    Error occured opening file...Please help!

    bnemeth

      Good morning everyone,

       

      I have an .fla file that I've been working on for hours and hours. Everything seemed to be fine when I went to bed last night, but I woke up this morniong to find I can't open the file, I get the message "An eror occurred openning file 'C:\users....'.

       

      Is there any way I can fix this? I need the file for an interview Monday morning. It still needs a lot of work and I'm really stressing. Thanks for any help anyone can offer!

          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!
