Open a .swf file

by garry52w / September 8, 2009 12:30 AM PDT

I have received a .swf file in an email and I don't know how to open it. Can someone help? I have an iMac Intel 2 Duo, OS 10.4.11, I have the current Adobe Flash Player. The file attempts to open in Adobe Illustrator CS but mesage says file type not recognized. Have tried some other things but with no luck. I am sure that it is a simple thing but it has escaped me. Thank you for your assistance.
