I was saving something on Flash when it crashed on me. Now I can't open it anymore, even though it still exists on my computer. I click on it to open it and Flash tells me that it has 'failed to open' it. I really don't want to start over again because it means another week of missed sleep and meals. Is there any way I can retrieve the document? I was using Flash CS5. Thank you for your time.
if you have an uncorrupted swf, you may be able to reconstitute your fla with a decompiler (like sothink).
Thanks, that would be very helpful if I had actually remembered to save a swf...
it's almost impossible not to. whenever you test your fla, you publish a swf. did you check?
