    Can you please email me your fla to FlashAuthBetaBugs@adobe.com?  Please note that our filter system cannot accept .zip file. If you are  to zip your fla, please change the file extension from .zip to .zzz.

    I ran into this problem myself on OSX but it seems it could be a permissions issue.  Make sure you can write to your save destination.  It worked for me.

    Thanks elmonty2! Your tip saved me! (Save As CS4 shook the bug away somehow)!

    First time I've seen this issue today.

    I had been working the same fla for the past 5 months without issue then today it suddenly comes up with the Save error.

    My input textfields for a submission form stopped excepting things like@ # %$£

    This was fine before. I checked the embed options and the font was not embedded (TNR font).

    After I embedded the font and characters and went to save I got the error.

     

    Turns out the the font embedded in the library had somehow become corrupt????

    Anyways deleted the corrupt font and re-embedded now all good.

    I am running Windows 7 Ultimate and the CS6, but it also happened while running CS5.5. I have the same issue. I am forced to do a restore from a backup tape in order to get a later version. This has happened too many times to count and with multiple files. I am to the point of doing a copy paste to do a manual backup right in my development folder.

     

    This is unacceptable AND never happened in CS3 or CS4.

    I'm having this same problem. I recently upgraded to CS6 from CS4 and now my file keeps giving me the "unable to save" error. It's a pretty long animation file but nothing complex. A few blur filters and classic tweens but mostly keyframe animation. I'm honestly about ready to give up on flash for animation. Over the years it's given me a lot of trouble when used for classic animation purposes.

     

    The project was created on my laptop in CS4 and I'm trying to work on it on a new desktop in CS6 (full disclosure) so I don't know if some output project path is creating this bug (it shouldn't since this file has zero scripting or linkage properties that I assigned)

     

    I'm slowly rebuilding the file as a new file in CS6 so I can figure out what is causing it to flip out but with the buggy nature of flash I'll probably just give up and install CS4 on this new computer so I can try to finish my project.

    Having the same issue, for multiple users across multiple machines. CS6, Win7 Enterprise. The Adobe "Known issues" page is less than helpful on this issue:

     

    "Windows only: You can't save a FLA file in a Network/Desktop folder a second time after receiving an "unable to save" error message. To solve this issue, save the file as a FLA file instead. "

     

    Basically says that if you're having trouble saving as an FLA, then save it as an FLA!
