Some projects you work on will require specific Flash Player or ActionScript versions, or you may be adding ActionScript 3 to a project that was created targeting Flash Player 8 or below. Whatever the specific task, it's important to be able to modify the target Flash Player or ActionScript version for your project. You can get to the appropriate menu in multiple ways. If you have nothing selected and look on the right side of the screen in the Properties panel, you'll see the Profile area, under the Publish option.
Note the Publish option shows the Flash Player version, which here is Flash Player 10, and it shows the script version, which here is ActionScript 3.0. Let's say you're doing a project where you weren't using any features that were Flash Player 10-specific. So just to hit more of an audience, you wanted to publish to Flash Player 9. So to do that, I can click the Edit button next to Profile. Note this is the same menu as you can get by going to File and then Publish Settings, and you just have to click the Flash tab.
In here, I can change the Flash Player version. So I can change it to Flash Player 9 or any other one I want. Note also you can change the ActionScript version. Though Flash Player 8 and below don't support ActionScript 3, Flash Player 9 and 10 support ActionScript 1 through ActionScript 3. So, using Flash's Publish Settings, you can go to the Flash tab and adjust Flash Player or ActionScript settings for a particular project.
