I found an article in here,
Render SWF files and get a bitmap buffer of those rendering files[^]
but its very old.
It uses a library called "ZFlash". its very old i guess. now its no where to be found.
so, is there any new way of doing this?

any info would be great... :)

thank you.


I am using windows 7 64bit
Visual Studio 2008 Professional version 3.5 SP 1
I had to download some DLL files before running the given executable. ( some MSVC42D.DLL and some other things )

i get the following error when i try to build it :( ,
zflash.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol "wchar_t * __stdcall _com_util::ConvertStringToBSTR(char const *)" (?ConvertStringToBSTR@_com_util@@YGPA_WPBD@Z) referenced in function "public: __thiscall _bstr_t::Data_t::Data_t(char const *)" (??0Data_t@_bstr_t@@QAE@PBD@Z)

Have you tried to contact the autor of that article? (there is a message board at the bottom of the article) Maybe he knows something about newer libraries.

The Renderflash Source you found does compile (some Changes needed for VS2010) and plays the included mobinex.swf. The Lib-Code seem to bee in ZFlash.cpp.

Is the really a problem ?

i didn't see the ZFlash.cpp there until u told me, probably because of the tiredness after coding for too long. I'm sorry for that, and thank you for showing it to me. :)
