I am trying to learn Flash. I downloaded a sample preloader that simulates an analog speedometer, and am trying to recreate it.
I have posted to my server two versions (the one I downloaded that works, and the one I created that does not.)
As far as I can tell, the two files are identical. However, the one I downloaded works, and the one that I attempted to recreate that does not. The exact action that is not working is the needle does not move around the dial. (I do not have any problem implementing a preloader, I just can't get the needle to move on my version.) I am just not familiar enough with Flash to figure this out.
At this point, I realize I could just use the version that works, but it is aggrevating me that I cannot recreate a simple thing when I have a working example right in front of me. I have compared everything that I can, and from my viewpoint, both .fla's seem to be the identical, except of course I have obviouslt left something out, or it would be working...
I have spent 6 hours on this, and am going nuts. Wife and kid won't come near me... Help me and my family out.

This should be an easy 200 points for a Flash guru. Please tell me what I forgot to do on the non-working version.
