    Chance are the file needs that button. Flash is unique in that coding is sometimes connected directly with objects, so deleting an object can remove functionality.

    Hopefully you have the original, and you should start with that. First just move the play button from the stage to the side, so its not deleted. Then click on the button and go to the Actions Panel (F9) and see if there is code that says just this:


    and if its there, remove it. Otherwise click on the first frame and go to the Actions Panel and look for the code there. This code makes the movie stop.
