So far I've never had any real problems - short of some temp hangs when switching tools.
So I started making a game in Flash (CS6). I'm still in the beginning, I just imported two images to get started with the backgrounds. I added some text, converted it to symbol and had it in the timeline to fade out. I added some code at the last frame to move some stuff around, but didn't get to test it.
I pressed CTRL+enter to view my work, but as soon as the animation started playing, I closed it to continue (I have a habit of pressing Ctrl+enter for no reason at random times). When I closed the preview, Flash hanged (permanently).
So I forcequit it, and reopened it. I tried to open the RECOVER file Flash made for me, but it hang again. Forcequit, reopen, tried to open my old file, hang.
Forcequit, reopen, tried to make a new file. It worked. I started working again on other stuff (I'm just testing the waters for my game), wrote some other code, did some other animation. I previewed, worked fine, as soon as I closed the preview, hang. Again with the forcequit and trying to open the different versions (RECOVER and manual save) to no avail.
My question is: WTF?
I mean, how can it work perfectly, preview perfectly and when I close the preview it crashes?
I have CS6 (and I don't want to reinstall because I have it as part of the whole suite, 2-3 hours of installation that is) and Windows 7 x64 Home Premium. I also have a Wacom Intuos 4M (yes, newest drivers, reinstalled, rebooted etc) that I have hooked because I used it to draw some stuff in the file.
PS: forgot to say that if the file does not contain any script, everything works like a charm.
You can try the good old rebuild the preferences trick which is quit flash, restart and IMMEDIATELY after hold CTRL+ALT+SHIFT. You will get an option to let Flash rebuild its preferences incase it has become corrupt.
Also, suites allow you to uninstall specific applications, just like you can reinstall specific applications.
Neither of these should really be required.
It goes without saying, make sure you check help->updates to make sure your Flash is up to date.
What version of AIR SDK and Flash Player do you have installed or have you even updated them?
Actually, the rebuild preferences trick worked! Thanks!
You're welcome and good luck!
