    Can't open flash/fla files


    Hi,
    I am trying to edit a website for a friend (built with Flash and XML) and i can't seem to get into any of the .Fla files.

    I don't know if it is my version of Flash (CS4) or the files and not sure how i could test it.

    Any help or suggestions would be great. Please help i don't know what to do, haha.

    Here is an upload of one of the files i am talking about

    I wasn't sure which hosts were allowed so if i messed up please let me know.

    Thanks
    Asher

    Hi, it opens alright for me in Flash CS5.5 so I'm guessing it is because you are trying to open it in an older version. You can get whoever made the files to back-save which is easy. Just do File->Save As and then from the "Save as type" box select "Flash CS4 Document".
