Subject Re: Apache Flex AIR Installer ( was RE: [OT] Introduction and some quick questions)

Oh yes, I forgot to mention that the very first time, you need to run "ant
get-as3commons.swc" from the installer directory.  This will download the
required swc and save it to libs folder after which you are set to go.

I will make sure that this goes in the readme file.

Thanks,
Om
