Since I started using CS3 I sometimes get the following error: Error creating Flash movie file. Be sure the destination file is not locked or on a locked drive. Also, check that the file name is not too long. It doesn't happen all the time, and I haven't been able to figure out what causes it. I have been able to confirm that it's not anything to do with locked files/drives, permissions, or file name length.
It happens with files created elsewhere (by other developers) that I've modified, and it happens with files I start from scratch - I can create a new FLA on my desktop and it won't publish. Sometimes (but not always), publishing to a different directory than the one the FLA is in will work. This is becoming a big problem. I'm on OS X 10.4.9, 2.33 GHz Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro 17", running CS3 Web Premium package.
I am working through an audio player demonstration in the book "Foundation Actionscript 3.0". When I try to publish my AudioDemo_final.FLA file I get the following error, "Adobe Flash CS3 - Error creating flash movie file. Destination directory does not exist. Change your publish settings."The following is displayed in my output panel >> Error opening URL 'file:///C|/Sites/flashcoder.net/FAS3/Audio/AudioDemo%5Ffinal.swf'My file directory is set up like this:AudioDemo_final.flasong1.mp3com.fas3.smc (folder)Main.asSounds.as
OK I have been racking my brain to get this resolved and unfortunately there isn't a lot of info on the web. Scenario: We are in a shared environment. Central file server (Mac OS X server) over gigabit enet. We open flash files over the network and then we "try" to publish the files back to the same server in which the .fla is stored. (I have read John at Adobe's comments on the practice but this DID work).
So we access the flash file at /Volumes/ServerName/JobFolder/~Flash/ and we "attempt to" publish the .swf to /Volumes/ServerName/JobFolder/htmlfolder/flash .... this was working previously in flash 6-7 but in 8-cs3 it has stopped working and we are kicking ourselves to get some answers. When we try to publish we get the following error: "Error creating Flash movie file. Be sure the destination is not locked or on a locked drive. Also, check that the file name is not too long."
Here is the exact error I receive: Error creating Flash projector file. Be sure that Flash is installed correctly and that the destination file is not locked or on a locked drive.I am able to produce an exe but not the app.

When I go to publish my file in html I get an error message: "Error creating SWF movie file. Be sure the destination file is not locked or on a locked drive. Also, check that the file name is not too long" I've done all of the above and still get the error. I can export the SWF but I need a transparent background so I need the html.
I have created a small flash project with 6 Scenes(two scenes contain flv clips 2 minutes each(1560 frames)). If I test each scene separately it runs perfectly, but when I try to run the whole movie it runs for 10 minutes "Exporting SWF Movie" and then stops without any errors or warning and without running project or creating swf file. I am using Adobe Flash Professional cs5.5.
I have a movie which loads quiz questions from an XML file. This works perfectly, although editing the questions is a bit tricky. Whether it is possible to create an XML file from a flash movie.
I would like to create a simple template in which: - the user enters the question and answer data - the user chooses a filename for their data - this data is saved to the hard drive in the form of an XML file - this data can be accessed by a serarate quiz movie Is this possible?
I am on the last leg of finishing up a full flash site and all of a sudden out of nowhere I started getting this error when I try and test the movie.
"Error creating Flash movie file. Be sure the destination file is not locked or on a locked drive. Also, check that the file name is not too long."
Nothing actually changed in the flash file besides scripting when it started occurring. I went back and erased what I had done. Tried moving the frames to a new project, tried saving it as another file, saving it to the desktop instead of my external. Nothing works!! The strangest part is that it will work fine when I delete a couple text fields and then if I try and add something to the stage it will get the error again. Almost like I've hit some sort of limit.
when I publish my movie I get a message that says:"error creating flash movie. there was not enough memory available".I tried increasing the paiging files size and the registry size in windows but that didn't work.
I'm working under XP with Flash 8. The fla file is about 85 MB and has 60 frames with panorama photo's. Everything went great for months, untill a couple of days ago. I got the following message while publishing to a projector (or a swf): "Error creating Flash movie. There was not enought memory available." But there is enough free memory. I cleared 6GB. There is enough internal memory (2GB) and I have messed around with the virtual memory. But the message keeps popping up. On the internet I read that it could be a corrupt images. So I put everything in a new fla with mixed results. Sometimes it works and even makes a projector, sometimes (more) it doesn't. Sometimes copying frames to a new file works, but then Flash crashes, I'm becoming crazy here. How can you spot with image or file is corrupt? All photo's in the library look normal. So how do you recognize a corrupt image and how do I get rid of the error?
I have a main SWF file, in AS3, wich works as holder/loader for many other SWF files (sections). I had to make a new section ("verano.swf"), but I did it in AS2. When I try to load it, I get the following error:
TypeError: Error #2007: Parameter child must be non-null. at flash.display::DisplayObjectContainer/addChild() at Tabu/onCompleteHandler()
I'm new to using flash and actionscript, but i'm looking to learn how to make a video or a series of videos play using flash. Where the user has to click on a specific part of the screen to play the next video. I'm using Flash cs3 to do this and again i'm new to this so i don't know how to navigate very well. If anyone could provide me with a tutorial or walkthrough on this that'd be amazing.
My question is what needs to be done in order to make a .swf file go into full screen without falling to a black screen when a movie is played? I have tried coding it, however I come up with the following error.
What should I do to fix this? This is not going to be an HTML file, however, so the initial thought of changing the publish settings does not seem to work this time.
I've been creating an XML photo gallery with Flash CS4 and AS 3.0 following a tutorial. I followed the instructions step-by-step but at the end I got the following error message instead:
Error #2044: Unhandled IOErrorEvent:. text=Error #2035: URL Not Found. Could anyone in the community assist me as to how to solve the problem? The script has no errors and last time I checked all the applicable files (the .xml file, the .jpg files, the .swf and the .fla file) are in my Documents folder on the Mac.
I have problem creating AIR ap in Flash CS5.5 window for certificate always reports same error: "Error creating self-signed certificate".I filled all data in it and the problem is probably in "Save as" feature for which I don't know how it works.i put some name there and doesn't accept it.. so what to do then ?
I'm making a system to upload photos to a gallery. I'm using filereference, and it's working alright. I can upload like 20 files fine sometimes.. but when I do like 50, it starts giving me errors on over half the files.
The error is: Error #2044: Unhandled IOErrorEvent:. text=Error #2038: File I/O Error.
This may be a php error, or server error, I'm not sure. Because the file isn't even uploading at all.
I'm trying to read bmp fille byte by byte and then redraw it. For that I made a .fla file for veiwing and .as file for coding. I just started coding and made import to the follwing files in this scenario and I get errors while debugging.

I've seen many samples on filestreaming but all were using the mxml scripting that I don't know
Whenever I am trying to open a swf file (any swf file) or test a movie from the flash ide the internal player is blank and output has the msg error opening url "the path of the swf file here".This is not a problem that has to do with loading external files etc. It just refuses to open any swf file and ofc or test any movie cause it keeps saying error in opening url even in blank movies.
The simplest thing New File -> AS3 -> Test Movie -> Error in opening url I can publish the movie with no problem at all and I can run all the swf files outside of flash ide. I can debug movie from flash ide. I can html preview it from flash ide but i can't just hit cmd+enter to test the fraking movie.
I have a swf gallery that I created in flash MX which accesses images in folder using an XML file. This XML file has a header and a footer, and a standard image node for each image where the information of the exact name of each image... ie image01.jpg and the description of it ... and their locations .... is gallery01/image01.jpg etc, where gallery01 would be the folder. Currently all of this information about the images is entered by hand in the XML file and this task starts to become very tedious when there are many images per gallery. What I would like to konw.... and like to do... is create an swf or flash application that would create a the xml file... Ideally I would like the user to have a sort of gui in which each image from a folder to which he or she browses to ...is displayed... one at a time... and with the display of each image .. there is a text field where the user can name and type the description of the image.... and all of this data should somehow be recorded and stored in an XML file.
how to create a pop up window to load some images. Basically I have a button in my flash file(website) and I want the user to be able to click on the button and have the content displayed in a separate window. the separate window will be a simple swf file with some images. how can I link this external file?
I am working on school project for a beginner Flash class. The code I was given in class for the preloader does not for my particular flash movie. Q #1: can you create the pre-loader within the same file as the movie (ie separate scenes)?Q #2: if yes, why wouldn't it wouldn't work for me? i was told that it doesn't for all files, but i would like to know why?Q #3: is there a way to do it through two different files with coding (the preloader file pulling up the movie file)?
