Flash CS3 Displays A Blank Error Dialogue Box

Blank Dialogue Box

I’ve just discovered a way to generate a blank dialogue box in Flash CS3. This was on a PC, I’ve not tested the Mac version yet. You’ll need to have the Adobe AIR Update for Flash CS3 Professional installed.

Just follow these step-by-step instructions …

  1. Open Flash CS3.
  2. Create a new Flash File (Adobe AIR).
  3. Save the file as ‘a&b.fla’.
  4. Click on Commands >> AIR – Create AIR File.
  5. Create a self-signed digital certificate if you don’t already have one, enter the password and click the ‘OK’ button.
  6. Voila!

Basically it is the ampersand (&) that is causing the problem. I’m not sure exactly which reference to the ampersand is causing the problem. Let me know if the above steps work for you.

    Happens here, too. Also on a PC (Vista).
