    I suggest the free trial of Swish, it will work and their licensing after the trial is much more affordable as well.

    Thanks KC,

    I will try it because the other softwares(from Panopta above) I have tried are all server based...I was looking for a windows xp alternative.

    Many Thanks,

    no alternative

    in editing .FLA files, there is no alternative for adobe.
    Those third-party software generate other file types.

    Cheers blues all we want!

    I've tried to find free alternatives to Adobe flash, but hadn't got any luck. There are few cheap alternatives like Koolmoves and Vectorian Giotto, preffered Giotto cause it had more Adobe-like features.

    Thanks for sharing

    Yes it true, if you want to edit .FLA file then you have to do this in Adobe Flash. (Please also check Flash CS4 file does not open in CS3), all other mentions tools generate .SWF files or some images/movie files. These tools doesn't even save files in .FLA, every have its own extension like Swish save files in .SWI

    I recommend download flash trial version and use it.
