Subject Re: What happened to mx.controls in Flex 4.9.1
Date Wed, 20 Mar 2013 18:19:42 GMT
It may be useful to know that I have just tested a merge of the Lab's AIR
SDK 4.7 with the Apache Flex SDK 4.9.1.  My testing has not yet been
exhaustive, but I think it works.  I am running a 4.7 AIR application
compiled with the 4.9.1 framework.  My IDE, by the way, is FlashDevelop,
which makes these sorts of things easier for me, but I am sure the same
steps will let you work with your own favorite.

A.  Download the 4.7 AIR SDK -- it no longer provides the link to the
version that does not rely on ASC2.
B.  Unzip and move the bin directory out of the way for a moment; then copy
the entire directory on top of the Flex directory in the way that we have
become accustomed over the past couple of years.
C.  The only executable from the Adobe bin that I think we want is adl.exe,
so copy that over by itself.
D.  If you build an existing application, I predict you will see MX and
Sparc components not being found.  It is not because they are not there --
the swcs are all good.  The problem is that the air-config.xml file now
only suits Mr. Thibualt Imbert's vision of what kind of applications we
should be building. Rename that to air-config.useless and copy your
last-known-good air-config.xml settings into the frameworks sub-directory
and you'll be back to a successful build and test.
