I want to know if I can play SWF files in Flash player WITHOUT opening a browser or Windows Media Player for it like I used to back in Windows XP?
If so, how could I go about it on 7?

Like I'm pretty sure I was using Flash Player to make it work, but with it all installed, I can't make it do so.

Yay! That was what I needed.
Now, I did run into something with a file that doesn't seem to be updated. I'm wondering if there is some kind of cache related to it and I do not know if there is a seperate cache that the files are placed to.
I cleared my IE browser and Firefox browser and the swf in question is showing me something different than it is on the website (when the website version is updated).
Would you know as well if it does keep cache and where it would be?

Based on your sig I think your running w7.
I would check the dir projector is installed, then check your profiles appdata folders and see if there is a cache there. Failing that it may be hidden in c:\programdata (hidden folder) somewhere.
I dont know exactly, just guessing the places I would check.

It ended up being that the file was being downgraded at one point and so we got it fully upgraded again. After that fix, it was working. Thanks!
