Jeffry, this is mostly true, but isn't completely true.  Apache Flex 4.8
uses SWFObject's expressinstall.swf for player version detection instead of
the Adobe proprietary playerProductInstall.swf.  Flash Builder 4.6 only
knows how to copy the playerProductInstall.swf to the output folder, so if
you build out an app with Flash Builder 4.6, the player version detection
won't work.  This is handled correctly by Flash Builder 4.7.
