I am working with FLAs created by another developer. The swfs are live and working. What happens when I open the FLAs and publish from Flash Cs4 is this:
The actionscript is not in the action window.
In it's place is this: // Warning: in this unregistered version, no Action Script will be generated while exporting the FLA.
The SWFs do not work, all actions are removed.
Note: I am not using any compilers, etc. although I do have a trial of Swish installed. I just recently installed and started using CS4.
When I called Adobe, they confirmed that my version of CS4 is registered correctly, and advised me to simply remove the warning text, and re-write the actions. This is not an option, as I have hundreds of FLAs to edit, and I KNOW the code was in there and working before I opened the FLAs in CS4.
Anyone know what could be happening here?
I would so appreciate any assistance. Thank you thank you thank you in advance!
That error is typically generated from unregistered Flash decompilation software (like the trial version of SoThink SWF Decompiler). This software allows a person to take a SWF and convert it back into a FLA, but, if you didn't pay for the software, they don't give you the actionscript for it.
I would talk to the person who created the FLAs and find out what happened on their end.
Thanks. I will try to get an answer, and post what I find out!
