Any idea why I couldnt not open a flash fla file in Flash MX?

I don't get any security warnings or anything, if there is such a thing. The file when double clicked says "incompatible file format.

I hit a command prompt and it LOOKS like a proper 8.3 file format as well...

Any ideas?

Verison is 6.0

Is there a later version and perhaps it isnt forwards compatible?

The newest Flash, version 7, does not create files that are compatible with previous versions because of the scripting components. You can, however, have version 7 save a file that is compatible with earlier versions. You might lose some of the scripting functionality, though.

Or it could have been made in the abode flash program.

I'll try the MX 2004 trial and see if that works...

Thanks...

I went out and bought a "lynda.com" course for Flash MX, and to my surprise, none of the practice excercises worked as well. I have flash MX and the course is using MX 2004.

I am in Kuwait , and adsl is stupidendiously expensive... so I guess I'll just have to waste a full night on DIAL-up downloading the MX 2004 trial and I pray to god the other people sharing the phone line don't mess with it, or that the phone line doesn't disconnect.. ..
