Error message in Flash CS6

May 8, 2013 6:34 AM

I'm getting an error in Flash CS6 when trying to add web address.:The following JavaScript error(s) occurred:  SyntaxError: missing ) after argument list. I've opened new job and clicked on Publish Settings and ticked 'Permit Debugging' as suggested elsewhere on a Adobe forum but no luck. Any answers would be great.

    you opened a fla and created a button and opened the snippets panel without problem, correct.

     

    then, in the actions panel while the button was selected, you click actions>click to go to web page, correct?

     

    and that last click triggers the javascript error, correct?

     

    if yes to all 3 you have a faulty flash pro installation.  uninstall flash and then reinstall.

     

    if you did anything else, other than exactly what i listed, explain what you did.

    no, don't reinstall if there's no longer a problem.

    several others have had this problem because of a harddrive name:

     

    Turns out the problem was with the name of my harddrive. I had an apostrophe in my drive name which conflicted with the snippets panel. I changed the drive name and it works perfect now.
