can you open animate?
can you open a different fla?
I can open animate and a different fla. There is just an error with that single fla
then you have a corrupted fla.
there's nothing that's likely to fix that. you can try the following but i've never seen it work:
rename the fla to a rar>use winrar to repair it>rename the repaired file to a fla>try to open in animate.
you can also unrar the renamed file and recover some assets (sometimes).
but most likely this will be a learning experience: always save production files (whether created by animate or otherwise) with increasing version names and 10 to 30 minutes to prevent the total loss of work.
THANK YOU SO MUCH THIS WORKED I CANT THANK YOU ENOUGH!!!
i'm surprised that worked it's such an unlikely-to-succeed manuever, but you're welcome.
