Try this :

On mouseUp
go to frame (number goes here) of movie "name goes here"
end

Renu:

Don't try calling to ,exe's. Call from an .exe to a .dir. You must have
are a an .exe and two Direcor files- movie1.dir and movie2.dir- in the
folder.

Here's a really fast way to fix this:

1. Create a movie and name it "Stub.dir"

2. Add this to frame 2 of the Stub movie.

on exitFrame
go to "movie1.dir"
end

3. File: Save and Compact.

4. Create your projector/exe.

5. Quit

If you now open the .exe you will see that it boots and immediately
starts playing movie.dir. The advantage to this is if you make a mistake
in the movies you can make and save the changes and the stub.exe will
still play them
