Whether in v5, 6 or 7, more and more frequently when I drag and drop or import a swf into a block, the application quits and gives me this error message: “FWFlashHelper has left unexpectedly”. It seems, without any certainty, that this comes from v5 and that once the problem is encountered, it has repercussions on v6 and v7. A solution to this problem?
Here is a follow up point, when talking about outdated.
That suggested conversion tool is even older than Flash’s diminishing relevance, it only supports Flash 6 and AS1. Flash 6 was released in 2002 and replaced in 2003 when AS2 was released. So if a SWF has any scripting past version 6 and AS1 that tool becomes pointless and useless.
Compatibility: It supports converting SWF files under Flash 6. Sound, > Video, Button and ActionScript 2.0/3.0 are not supported > temporarily (will be supported in the coming new version).

Probably there are more interesting questions such as:
“What happens with all the actions at all?”
“Will they be maintained and if, by whom?”
“Do the current available actions still make sense or do we need better?”
“What if an action breaks - who can I call?”
Freeway is maintained - but unserviced!!!
Since many years, I have a simple rule:
Whenever an action breaks or an action is not available, I’m doing the hard way figuring out WHAT specifically an action is doing for me. Once aware, it’s my decision using it or not. Mostly I’m using no actions at all.
Oh - not to forget. Sometimes it’s neither the action nor the app breaking things. Sometimes it’s just those disgusting “corrupted system FONT”, “outdated version numbers” or some other OS internal things.
I am not aware of all those flash stuff, never was and never will. Probably a Flash expert will rush in clarifying it for you.
