dirOpener for Director 8.5 - for opening locked dxr files...

My crazy-haired friend, Jen, asked me if I knew a way to open locked DXR files for Director. Before I could tell her my usual method - to write a script to open the DXR at runtime and then copy all the cast members into an external Cast (CST) file - she had sent me a follow-up email saying she had found an old exe she used to use. I remembered it myself once she had mentioned it though I must admit I have never used it.

Its called dirOpener and apparenty it can open DXR files. I have uploaded the three versions I can find (for versions of Director 7.02, 8.0 and 8.5) in case anyone finds them useful. However - I can't seem to find versions for the newer versions of Director. Possibly the 8.5 version works as not much was changed in the more recent builds though if it doesn't I can probably cobble together one that does for anyone that needs it. Let me know...

Jim out!
