No autocomplete nor syntax highlighting on core flash libs

I recently had to format my C drive and consequently reinstall FlashDevelop.
Now, when opening my AS3 project the program doesn't seem to recognize basic Flash classes (such as Sprite and MovieClip from the flash.display library). What I mean is that it both doesn't do syntax highlighting nor autocomplete on them. Pressing F4 when standing on a flash class also doesn't do anything (previously it would show a version of the code without the actual implementation).


As you can see from the image the "fl" library and my own custom classes do get syntax highlighted. Autocomplete also works for them.

It all compiles fine because I use Adobe Animate 2019 to compile. It's just super inconvenient!

Did I miss something in my installation of FlashDevelop? Are there some settings I need to change?

I just tried, but it also doesn't work if I start a new project from scratch.

EDIT: I also tried reinstalling Flashdevelop, which gave the same issue.

EDIT 2: I now reverted to Flashdevelop 4.7.2 and all issues disappeared. I guess it's just the later versions that are broken. Perhaps my setup simply wasn't up-to-date before my windows format.
