Recently I've tried to create a projector for swf on Windows but noticed the Create Projector option was grayed out. I've tried both the default projector and projector debugger for Flash Player 11.3 on Windows XP, 7 32bit and 7 64bit and with newer swf files using the Molehill API and older ones (compiled for Flash Player 9), but with no luck. On osx everything works fine.
Has anyone managed to export a projector exe with Flash Player 11.3 on Windows ?
If so, how ? Any hints/tips are helpful !
Everybody is having this problem, yet all the feedback I see from adobe is 'we don't have this problem.'
This is exceptionally irritating. And I can't get any older versions of flash player to install so I can create projectors while adobe pulls their finger out.
I'm not so sure if adobe did it purposely or it is a bug. Anyway I published a bug report for it. Please vote for it and let other people know to vote for it or they will just ignore it. Its really annoying that I cannot create projectors out of my flash develop swfs u_u'
All the best ^^
I'm having this issue as well with the Adobe Flash Player 11.3.300.257 standalone player for Windows that is downloaded from http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html.
My work around was to use a previous version of the standalone player.
You can get an archived version of Adobe Flash Player plugins (Firefox, Opera) , ActiveX (Internet Explorer), debugger, or standalone player by going to http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/archived-flash-player-versions. html.
I used version the 220.127.116.11 download from 5/04/2012 without any problems.
Just download the entire ZIP file, extract it's contents, and find "flashplayer11_2r202_235_win_sa_32bit.exe".
It sticks that you have to download a ~160MB ZIP file to solve the problem.
The "Create Projector" option is broken as of Flash Player version 11.3 and is continued in version 11.4 and 11.5. I've filed a bug in Adobe's bug base. Please go there to Bug #3363321 and give it a vote so this bug gets fixed as soon as possible.
Well, along with abandoning Flex, Adobe has aparently made a decision, and we have all been instructed to kick-rocks.
HTML5 here I come.
I should have no problem converting 430 assorted mxml and as files to some platform that the vendors do not plan on abandoning. Then I can start on some of the other 30 or so applications that are about to become obsolete.
Thanks Adobe. Read my name backwards.
i just posted a solution for this to the Bug:
The easiest solution from Adobe is this player you just have to run (no install).
It converts SWF to Projector.
