Subject Re: Flex 4.6 Spark Skin question
Date Fri, 06 Feb 2015 21:57:59 GMT

Is there a particular reason you are maintaining two separate projects?  Is
it your intention to share the skins across projects?

One thing you can try to it add your skins directory as a secondary source
root.  I'm not sure how to do it in FlashBuilder, but I recall it being
pretty simple.

That would probably solve both problems.  But if you attempt to reuse
projectSkin in a third project, you will still have to contend w/references
to possibly non-existent HostComponents that are referenced in Project1.
