Using windows 7.
Starting via double clicking the executable results in the loading screen and then nothing.
SOMETIMES, when started via the command-line, a popup appears after the initial splash screen saying that "the workspace is currently in use", which suggests that FlashBuilder is still running - which it isn't.
When started from the commandline using the FlashBuilderC.exe I get:
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Flash Builder 4.7 (64 Bit)>flashbuilderc.exe
Exception in thread "Thread-5" org.eclipse.swt.SWTException: Device is disposed
at org.eclipse.ui.application.WorkbenchAdvisor$1.run(WorkbenchAdvisor.ja va:797)
Job found still running after platform shutdown. Jobs should be canceled by the plugin that scheduled them during shutdown: org.eclipse.ui.internal.ide.IDEWorkbenchActivityHelper$4
Also, why is Abode support so bad? I don't see many Adobe support comments on the Adobe forums and when going through the support portal http://helpx.adobe.com/contact.html?product=flash-builder&topic=using- my-product-or-service the phone number they provide isn't in use!!
I can't believe how expensive this product is for the quality it provides - my other post http://forums.adobe.com/message/5338632.
Did you ever get to the bottom of this? Flash Builder just crashed on my machine and now refuses to open—giving this error verbatim when I try to launch it from a command prompt.
EDIT: Google led me to this post, which mentions deleting the
C:\Users\[USERNAME]\Adobe Flash Builder 4.7\org.eclipse.core.resources directory (see the 2nd comment by christoph). This allowed Flash Builder to start again, but I had to import all my projects (thanks, Adobe, for wasting an hour of my time today).
Thanks stenrap2.. Only an hour wasted? That's good!
I did solve it yes - I did something similar to http://forums.adobe.com/message/4611386.
Although, I'm not sure why there's a cleanup tool instead of actually fixing the issues and costing developers time and money.
