if you haven't already tried,
1. right click your fla and click open with (and select flash). if that fails:
2. with flash open, click file/open and navigate to your fla. if that fails:
3. move your fla to another directory and try 1 and then 2. if those fail:
4. rename your moved fla (with the same file extension) and try 1 and then 2.
if all those fail, upload your fla to a server and post a link.
Thanks, but no luck :-(
I just tried creating an entirely new document as well, saved every couple of minutes and everything seemed to be working fine. I closed and reopened and got the same message on that file.
I'm working on the trial version, in case that gives anyone any other ideas...
also, if it helps anyone to better understand the issue...it seems like the
file works perfectly until I close flash and try reopenning it.
cs5 trial version, issue has occurred on two files now
thanks again for any help!
