August 17, 2009: Online ordering is back!
We had to stop our sales for 1 week (last week, starting on August 11, 2009). This was the first major interruption we had in more than 10 years we have been offering our products online.
Online ordering options are now available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

July 14, 2008: No UAE 6 Pre-release today :(
We are having public pre-release versions, because we want to receive feedback, so that we can make UAE work better for your needs. Unfortunately the feedback we have received has been very limited. We cannot switch to private pre-release now, but having less updates will increase the amount of feedback we receive. So, we are delaying the next pre-release. Sorry. Thank you all who have provided feedback.
July 7, 2008: No UAE 6 Pre-release this week :(
Pre-release 3 version will be available next Monday.
June 30, 2008: UAE 6 Pre-release 2 now available
This version mainly fixes some bugs, expect new features with the next release. We also have a new icon!

June 24, 2008: UAE 6 Pre-release 1.02 now available
We have spotted 3 easy to fix but important bugs (affecting only AS3 files), fixed them and updated all download locations with the new pre-release 1.02 executable. (Next pre-release version is scheduled for June 30th as planned).
June 23, 2008: UAE 6 Pre-release 1 executable now available!
Finally SWF9 and AS3 support is here. If you legally own a UAE 5 license, you can get this pre-release version. Notes:
  • This is called 'pre-release' because it doesn't have a help file and we want to keep working on improving UAE for what we'll call the '6.00 release' version. There are no known stability issues etc.
  • We will have weekly updates until UAE 6.00 is released.
  • You can read release notes here.
  • Download:
    • If you have a download page, it should be updated by now. If not, please let us know.

December 25, 2006
We wish you happy holidays, merry christmas, happy Hanukah, happy Kwanzaa and a happy new year!
(Our response times might be somewhat, but not very much, slower than usual within the next week).
November 6, 2006: Pricing change... (and PayPal now accepted!)
We started working with a new payment processing company, Plimus, in addition to excellent Emetrix. All our prices tended to end with .95, which looked like a cheap trick. Though we are aware that it may have been an unintended trick that works, we have decided to adjust our pricing, unfortunately this means an increase, albeit a very small one, 0.05 USD...

What is URL Action Editor?
URL Action Editor is a 32-bit Windows utility application, that lets you edit the URL-related actions in SWF (Flash) files. This is useful if you lose the FLA source and need to change the URL addresses. In case there are graphical symbols referring to those URLs, the utility will also let you hide/change certain types of symbols, edit instance names, linkage IDs, colors (for vector symbols), initial text (for editable text symbols) and tweak coordinates.
Important: URL Action Editor 5.x is compatible with SWF versions 8 (Flash 8) and below. Officially, only Flash 8, MX 2004 (7.0, 7.01, 7.2) MX (6)/5/4/3 generated SWF files are supported.

Main Uses
When your FLA is lost, usually the SWF is surviving somewhere on the Net. Most of the time a need arises for simple changes to the SWF. Most requested change is for the links, also sometimes some graphics or buttons are to be hidden. And sometimes you just need to replace one symbol, say a (non-streaming) sound or a logo.
While there may be many ways of redoing the FLA, UAE will let you make the small required modifications without touching the rest of the SWF. In case of editing URL related actions in the SWF, UAE provides a very easy to use interface.
With URL Action Editor you can (for Flash 8, MX 2004, MX, 5 or below generated SWFs);
  • See the list of, Edit string/number parameters of, or Disable if necessary, the supported URL-related actions in a SWF, which are:

      Directly URL-related actions:
    • getURL
    • fscommand
    • fscommand2
    • loadMovie
    • loadMovieNum
    • loadVariables
    • loadVariablesNum
    • print
    • printAsBitmap
    • printAsBitmapNum
    • printNum
    • unloadMovie
    • unloadMovieNum
      URL-related object methods / functions / properties:
    • .getURL
    • .loadMovie
    • .loadVariables
    • .unloadMovie
    • .load
    • .send
    • .sendAndLoad
    • .loadSound
    • .allowDomain
    • .domain
    • ASnative(301,0)
    • ASnative(301,1)
    • ASnative(301,2)
    • .htmlText
    • .url
    • .play
    • .connect
      Following types of actions are supported as default 'Extra Actions' ('Extra Actions' can be configured and more actions can be added to the following list):
    • All actions that include the '=' operator
    • All actions that include the '==', 'eq' operators
    • All actions that include the '===' operator

    UAE can also change the type and the evaluated state of a parameter. (This means for example you can change a variable to a constant string or a string to a variable, or a boolean to a number).
    For optimized SWF files (created by Flash 8/Flash MX 2004), registers will be shown as _local1, _local2 etc. and will not be available for editing. Also, function parameters passed in registers cannot be edited.
  • See the list of symbols in a SWF (except streaming sounds), where you can Import a symbol from another SWF or Replace a symbol with another one from another SWF. Edit the URL of an imported symbol, the text and variable name of dynamic/input text symbols, the linkage ID (export/import ID), Instance Name of a symbol.
  • See the list of timelines and frames in a SWF, Hide a symbol (layer) on a timeline or Change a symbol with another one where you can use previously imported/replaced symbols which effectively lets you change a symbol (except streaming sounds) on a timeline with another symbol from another SWF.
  • Add a getURL action to the end of any frame.
  • Add a new layer to any frame.
  • Modify colors in graphic and text symbols.
  • Modify locations of symbols.
  • See the frame labels in a list. Add, Delete, Rename a frame label.
  • See movie properties (Disk location, SWF version, File Size, if the SWF is compressed, Width, Height, Frame rate, Frame Count, Background Color, Bounding rectangle) and Modify Bounding rectangle (Width, Height, Center), Background color and Frame rate. Add and edit SWF MetaData, FileAttributes, ScriptLimits tags.
  • With a context sensitive preview window while working.
  • UAE is a portable application. Does not have an installer, does not write to Windows registry (and needless to add, does not connect to Internet - does not 'call mothership', as some call it), can run from a USB thumb drive.
So if you're a designer who lost his FLA or a contract programmer that has a need for small changes on a SWF, URL Action Editor will save your time and resources! What is new?
