Flash Builder crashes on loading Workbench - Mac 10.7.4

Sep 2, 2012 5:27 PM

Flash Builder crashes whenever it starts loading the workbench. Is there anyway to fix this? I searched for a possible solution and only found one, cleaning the workspace. I would try it if I knew where to go. This happened all of the sudden and I did nothing to flash builder previously.

    Omniverse Productions,

     

    To switch to a new workspace, follow these steps:

     

    1. In Flash Builder, select File > Switch Workspace > Other.
    2. Enter a directory name for the workspace.
    3. Click Copy Settings and select Workbench Layout and Working Sets to copy the workbench settings to the new workspace.
    4. Click OK. Flash Builder launches with the new workspace.

     

    This TechNote should provide you more guidance in resolving workspace issues: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-builder/kb/workspace-issues-flash-builder -4.html

     

    Hope this helps,

    Please try the following steps:

     

    Rename the default workspace"Adobe Flash Builder 4.7"( on Mac it's located at /Users/USER_NAME/Documents/Adobe Flash Builder 4.7) and try launching Flash Builder.

     

    Even if this doesn't work. Please un-install Flash Builder and use the cleaner tool(from this location http://www.adobe.com/support/contact/cscleanertool.html ) to clean and re-install Flash Builder.

     

    Please let me know if this works.

     

    Thanks,

    Hari

    Hello,

     

    This Flash Builder 'not responding' set me back by 3 days - finally got it resolved.

     

    Tried all of the above solutions, and other solutions on the net, without success.  But the following worked for me:

     

    Symptom: Everything was fine until I factored out common code from one project into a library project (called CommonLib) so that the code be reused across apps.  Then FB would hang whenever I tried to edit MXML, both in source and design views.

     

    Cause: The mxml's had some cross-library dependency interplay. For this app, I use RobotLegs along with AppCoreLib, AppUILib, and the problem-causing CommonLib.  Things went bad when I pulled out common mxml's (StackView and StackContainer - my replacements ViewStack on mobile apps) from AppUILib into CommonLib.  Whenever I tried to view any mxml extending either of the above classes FB used to hang.

     

    Solution: I moved common stuff from CommonLib back into AppCoreLib; pulled out these two mxml's back into AppUILib project - and FB went back to normal operation.

     

    FWIW, this is the error log when I went into design view:

    _____________________________________________________________

    Had the same issue, deleting the .snap file did the trick. Saved me a lot of headache reinstalling!

    Next you can try is to create a new workspace and reimport your projects there.

    hey I got the same problem as Omniverse Productions.

    I got a workspace called "_as" on other path from the original file"flash bilder4.7"

    when every I change the workspace to "_as", it's crash with out any messenge.

    but relaunch builder,it's already memorizee the new workspace,so it's just keep crash without anything can do.

    here's how I deal with it:

     

    1.delete the "cascaded" file in the file "flash builder4.7". (I don't know the cascaded file is generate by default or because I'm doing something with cascaded data with xml)

    2.then now can relaunch flashbuilder with default workspace.

    3.try to builder a new workspace and import all the project.

     

     

    hope it helps.

    When there is no .snap file deleting all <editor> elements in workspace\.metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.ui.workbench\workbench.xml did the trick

    Thanks, this solution cured the problem for me. I think the workbench corrupted when my flashbuilder 4.7 crashed mid session...
