I'm assisting my professor with a class helping students build an online portfolio. Yesterday, one of the students sent me a bunch of .fla files to review and I made some changes, inserted a bunch of comments in the code and told her to change the rest of her files into the same format. (Adding keyframes, frame labels and button codes, etc.)
Then she emailed me to tell me that she keeps getting this error message every times she makes a mistake and tries to "undo" something.
"Every time I open up the drawing page and another one of my subpages like logo design for example, I work on what you said to do, but if i make a mistake and undo it, I get this error message and all my images disappear completely from the time line. I have attached a screenshot of the error message, maybe you know whats going on but I'll keep working on it and try to not have to undo something because at the moment that seems to be the problem. I have to close flash and reopen everything to make it go away."

I read the thread out there about this but it seems it's related to using CS4 or saving, which this is neither. I would really appreciate any help on this and if it's a bug maybe what is causing it. I'm sure it's related to me taking and modifying them and sending them back, but I suppouse it's possible it's not. I am going to give her the link to this thread and have her update any system updates for Flash. We will probably revert to the old copies, but I'd like to know what caused this to prevent it from happening again.
Thanks for any help.
As for your student machine, since it is happening to the files after editing there are a few things we can try.
You can delete user configuration folder and preferences files.
1. Quit Flash if you have it running.
2. Delete your user configuration folder:
Window XP - C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Adobe\Flash<version>
Window Vista & Window 7- C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Adobe\Flash<version>
Mac - Volume/Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Flash<version>
3. Follow instruction from the following link to recreate your preferences files:
4. Reboot your machine.
5. Launch Flash and see if you are still seeing this issue.
