Hi David -

You *should* be able to take a Flash 4 FLA, open it in Flash 5, with no
compatibility issues. Of course, you can't save changes in Flash 5 and open
it in Flash 4 again.

A file that works in Flash 4, opened in Flash 5, with no changes - does that
work? Did you change anything?

Sounds like a path issue. If you chose a path that was wrong, it's possible
that the object whose _visibility you're setting doesn't exist, and so it
just affects the whole timeline.

If you can give us more details, that would be helpful.
