FB 4 trial (4.0.1) ends soon, but i can only PRE-order FB 4.5: help !

Apr 15, 2011 4:06 AM

At the moment I am working with the Flash Builder 4.01 Trial and now I have 8 days left before it stops working. So I went to the Adobe Store to order FB 4, but I was surprised to fid out that Flash Builder only seems to be available in version 4.5 which only can be pre-ordered. Well, I did just that but at the end of this procedure Adobe lets me know that it might take untill May 3 before FB is available !


This means to me that the project that I have been working on is forced to a stop for 2 weeks!

Did I miss something out? This must be a mistake, or what? Otherwise I find this a totally unacceptable way of marketing Flash Builder. Are there any alternatives? I do not have FB 3, I must find a way to extend the trial of FB 4 or get FB 4 within a week to be able to keep working on my project.

Please help me out.

    I asked our Fb Product Manager about this, and he said you would need to do this in the other direction: if you order FB4 now, you can get a free upgrade to FB 4.5 when it's available by calling Customer Service.


    If you speak with Customer Service directly, they should be able to straighten things out.

    You could work with the preview version of burrito until May, that should last you the 2 weeks right?

    Yeah, definitely echo the suggestion of using buritto in the interim.
