LoaderMax doesn't load one of four swfs outside the Flash IDE

Hi Carl,


I know you don't deal with Flash anymore, but I am desperate to finish this rather large program and graduate with my Ph.D. in December. I have four child swf files that are loaded individually and never appear at the same time. They all load perfectly when the parent is run in the Flash IDE (AS3). However, running the parent outside the IDE as an swf results in only 3 of the 4 loading. I have checked each child swf variable declaration and loader function and all four are identical. Could the estimatedBytes be a determinant? 


var queueIE:LoaderMax = new LoaderMax();

var queueLoader:SWFLoader = new SWFLoader("IntExtCode.swf", {name:"swfIE_loader", estimatedBytes:210000, container:this, x:5, y:5, autoPlay:false, onComplete:completeIE_Handler});


function completeIE_Handler(event:LoaderEvent):void




      var myQueue:MovieClip = MovieClip(event.target.rawContent);

      myQueue.closeButton.addEventListener(MouseEvent.Click, closeIE_Utility);



function closeIE_Utility(event:MouseEvent):void





function loadIE_FlowChart():void


     this.addChildAt(queueIELoader.content, this.numChildren);





Thank you for any help you can give me,

Thank you for considering my question. I worked around the problem by publishing the parent fla file as an application.
