Subject Re: Windows script to build an Apache Flex SDK for an IDE such as Adobe FlashBuilder or JetBrains IntelliJ
Date Wed, 01 Aug 2012 03:41:22 GMT
Hi Carol,

I just tested your script, it ran without problems. However, when I
added the sdk to the Flash Builder IDE, compiled an existing project,
and tried to change to the desing mode, I got the following message
"The Design Mode is disabled as the project uses an incompatible
version of the Flex SDK". Strangely enough the project runs and I was
able to export a realease build wich works just fine, it's just the
design mode I can't access.

Best Regards,
