From Macromedia Flash 8 I'm trying to load a Flex2 Application swf into a MC container using the loadMovie() function.
Loading any other normal flash 8 swf it works, but loading a flex swf the container stays blank...
Any ideas?

You can load Flash 8 into a Flash 9/AS3.0 Container but you can NOT load flash 9 into flash 8...
Flex 2 creates flash 9 movies...

I don't know why you want to create FP9 SWF file if you are working on Flash 8...  You can have Flex app read the FP8 SWF just fine...  Otherwise, you might need to download the preview version of Flash 9 and play with it???
