Yes you are correct. with the latest version of edge animate Pre-loader is handled by other 2 files..
As you have mentioned that the upgraded edge project Pre-loader is if functioning fine locally it means there is no issue with the codes.
Please remove your animation completely from the webpage and insert it again. (After a fresh Publishing from the upgraded project)
If the issue till persist then i would like to know the page URL and also about the software you are using to insert animation to page ? Muse or DW?
Thanks Vivek for your quick answer. Indeed, simply removing the preloader and inserting it again solved the problem.
Another thing to mention about the upgraded Edge 5 project : it doesn't copy the original folder. My project has a bunch of JPG files in an images subfolder, as well as PDF files in a text subfolder. In the upgraded project, the images subfolder only contained the few files that are instanciated in the timeline. All the JPG files that are instanciated by the jQuery code were missing ; and the whole text subfolder was missing as well.
After duplicating the original images and text subfolder, Edge 5 crashed many times, asking me to save (which was impossible : alert displaying "Unknown C++ exception") and relaunch. I finally succeeded, but do not remember what made the difference :-)
As you may be aware Vivek, there's a long thread on this problem:
It would be useful if all these queries (and possible solutions) were in one place.
