          You simply can't - MX 2004 is version 7 of Flash - at the time Flash MX 2004 was release, only Flash
          player 7 existed - so it was impossible to have had support for a version 9 player 2 years ago
          (flash player 9 was just released recently).

              you simply cant until flash 9 (authoring tool) comes out. MX 2004 was developed in 2004 - we are
              almost in 2007 and flash 9 player has been released - but for now it is to penetrate the market and
              insure backward compatability - none of us can author any flash 9 content until the flash 9 tool is
              released - what are you wanting to do in flash 9 that cant be done in flash 8? nobody is developing
              for flash 9 right now because it doesnt exist as a tool yet.

                  Chris,

                  If you are a registered user of Flash PRO. Not sure if it is limited to version 8 or not but there is a beta release of 9 adobed made available that will publish in 9 format.

                  I downloaded it and it seemed to work though I don't publish 9 content yet. Havent' learned AS3, still learning AS2.

                  Though if Z33 does not have 8, and the beta is only available to 8 users.. Not sure on that but maybe. You are correct, have to wait until next year when adobe flash 9 ide is released.

                    Actually it is kind of funny. They want us to learn and get a head start on creating apps in flash 9 but don't give a way for most users to actually publish in flash 9.

                    I guess they expect us to be psychic and GUESS at what the 9 version of our apps will look like and work. LOL

                    We have to guess at the error messages and trace reports too.. LOL

                    Crazy...
