Cannot open my old .fla files

because Air is no longer Adobe product, and I need to enable Air publishing. 

But my old files were not using Air, to my knowledge.  I tried installing from Harman, but run into some issues with extracting the file.  But above all I am not even sure if I need air for anything else than opening my old .fla files. If Air is an essential part of Animate, why do I have to pay for it separately, to a different company?

You don't need Air just to open a fla file. If the fla uses Air and you don't have it, Animate will show an alert but will still open it.

right, makes no sense.  Yet when I try to open this file, I get a message "Air SDK is no longer shipped with animate.  In order to open this file enable air publishing. Get help."  And when I click on get help, it takes me to the Harman site.

Sorry, previous comment by me is not right.

You can download Air from https://airsdk.harman.com/download after clicking on the checkbox. You don't need to license it just to open a fla. Or you can still download Air 32 from https://www.adobe.com/devnet/air/air-sdk-download.html
