In Dreamweaver CS5.5, when looking at any of my sites in the Files panel, any Flash files (.fla) show the Flash icon and can either be double-clicked to open in Flash CS5.5, or right-clicked and choose "Open With Flash". This works fine for .fla files.
I want all my .as files to do the same thing. Currently they open in Dreamweaver when double clicked. In Preferences > File Types/Editors, I added .as to the list of extensions and set its editor to Flash CS5.5 and made it primary, just like the .fla extension is set up. I clicked OK and even closed and restarted Dreamweaver. .as files still open in DW when double clicked, but now I at least get the option to right click and "Open With Flash". But when I choose that I get an error that says "Unable to launch C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Flash CS5.5\Flash.exe. Please be sure that this application exists and that there is enough memory to run it."
So its still not working for me, anyone have any thoughts why the FLA's work jsut fine but .as files do not?
Check your external editor settings in preferences.
You may have to delete any settings you already have in this for .as files, and then re-link to flash, (don't forget to select flash as the primary editor).
Well originally I didnt have ANY settings for .as files in my editor settings in preferences. So I added them, and thats when I noticed they didnt work properly, as per my post above. I have since deleted and re-added the .as settings several times, all to no effect.....
