assets in relative paths - folders, images, xml files

I have many existing applications, flash and other, each of which will go on a page that will need access to local folders full of assets: additional swfs, images, xml, etc. For example, the application may loop through 100 images in an /images folder and/or use an xml file to input information.

If I want to copy these folders and their contents so the application still has local and relative access, how do I do that? Oh, and some applications are also looking locally into the same folder that the application (say flash) sits in, for example an xml file.

I do not have access to many of the fla’s and would not want to open up most of them anyhow - some are old and convoluted.:frowning:

Any ideas appreciated.
