I was trying to be generic.  Rename whatever playerglobal swc file you
have to playerglobal.swc.  Depending where you download it from the
original name differs.

What are you doing when you get this error?  It looks like you have
several concatenated paths.  Did you do a set in a command window to see
what the value of PLAYERGLOBAL_HOME is?  I'm a mac user but I was able to
follow my own instructions yesterday and get everything to build on my
vmware instance.  We know there is an issue with spaces in directory names
but that doesn't look like what this is.

Adobe Flex was shipped with the AIR integration kit and playerglobal.swc
in its directory structure.  Apache doesn't allow that unless the licenses
are all compatible which as we all know they are not. The Adobe pieces are
considered build tools and are prerequisites that you need to install.
Apache wants to make it very clear to people what code has an Apache
license and what code is considered third-party.
