Flash CS5 - Applied ICT Unit 10 - Unexpected File Format

Discussion in 'Computing and ICT' started by maxcat1, Dec 17, 2010.

  1. Our school has upgraded from Adobe CS3 to CS5 and some students are having problems when reloading their Flash documents - an "Unexpected File Format" error message appears. Using Winrar to rebuild the file has solved the problem so far - but it is not something I want to keep having to do. Does anyone know what is causing this problem and how to prevent it?
  2. Hi there,
    Can you give any more information about what you are doing?
    As in what version are the flash files (CS3 I presume), what is the extension of the files, which version of actionscript are you trying to use (if any) and finally what are you trying to do exactly, Just File > Open... > test.fla ?

    This sort of error usually denotes that the flash file was created with a newer version of Adobe Flash, although you said that you just upgraded.

    Hope this helps, Daniel.
