So are you trying to use a CS3 component and publish it as AS2?
I don't really use components any more but I had this problem in a previous Flash upgrade. I don't believe you can mix component versions. The CS3 component you are adding probably shares many or most of the names of the building blocks that the AS2 components do. So the CS3 component is converting your old components' individual elements to AS3 which cannot work when you publish for AS2.
I remember I had to do a significant amount of work replacing components when upgrading to AS2. This is mainly why I stopped using components.
This problem also occurred when a movie published for a lower version tried to load a movie published at a higher version. The _level0 movie dictates what everything else will be regardless of what version the imported SWF was published under.
I see - yes, that was the problem. If I drag the component from my Library (which is the Flash 8 component), then it works. If I drag a component from the components window (CS3 components), it trashes my Flash 8 components in the file (AS 2.0).
Do you know if there is a way to have the full list of Flash 8 components available in Flash CS3?
Yes, you can get your flash 8 components back copy them from C:\Program Files\Macromedia\Flash 8\en\Configuration\Components to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Flash CS3\en\Configuration\Components
Be sure to rename the folders before you copy. I put Fl_8_ at the beginning so I can see which is which when I look at the component list. Restart Flash, and they will be in your folder.
