Subject Re: Install 4.8 with flashbuilder

Check out this blog post, HOW TO INSTALL APACHE FLEX 4.8.0 SDK IN FLASH


You can hand build you Flex SDK for FlashBuilder, you can use the AIR app,
on OSX you can use ide/flashbuilder/makeApacheFlexForFlashBuilder.sh or,
at your own risk, on Windows if you have scripting enabled and are 32-bit
you can use makeApacheFlexForFlashBuilder.bat (edit line 92 and prepend
"call" so it looks like call ant -f
