Grab the version you need and update Flash. Have you updated an older version of Flash with a newer FP?
I think CS6 is the only other version on my machine. Cleaned out all of the outdated ones. I grabbed the playerglobal.swc archive for 10.1, but when I open it I get "an error occurred while opening this file" message.
Here is a similar question on stackoverflow asking how to downgrade from 10.3 to 10.1 with some instructions on the playerglobal.swc and the files necessary to edit:
Here's a blog going over the same process for an older version of Flash but OSX:
The process should be very similar, only you'll find Flash CC (on Windows) in the "Program Files\Adobe" folder not the "Program Files (x86)\Adobe" because it is 64bit. I imagine the overlay process is very similar. I suppose it's time for me to grab the CC trial and give it a whirl and I'll report back if there's any difference in the process. The process has been the same for quite a few versions of Flash however so I doubt it.
Perfect! I had done everything EXCEPT writing the new XML file. What a compicated bit just to be able to export a banner for Google. Many thanks - hat tip!
You're welcome and good luck!
Well $#!*. Got it to export 10.1 and Google still doesn't like it. What the blubbins?
Is there anything in V10.1 you needed? Use the oldest version you can for the feature set you need to assure it'll work on the biggest audience. Also make sure you edited the XML fully to point to the correct folder containing the 10.1 SWC. If it's pointed to any other folder it will compile with no error.
An easy way to know is look for a feature introduced in 10.2 and beyond, like StageVideo. Here's 10.2's release notes:
If you check for StageVideo and it exists then you're not exporting using 10.1 (where it doesn't exist).
// should error in IDE, StageVideo doesn't exist
var v:Vector.<StageVideo> = stage.stageVideos;
Just hopped back to CS6. Works fine from there.

That makes it easy enough . I had to edit out the personal info, you don't want the spiders to index your number and end up in the mega spam network db.
I wanted to check Flash CC out anyhow despite I spend 99% of my time in Flash Builder and just wanted to verify you can use 10.1 with it. Using the code above I was able to generate errors because StageVideo was introduced in 10.2.
Exporting Flash CC 64bit as FP10.1:
Exporting as 10.3 where StageVideo exists:
I'm running this on Desktop so no StageVideo exists for my graphics setup (Radeon HD6870).
