If the Flash running as an executable, to call an .exe in the same folder
you should only need to use FS Command and type in the name of the
executable, for example:

FS Command (Command: dir_movie1.exe, Arguments: [none])

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but the fact that the Flash is in a
Director shell should not be a problem.
