Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-34911) Flex Installer on mac not completing.

David Baldeschwieler commented on FLEX-34911:
---------------------------------------------

I'm not a contributor but I've been a Flash/Flex developer for years. Both the AIR-based and
ANT-based installers are broken right now, and not knowing much about ANT I've been unable
to work around it (spent all afternoon trying to debug this!).

These instructions all fail on Mac: https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/FLEX/Installation+help#Installationhelp-AIR-basedinstalleronMacOS(10.9orlater)

Using the AIR installer it gets about 80% done but then craps out when it tries to install
OSMF.  The ANT-based installer gets a good ways thru but then dies on OSMF as well. The problem
is that the direct link the installers look for no longer exists, it's a 503 error: http://sourceforge.net/adobe/flexsdk/code/HEAD/tree/trunk/frameworks/libs/OSMF2_0.swc

You can download OSMF.swc from this URL, but it's some weird download page that redirects
to a mirror and I can't find a way to get a non-timestamped url right to the SWC that will
work in the ANT installer:  http://sourceforge.net/projects/osmf.adobe/files/OSMF%202.0%20Release%20%28final%20source%2C%20ASDocs%2C%20pdf%20guides%20and%20release%20notes%29/OSMF.swc/download

I dug around in the ANT installer.xml and disabled the OSMF download (even tho I need OSMF,
just a hack) - and then the ANT installer complained about some other .jar file that wasn't
at the expected sourceforge url.  At that point I gave up.

Even though there aren't so many people downloading Flex these days, this is a real problem.
Right now it's uninstallable on Mac. Somebody PLEASE fix these issues. I would try myself,
but I don't even know where to start. Thanks!!
