I work in the art department of a documentary series and I have a Dell Iinspiron 3200 running Windows 98 (with Flashplayer 9) that I need to use to run animations that I made on a seperate machine running CS5. How should I publish them so that they can be played on the laptop? When I bring the files over, they are recognized as flash applications (the icon is right) but trying to play them results in two errors: "(directory) file expects a newer version of windows. Upgrade your Windows version" and "(directory) a device attached to the system is not functioning"
I have tried publishing as version 9, but the fies still won't run, and examining the properties of them reveals a file version of 10.1.
How can I get this to work?
Thanks in advance
PS: Further investigation has brought up the possibility that it may work better if I rewrote it in as2. Apparently as3 may not be able to write back to older versions...can anyone perhaps confirm or refute that before I restart the project?
