I am trying to fix the installation of Flash 8 on my machine
at a large corporation. The app was installed remotely. First time
around, no class files were installed. On the second try, I think
they were installed, but I don't understand how the path settings
work (under Preferences/Actionscript) and am getting nowhere.
I want to learn how to use the transition and tween classes.
Here's a sample error message:
**Error** C:\Documents and Settings\sm87191\Local
8\en\Configuration\Classes\FP8\MovieClip.as: Line 51: The class or
interface 'flash.geom.Transform' could not be loaded.
I think that the files needed are in the First Run directory,
not in Configuration.Both First Run and Configuration directories
have been installed in "en" (above). I tried adding that class path
under preferences (by browsing to the directory), but am not really
sure about the exact directory I should be aiming for. There are
several directories in First Run. Do I need to add all of the
paths? Do I need both FP8 and mx directories? The error messages
include both, so I am guessing the answer is YES.
I was getting 19 error messages. Then I accidentally deleted
the absolute global classpath from Actionscript preferences... and
I only got 11 errors!
