Subject Re: Preliminary release candidate of Apache Flex 4.8.0 (for developers only)
Date Thu, 03 May 2012 20:34:38 GMT
there is no aasdoc.exe, i believe the confusion is aasdoc.bat would
normally call asdoc.exe with a command line parameter.

aasdoc.bat needs to do what the new asdoc.bat does, but pass in the
equivalent of what "+configname=air" did before, when passed into the
asdoc.exe.
