Problem with Flash 5 image gallery tutorial

Hi -- this question was addressed elsewhere:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/WebDevSoftware/Flash/Q_21059417.html

But no clear answer is provided.  I am having the same problem.  I downloaded the Flash 5 .FLA but, no matter what I do, it will not read the images in the directory.

Because the problem seems to be a presence of MX code, could you please specify how to tweak it so that it will work in Flash 5.

Oops! I was looking at your other question, and answering this one - posted in the wrong place!  Here's what I meant to say here though ...


 Looks like the demo may have changed, as the images are contained within the FLA - so first try downloading the file again (looks like you may only need the Flash 5 file, as that's all I needed).

There was still a compilation error though for Flash 5:
**Error** Scene=scene1, layer=HER2-neu 1, frame=7:Line 1: Mouse events are permitted only for button instances
     on (release) {


This can be rectified by going to "scene1" frame 7, click on the image there, and change the code from ...

on (release) {
     getURL('http://www.qbiogene.com/products/cytogenetics/new_products.shtml', '_self');
}


... to ...


onClipEvent(mouseUp) {
     getURL('http://www.qbiogene.com/products/cytogenetics/new_products.shtml', '_self');
}

Sorry, I realise the mistake now, geod100.  My comment is both confusing, and largely irrelevant.

I would therefore suggest that you request a deletion of this question, as you have re-posted it here:

Not sure why you have accepted my comment as an answer here; not that I don't appreciate it, but  I think anyone refering to this in the future is likely to be mightily confused too!!
