Which one are you trying to view?
I have them on my machine and just checked them and they display fine. Since you are on Windows, ignore the __MACOSX project folders and open the OTHER folder that was unzipped. Once inside that folder double-click the .html file to preview; double-click the .an file to open in Edge Animate.
i did that, but its not working.
COMPOSITION FAILED TO LOAD:
Edge animate encountered eroors reading the HTML in this file
What OS are you on and which of the four showcase samples are you trying to open? None of the ones on the samples page, as far as I can see, have any reference to 978-1-4302-4350_SourceCode_ch01?
I am using Windows Vista, but tried the same on win 7, its not opening!
i was actually trying to look for the tutorials source files (sample files for edge animate), but as they were not working - so i tried the sample files available for edge animate - but they arnt opening as well ... I tried all of the four available sample files, none of them working for me
As a test, can you download this simple project file, unzip it and double-click the .an file? Let me know what happens?
Are you using the latest version of Edge Animate? What does it say on the splash screen when you first launch it?
Another way to open a project is to simply open Edge Animate; go to File > Open and browse to the source .html or .an file to open it. Have you tried this method with any of the sample files you noted above?
Another scenerio may be related to Windows User Accounts? Are you an administration for the two machines you mention? You may not have administrative rights to run the associative files. One option is to Right-Click on a .an project file, and from the contextual menu list there should be an option to Run as Adminsitrator? Try this option.
Last resort - uninstall from machine and reinstall from your free Adobe Creative Cloud.
Hope some of these help
I reinstalled it, and used winRAR to unzip the files, and it worked
Thanks a ton ...
You are welcome, Masud.
