You will have to modify this within your Flash creator software. Open your file with whatever software you used to create your project and add the link here. Then re-save your file and now the link should work. Other wise, you are going to have to add a link to the .swf file.

Hope this helps!!!

I am assuming your using flash and AS2.
Create a button that fills your stage are.
Give it an instance name "butLink"
then on the key frame where the button is put the code below. Replace "theURL" with your url.

butLink.onRelease =function(){
getURL("http://www.theURL.com", "_blank")

hope it helps
