Project settings - Final application
Availability: SWF Maestro EXE (EXE PRO), SWF Maestro SCR (SCR PRO)
Specify the "output" directory path where the resulting files will be
saved. By default, if the directory is not specified, it creates a directory
named "Output" under
the directory containing the "source" SWF file.
Output base filename
Specify the name for the resulting application file(s).
Screensaver Note: Microsoft requires that the name of the screensaver
file starts with ‘ss’, all letters are lowercase and its
length is not larger than 8 characters. Otherwise the name of the screensaver
may be incorrectly displayed in the ‘Display’ menu.
To install a screensaver in the system, just copy the compiled SCR file
(including the DAT file if you choose to store data in a .dat file) to
the System32 subdirectory of the directory where the Windows operating
system is installed. To create an installer that will auto-install the
screensaver use the Screensaver installer
Store data in a .dat file
By default, all files are packed into one .exe (or .scr) file. However,
sometimes (for example, when you need to include a large amount of data
in the application) it is better to pack them into a separate file because
the operating system may load large executable files quite long. Enable
the ‘Store data in a .dat file’ to pack all
files to the .dat file stored together with the .exe (.scr) file of the
application. The application will load data from the .dat file in this
This option adds an integrity check to the application. If someone modifies
the application, it won't start.
Note: do not enable this option if you are going to sign the application
using Authenticode (for example, with the help of Makecert, Signtool.exe)
or use other modifying tools because the application won't start in that
Run after compilation
Optionally, you can automate some tasks that are performed right after
compilation. For example, signing the application using Authenticode
(Makecert, Signtool.exe), applying additional EXE packers (such as
UPX), creating the application installation package (Inno Setup, Nullsoft
Scriptable Install System), executing batch
files (.bat), etc. To pass the full path to the final EXE or SCR file
in the parameters of the task, use %%OUTPUTFILE%%. For example, the
string of parameters for reducing the size of the executable file with
UPX will look like this: '--best %%OUTPUTFILE%%'.
