Subject Re: new Mac machine, running Flex application sticks at 57%
Date Wed, 12 Feb 2014 18:22:49 GMT
Some additional info regarding using the debugger (not content debugger), 

If I type netstat -an while Flash Builder is trying to connect to the running application,
I can see port 7935 status is LISTEN. When I stop Flash Builder by clicking the red square
icon to stop the debugger, this port goes away. 

Also, another experiment for debugger (not content debugger), if I uncheck "Generate HTML
wrapper file" in the the Properties > Flex Compiler tab, then clean and compile, the application
runs. But then checking it, cleaning and compiling, leads to the original 57% problem. Maybe
that's another clue what's going on(?).

OK, I see the system doesn't respond to fdb, I need to type ./fdb instead... 

When I type r then load the swf file, the fdb response is: 

Waiting for Player to connect 
Player connected; session starting. 
Set breakpoints and then type 'continue' to resume the session. 
(fdb) q 
The program is running. Exit anyway? (y or n) y 

After I type y in the last line above, Flash Player Debugger opens a window with the application
in it, where it appears the application has run (it's just a checkbox, centered in the window).


I'm hoping that's a useful clue somehow.

Hmm. In my bin folder there is an fdb and other things like amxmlc, 
mxmlc, compc, etc. 

What is in your bin folder?
