I’m angry

cannot open 01-1_First_Animation.fla from the downloaded file.

I am unable to open the missingmanual cd files for Flash CS5 the missing manual. The error message says your example named 01-1_First_Animation.fla. "...was created with Adobe Flash 5.5 and cannot be opened in this version of Flash". I purchased what I believe to be the most recent version of Flash earlier this year (CS5 version 11.0.0.485) I would appreciate any help. (a6376857@yahoo.com)

  • Hi,

    I'm sorry to hear that you encountered a problem with the example files. I think the problem is that there are two different versions of Flash, Flash CS5 and Flash CS5.5, and we have books and example files to accompany them both. Adobe released CS5.5 just this spring.

    If you have Flash CS5, and Flash CS5: The Missing Manual, you would use the examples from the Missing CD page here: http://missingmanuals.com/cds/flashcs5tmm/.

    It sounds like the other book, Flash CS5.5: The Missing Manual, and its Missing CD are not compatible with the version of Flash you have.

    If the book you have doesn't match the version of Flash you have, feel free to exchange your book where ever you purchased it. If you have any problems exchanging it, you can get in tough with our orders team at orders@oreilly.com or at (707)827-7000 / (800)998-9938.

    Regards,
