The past month I've been working on an animation and it took a lot of effort and hard work, but suddenly today I tried to open the file and it says "An error occurred opening file "C:\Users\(my name)\Documents\The thing I'm wowking on.fla". When I click "OK", another error pops up "A JavaScript error occurred In file "Publish.jsfl": Error: File 'C:\Users\(my name)\Documents\The thing I'm wowking on.fla' could not be opened"

After clicking OK again, Animate then shows me a black screen. The File, Edit, View, and everything else is still there. I tried finding how to fix this issue for the past hour but I eventually gave up.

make sure you have the latest version of animate.  if you do, your fla is corrupt.

you can look for a recovery file* and you can try repairing by renaming the fla to a rar, using winrar to repair, renaming the repaired rar to a fla and trying to open the fla in animate.

win: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Adobe\<animate version>\en_US\Configuration

When I tried that all it did was delete all my symbols and scenes and just left me with images and sound files
