Error Creating Flash Movie File


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.

Flash :: Professional - Error "creating Movie File Be Sure The Destination Is Not Locked Or On A Locked Drive"
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."

[Code]...

ActionScript 1/2 :: Error Creating Flash Movie
How can I avoid the message:

Error creating Flash movie - there was not enough memory available!

I have 200 GB free on my drive where I publish to.

After the message appears, I have always to close all open programs and to restart again. Then it works for a while and the mess appears again.

Flash :: Not Creating Swf File When Testing Movie
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.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Creating XML File From Flash Movie
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?

Flash :: Embed Swf Movie In HTML Without Creating A Separate File?

Getting Error Creating Movie
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.

IDE :: 8 - "Error Creating Flash Movie. There Was Not Enough Memory Available."
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?

Creating A Movie File With User Interactivity?
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.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Flash Error - Make A .swf File Go Into Full Screen Without Falling To A Black Screen When A Movie Is Played?
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.

[Code]....

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.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Error #2044: Unhandled IOErrorEvent:. Text=Error #2038: File I/O Error
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.

ActionScript 3.0 :: File Streaming - Error : 1172: Definition Flash.filesystem:File Could Not Be Found?
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.

Code:- package
{
import flash.filesystem.File;[code]....

Error Message:-

1172: Definition flash.filesystem:File could not be found.1172: Definition flash.filesystem:FileMode could not be found.1172: Definition flash.filesystem:FileStream could not be found.5000: The class 'FileStreamLive' must subclass 'flash.display.MovieClip' since it is linked to a library symbol of that type.

I've seen many samples on filestreaming but all were using the mxml scripting that I don't know

IDE :: Error #2044: Unhandled IOErrorEvent:. Text=Error #2038: File I/O Error
I have got an error here i.e.,

Error #2044: Unhandled IOErrorEvent:. text=Error #2038: File I/O Error.
at AddAttachment_fla::MainTimeline/AddAttachment_fla::frame1()

i.e., here "AddAttachment" is the name for .fla file.I had also referred Flash help( i.e., F1) for error recovery. But, there is no advantage.
