I can start Flash Ok, but as soon as I select a document to open, or create a new document, Flash just hangs indefinitely.
I’m running windows 8.1 on a Bootcamp partition of a Mac Book Pro. I work in development so there maybe a conflict with one of the SDK packages I’m using But I have no way of knowing for sure.
I have uninstalled all java SDKs but to no avail. I should also mention this does not happen with Flash CC.
Any ideas would be very helpful, as I’ve already spent about a day to trying to trouble shoot this.
reset your preferences by holding down shift-ctrl-alt while starting flash. you'll see a confirmation dialog if done correctly.
if resetting the preferences fails, uninstall, clean and reinstall per Use the CC Cleaner Tool to solve installation problems | CC, CS3-CS6
if you need to manually reset the flash preferences, Re-create preferences
