Adobe Flash, Flex back in turd bowl! Their Flash Builder 4 trial actually expired!!

Screw it. I plan to develop maybe a 100% Flash free player using Java for my application.

Well, congrats to Adobe for being back in the Turd Bowl!

A gift from Adobe? My Flash Builder 4 trial still works after expiry? Adobe removed from the Turd Bowl

A gift from Adobe? My Flash Builder 4 trial still works after expiry?

This includes Flex development as well as Flash. To my surprise, Flash Builder 4 still works after expiry. I ain`t complaining. Guess, I removed them from the Turd Bowl just for that!!! I just wish someone told me.

Unlike Eclipse, I love how Adobe Flash's player exceptions do not get thrown in Flash Builder console

AAhh. Java wannabee Flash developers Adobe can never get it right. When a JVM throws an exception, it is shown in Eclipse’s console. Don’t expect that in Adobe’s Flash Builder. Another comedy show.

Adobe even more braindead. How to properly configure Flash Builder 4 for debugging Flash, Flex, and MXML?

Adobe even more brain dead. How to properly configure Flash Builder 4 for debugging Flash, Flex, and MXML?

Once again Adobe proves to be really, really brain dead. I have searched for any tutorials that help me set up Flash Builder 4

http://www.adobe.com/devnet/flex/articles/flashbuilder_shortcuts_tips.html

Anyhow, I don’t see any mentioned of how to set up the configuration of Flash Builder 4 for debugging. It does not appear out of the box as you would expect. If you download Eclipse’s free Java integrated development environment, the debugger out of the box with no additional external tool. With Adobe’s moronic way, you need to ensure you download the embedded debugging Flash player.  Here:

http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html

9/20/2010 Updated debugger (aka debug players or content debuggers) and standalone (aka projector) versions of Flash Player 10.1 are available for Flash Builder 4, Flash Catalyst, Flash Professional CS4, and Flash Professional CS5 users. These players contain fixes for critical vulnerabilities identified in Security Bulletin APSB10-22. All users are encouraged to update to the new players. These new players are version 10.1.85.3.

Nice one Adobe. Must have been that pot your stupid engineers smoke. Or sorry, maybe they were born brain dead again.

Anyhooo….

We need proceed in within Flash Builder 4, Run -> Debug -> Other

Under the Main tab under URL or Path to Launch, ensure Use Default is not checked. Also, ensure that Flash Builder will launch your projects SWF file found in the project’s bin-debug folder.

That should fix that so that you can launch the Debug perspective from Flash Builder.

I don’t know why Adobe cannot explain that so simply. I got this resource from this site:

http://blog.johannest.com/2010/10/19/debugging-actionscript-and-javascript-simultaneously-with-flash-builder-4-and-aptana-studio/

Thanks to that author. Also, it appears it is not current for Flash Builder 4 but the above step should work.

Also, you may need to run->Debug->Other. Click Debug in same panel with same options listed below.

It is a sad day when Adobe decided to make Eclipse look junky with this Flesh Builder I mean Flash Builder Flex Builder

For those using Adobe CS3 or 4, use this tutorial:

I can tell you Eclipse is now where as wonky as this:

Love Adobe's Flash or Flex error SecurityError: Error #2148: SWF file? The solution is….

Love Adobe’s Flash or Flex error SecurityError: Error #2148: SWF file? The solution is….

This a dumb out of the box assumption from Adobe’s Flash or Flex Builder. You get this when you run your source:

ActionScript Error #2148:
SecurityError: Error #2148: SWF file file:///C:/Documents and Settings/UserProfile/Desktop/flexstore/bin-release/flexstore.swf cannot access local resource myFile.swf. Only local-with-filesystem and trusted local SWF files may access local resources.

Got to love that one Adobe. Anyhow here is a solution that seems to work:

I just had to figure out where to add the extra property ‘-use-network=false’. In Flex 3, it’s in Project/Properties/Flex Compiler/Additional Compiler argument.
After the adding, the text field contains :
-locale en_US -use-network=false

No need to separate the extra properties with a semicolon as I did at first.

WTF: Flash Develop runs my SWF files out of box but Adobe Flash Builder does not. Why?

Once again, Flash Builder is nothing but expensive useless junk compared to free/open source Flash Develop.
