I work for a large corporation and my Flash 8 is installed on
a remote server (?) somewhere; it is not on my C drive. Last year I
had a Classpath problem to the external actionscript files that was
solved when I learned how to browse to the files and add a path
under Preferences. The correct path started like this
C:\apps_pub\FLSH8010... (longer path deleted). Everything worked
fine after that.
Recently I tried to "compile" the fairly complex file that we
created last year, and the "old" error messages came up...
sample: **Error** C:\Documents and Settings\sm87191\Local
8\en\Configuration\Classes\FP8\MovieClip.as: Line 36: The class or
interface 'flash.geom.Rectangle' could not be loaded.
I checked PREFERENCES and the path I had added last year had
disappeared. I think maybe corporate IT reinstalled our apps
without telling us. So I browsed to the same location as before,
everything looked fine, and I added the path... BUT I am still
unable to compile. Still getting six error messages.
It seems to me that Flash is looking for the actionscript in
the "wrong" place. I told Flash to look in apps_pub (under
Preferences), but for some reason it is looking in "Documents and
Settings". At least that's how it looks to me. How do I tell Flash
NOT to go to "Documents and Settings"??? Why is it going there? (I
checked Publish Preview too... looks OK)

The Rectangle class is native to the API -- meaning, it's
not a 3rd
party class -- so it might be that your default classpath
settings are also
In addition to whatever folder you added from last year,
make sure you
also have a classpath for dot (.) and then also for
