Turn .swf file into an .exe?

Miscellaneous Forums/Monkey Discussion/Turn .swf file into an .exe?

Is it possible to turn a .swf file, generated by Monkey into an .exe file? I`ve played several PC games that are in .exe format that have been made in Flash and just wondered how it is done.

Well, you could use SWFKit, which is incredibly expensive:

Or develop it with Adobe AIR, which is free (kinda):

...but why? If you've written it in Monkey, isn't the whole point that you can just compile to exe instead using the OpenGL target?

I was just curious really. Some Flash games can be downloaded and already include some sort of player that doesn`t need to be installed by the user.

This seems to work:

Thanks, I will take a look.

You can try Adobe's own Flash Player, it has a menu item called Create Projector.
