i tried to open your project on my mac with os 10.5.8. wasn't succesful too.
as far as i could see, you project seems very complex (lots of different states). maybe this is just too much for the beta version of FC!
my tip for you, if you rebuild it, is to save different versions of it. just after every bigger change save a version with a bigger number. so you can see how long it works and what is too much.
sorry for not being a better help. maybe the adobe-guys have a better solution...
have you updated your beta to beta2?
Beta 1 will NOT open in beta 2-it will crash immediately.
Hey thanks a lot to both of you. I have a few flash videos in there and that was definitely what put it over the edge. I ended up just using FC for the things that had to be flash on the page and doing the rest in HTML. I found that worked pretty well just embedding them into Dreamweaver. I'm excited for the production version of this software it is very promising.
I took a look at your file and the problem is your "Button16" component is self-referential: it looks like you dragged a Buton16 into the skin definition of Button16 itself. So each Button16 contains another Button16 which contains another Button166 which contains... you get the idea. Catalyst should be preventing you from doing this, but in beta 2 it doesn't.
I've hand-corrected the code in your project, and it now opens correctly. I've attached the corrected FXP -- let me know if it works for you.
The file is still pretty slow to open, though, I suspect because you have so many states. One thing you could do to cut down on this is to use an Action eqauence to show/hide your dark gray video popup rather than having a separate state for each possible place it could appear. This should basically cut in half the number of states you have, making not only it faster but also easier to do editing (since you don't have two copies -- with video and without video -- of each state to keep in sync with each other).
Hope that helps,

Thanks a lot. I really appreciate the time you took to help me out with this.
Have a good one,
