    How can I load an as2 swf into flex as3 app?


      I am trying to load a third-party as2 swf file into my application, but I keep running into the following error



      TypeError: Error #1034: Type Coercion failed: cannot convert flash.display::AVM1Movie@28f7299 to mx.core.IVisualElement.

      at CasinoLoader/onComplete()[C:\_Projects\Casino_Old\FlashWrapperWorkspace\CasinoV2Loader\sr c\CasinoLoader.mxml:42]



      Based on my research it is because of the incomptability between as2 and as3 files, but should I still be able to just load it, but not be able to interact with it?


      This is the code I am using. Thanks
