I need to make some simple edits of .fla files (links, etc), which is the easiest to use program that I should get as as I have never edited flash before.

Thanks!

Keep your paths in a XML file. Read those paths from XML file. When you want to change paths, just only change the XML file. Then flash file will automatically read paths from XML file.

.FLA files can be edited only using Adobe Flash authoring tool,
no third party editors are available till date.

you can download a 30 days full working trial version at following url:
http://www.adobe.com/downloads/

Choose "Flash CS3 Pro" from Trial dropdown and press go

NOTE: you may need to register urself with basic details to download a trial version.

Ok, I will give the 30 day trial a go, but is there only the "Flash CS3 Pro" version or is there a cheaper "light" version available? also how easy is it for a total beginner to make simple edits using this software?

Thanks

If you are a totally newbee, then it will definitely take considerable effort to get use to Flash GUI and basic actionscript etc.
