I have been working on a project for weeks and now it won't load because Flash CS6 gives me this error: "The following panel or layout is missing or could not be read". Which is Essentials.xml. The file is in the directory but it is now blank. I have tried kglad's CS5.5 version of the file and can open flash with out the error occuring but my project still doesn't load. It just tells me "An error occured" opening my .fla file. Re-installing does not fix the problem. Any suggestions?
Also, I am running Windows 8
Nevermind in the essentials.xml problem... looks like I have two seperate issues. Kglad's essentials.xml file for CS5.5 worked for flash as a whole but my .fla is corrupt and can not be opened. Tried the fix where you change it to .rar and use WinRar to repair archive but that did not work.
