Flash exe's into Vegas

I was given a file at work and asked if I could make a "loopable" dvd for an unattended presentation.

The file is a flash .exe self player. I've used .swf's in Vegas before with no problem, but how do I get the content out of the exe file.

I have Swish Max but the import of the file is less than great.

Some of it comes in, some of doesn't. The images seem cropped etc...

Anyone know a way around this?

Not an ideal suggestion but you could try a screengrabber like Camtasia Studio and play the Flash exe while recording the screen. Camtasia is great for this kind of thing.

yeah, I was thinking about that route, but the flash was too long and I knew I'd end up with an enourmous file.

I did more research and learned that vegas just really only supports swfs for titling etc.

We worked around the problem with a vbscript a coworker wrote to launch the exe and then count down the run time, close it and launch it again.
Not elegant but it works...

Thanks for the input though.
