1046: Type was not found or was not a compile-time constant

This bug can happen for all sorts of reasons…… and it won’t throw up much information as to what the problem really is. In my case the reason I was seeing it was that I had my library item class named the same as the stage instance and/or the class reference to the object itself. Solution – make sure your names are different between class object, library class name and stage instance. Hopefully this may save someone out there some time…..

    Thanks, that was exactly what happened to me. Why on Earth can’t the error message just say “Error 666: instance has same name as class”?
