Yes. AS3 came about with the release of CS3. So, unless you have CS3 you're working with AS2. If you follow a tutorial written in AS3 it won't work. If it is a video tutorial or there a re pictures you can look and see what the logo looks like to know the difference. Macromedia Flash logo was a curled F. Looks almost like an S with a line through the middle. Adobe Flash logo if A capital F and lower case L with a red background. I find myself double checking as I watch video tutorials. It's not as important working on the time line, but crucial with AS.
