    Error opening URL

    I'm new to flash and trying to figure out some actionscript. I keep getting an error when i try to preview my movie

    "Error opening URL "file:///C|/DOCUME%7E1/bear/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/Rar%24DI01.136/locations.swf"

    any ideas on what to do??

    Welcome to the forum aya

    Your Flash document is trying to open location.swf which it has been told to find. I'm no expert but it looks like to me that locations.swf is in a rar archive (ie a temporary archive) which will prevent the file from opening by Flash.

    All your working documents should be in an unarchived format in the same directory and then you check that your flash file has the correct path to find locations.swf.

    Give that a go - if it doesn't work then post up your .fla and we'll try and sort it out for you.
