off.

Ha, good point ;)

Thank you both for your feedback. I ended up embedding the gallery swf into a second swf, through which I was able to create functioning links. Success!

Hello,

I'm creating a project for which I need to run my gallery locally. The final project will NOT be hosted online. So far everything works well when I run it on my mac or throw it online. However, when I run the gallery locally on Windows, it's not opening the external links I specified in "gallery.xml."  In researching this problem, I've seen that this is common - security settings shut down the functionality when run locally, but work fine when the swf is accessed online.

Is there anyway to get around this? I NEED the gallery to work locally for this project. 

I appreciate any help you can provide.

Thanks for your time.
