Maybe not for you, but at least one person has already tripped over this.
And since another failure case can happen after deployment, I think folks
should be aware that FB 4.6 has more issues than FB 4.7.

That's great, but folks still have to be careful in how they customize the
HTML wrapper.

FlashBuilder 4.6 is looking to copy playerProductInstall.swf from the
SDK's templates folder into your output folder.  Apache Flex switched to
SWFObject's expressInstall.swf for licensing reasons.  The default .html
file for Apache Flex will reference expressInstall.swf.  FlashBuilder 4.6
will not copy that file.  IIRC, as long as you have the right FP
installed, the wrapper will work fine, but if an upgrade is needed, I
think it won't work.

And if you use old HTML wrappers that reference playerProductInstall.swf
to wrap Apache Flex SWFs you will also find that swf missing if an upgrade
is needed.
