Vector objects are displayed incorrectly

I am using Flash CS6. I need to draw a small vector icons (about 14x14).


Simple example: I draw a rounded rectangle with corner radius  "2". Here is a resulting image from Flash (14x14, 100% scale):


As you can see, top corners are not drawed correctly, and bottom corners looks like radius is "1", not "2".


And here is what I expect (from Photoshop):



The same thing happens after importing icon from Illustrator to Flash as editable path - icon is distorted. But when I impoting it as bitmap - it looks exactly the same as in Illustrator. Only vector shapes showing incorrectly.


How can I fix it?

    Neither of those appear to be vector objects as evidenced by the presence of pixels.  I don't understand why you label them as 14x14 at 100%.  If anything they are signicantly magnified.  Below is a 14x14 vector rectangle with a corner rounding of 2 shown at 800% drawn in Flash CS3.

    Vector objects do not display pixels.  Your screenshots are not vectors and if you magnify them the pixels will display.

    If you really do have vector objects, try checking the "shape hints" box.
