    Unexpected file format.


      I just finished making my new game, using cs5.5 and all worked perfectly. Now when I try to open the .fla in the same program I used to make it, I get "Unexpected file format." and cannot open it. I have tried opening it in flash cs5 although don't know why as that obviously wouldn't work.


      The filesize is still 6.07mb so all the data is still there. Does anyone know what I can do?

          Okay seeing as I *need* this, I am willing to pay $50 to the first person that gets it working properly.
