Flex Builder 3 Error: Unable to load SWC

Feb 20, 2008 12:31 PM


I am trying to use the YahooMaps component (YahooMaps.swc) in my application. I have included it in the build path of my application.

Steps followed:

1. Right-click on the project and choose Properties or open the Project menu and choose Properties.
2. In the project properties dialog, choose Flex Build Path.
3. Select the Library path tab, and press the Add SWC... button.
4. Selected the YahooMap.swc

I still get "Unable to load SWC: YahooMap.swc". It is an AS 3.0 component. Any help will be appreciated.

    What does your MXML look like?
    The Yahoo! Maps for ActionScript 3.0 are somewhat different than their previous versions.

    You can find lots of good documentation on Y! Maps at:

    It shouldnt be a conflict between FB3 and Yahoo! Maps. I built a very simple little test app with Yahoo! maps about a week ago.

    I put my SWC in my Flex Project's /libs/ folder. Is that what you did?

    It shouldn't be. I'll see if I can create a simple Yahoo! maps example and post it somewhere and you can see if my project will compile for you.

    Just to be sure, you're using Flex Builder 3 beta 3, correct?
