I'm working on a project which involves the updating and conversion of several older (~2013) .fla's. The project is at a stage now where we'd like to extract the Actionscript 2.0 out of these files to reference and build off of, however Animate deletes any Actionscript 2.0 once the file is opened.
One thought we had was to try to install CS6, in order to get a version of Flash compatible with the older files. However, they may be scratched or have some sort of file corruption as we were getting errors saying either they install had failed due to missing files or the installer failed to inititalize. Most of the help I've come across suggest downgrading to an older version of Animate through methods which are no longer supported.
Is there a way to extract Actionscript 2.0 out of an older .fla using the current Adobe product suite? If not, what might you suggest?
