You must have the .fla file to be able to edit the contents of a .swf file (because the .swf file is the exported version of the .fla file)

There are what is known as Decompilers that can try to convert a .swf from a .fla file, but these are quite controversial because way too many people use them to steal other peoples work, when their original intention was for freelancers who are asked to update a flash site where the company was not given the .fla file, or if a person needs to recover one of their lost .fla files when they still have the .swf file.

I have a use for such a program now. I have an intro that I created for a client approx 6 months ago. Due to harddrive failure I lost the fla, but they had recieved the final swf file.. Now I have an image I need to swap out but can't seam to figure out an easy or quick way to be able to do this...

What decompiler/editor would you suggest? I've tried Sothinks but don't feel this is going to solve my issue, if there is anything that output to an fla file would be great!

Any help would be appreciated!
