How to launch Projector?

Hello,

It might be a silly question, but how do I launch Flash Player Projector from .exe file? It launched itself after installing and worked fine. I wanted to link .swf format with it and discovered that I can't find the launching file (program was still running, so it must be somewhere). I pinned Projector to taskbar, so I would have access to it, but that's a temporary solution (it works, Projector launches everytime). Can't launch it by .swf file, because it not linked and it doesn't show Projector as an option.

I tried looking in C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash, but none of application files there launch Projector. I tried searching for Adobe products and some key words on my computer, but it shows only Adobe Reader and some generic projector software.

I downloaded it from this Adobe page. I have Win10 x64.

Have mercy, I know it's silly, but I seriously can't find it.

Cheers!

Thanks for your reply. As I wrote earlier, there is no Projector option on the list and I can't find it on my hard drive (I tried searching by Windows search bar and looking directly in Flash folder). Any idea how to do it other way than clicking on .swf file? Or where to look for it (other than Flash folder or maybe by different name)?

The projector is a standalone executable.  It won't automatically associate SWF files with itself.   You could do that manually.

Double-click the projector executable to launch it then, in the project menu, select File > Open and navigate to the SWF file location on your system.
