Subject Re: Preliminary release candidate of Apache Flex 4.8.0 (for developers only)
Date Thu, 03 May 2012 20:30:19 GMT
There was a JIRA ticket to replace the exe files with bat files:
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-37

So while they exe files are available in the previous Adobe releases, they
will not be in the Apache releases.

regards,
Christophe
