Fortop SWF Resources Extractor is an Easy-to-use software which can Extract images and sounds from any Adobe Flash SWF/EXE file which not only exists in local machine but also comes from IE and IE-based browsers cache directory.

Fortop SWF Resources Extractor is very easy to use: Drag a SWF file into the software, and then drag the image or sound resources you want to the Explorer. It can also pack Flash SWF to Flash EXE file or unpack a Flash EXE file to Flash SWF file.
Works good for extracting resource files from SWFs, and sifting through the Browser cache. It is very simple and easy to use.
The "Pack to Flash" did not work, and the Flash files I used were corrupted, and no longer usable. Luckily they were only copies of my original files.
A part of the program worked for me (Flash extracting and Browser cache), but the "Pack to Flash" did not. Also, it's worth noting that I did not try the program on more sophisticated flash (SWF) files, that may include coding and other Resources besides Images and Audio files. And what about Flash Videos (FLVs)?
