I have Mac Pro OSX 10.58 - CS 4 Creative Suite

I have been using Flash to produce projector files totally fine for months. However, today when I publish a Mac projector file I have come across a problem. Flash publishes a .app projector file OK, but, when I open it, it appears in the dock as if it were open but I don't see anything.

Any projector files I produced prior to today still play fine. But any projector files I have created today have the previously mentioned problem. I have tried creating a totally new FLA and publishing from that incase it was the FLA I was publishing from was to blame - same problem.

I have reinstalled Flash, but the error persists.

Today I also installed new software. I installed the Developer tools because I wanted to use PackageMaker. I also installed Xray. I have removed Xray incase that was at fault - but the problem still persists.

Has anyone experienced a similar problem? or got a possible answer?

Any help would be hugely appreciated as I'm in the middle of a project that requires me to use Flash.

NB: SWF files published work fine.

Thank you

$tressed Eric, did you ever find a solution? I'm experiencing the same problem and haven't had any luck so far.

Sorry to kick this old topic up again, but I'm having the exact same problem since today

Does anyone know a solution? When I look inside the .app contents, the whole .swf file isn't even in there. tried to put it in there manually but that doesn't help.
