I'm hoping someone can kindly offer some advice…
Over the past couple of years I've had great success creating a number of custom file info panels for CS4/5 using:
Flex Builder 3.0.2
XMP FileInfo SDK 4.4.2
Flex SDK 3.2.0
Ant View 2.2.9
(under Mac OS X 10.5.x)
I've recently started evaluating Flash Builder 4.5.1 as a newer development platform (under Mac OS X 10.7.x), and note that the XMP FileInfo SDK 5.1 documentation states that Flex SDK 3.3.x should be used - not Flex SDK 4.x. so I then installed Flex SDK 18.104.22.16852 (from Adobe Open Source).
When creating a new panel using XMP FileInfo SDK 5.1 (com.adobe.xmp.sdk.fileinfo_fb4_1.1.0.jar) and Flex SDK 3.3.0, Flex Builder says that "The Design Mode is disabled as the project uses an incompatible version of the Flex SDK" among other issues.
I've also tried using Flex SDK 3.6.0, but that seems to give anomalous error messages, especially when I'm trying to modify a project imported from Flex Builder 3.0.2.
Since I apparently can't use Flex Builder 3.0.2 under OS X 10.7.x, can anyone offer any advice on a known working combination of FileInfo SDK and Flex SDK versions for Flash Builder 4.5.1? I don't mind continuing to use FileInfo SDK 4.4.2 if there is a Flex SDK that will work with it.
Might there be something in the Flash Builder configuration/prefs that I might have missed? Am I tripping myself up somewhere else?
Flash Builder 4.5.1
XMP FileInfo SDK (suggested version?)
Flex SDK (suggested version?)
Ant View 2.2.9 (the latest version I can find)
(under Mac OS X 10.7.x)
Many thanks in advance for info/advice - there are so many permutations I thought I'd ask the experts,
