I have Flash 8 on my Home PC, on which I do most of my
flashing. But somtimes I get bored a school, and work on some flash
stuff there. However, when I try to open up some stuff I worked on
at home (flash 8) at school (Flash MX), It says: "Unexpected File
Type", and refuses to open the file, even though it's a .fla file.
I even tried saving my flash 8 files as flash MX 2004, on my home
PC. I am getting overly frustrated.
Flash MX .fla's can only be opened with Flash MX or better
Flash MX 2004 .fla's can only be opened with Flash MX 2004 or
Flash 8 .fla's can only be opened with Flash 8 or better
(nothing better yet!)
So, you'd have to somehow convert your Flash 8 .fla to a
Flash MX .fla, and Flash 8 can't do that itself. However, if you
have Flash 8 and Flash MX 2004, you can go from Flash 8 .fla ->
Flash MX 2004 .fla using Flash 8. And then Flash MX 2004 .fla ->
Flash MX .fla using Flash MX 2004..
And if you don't have 2004, perhaps you can upload your file
and someone will be kind enough to convert it for you.
